Q: What do parents need to know about the Social Media Epidemic and what can they do to help their middle school age (10-13) Gen Zers navigate this new social landscape?

  •  A: We are in the midst of a Social Media Epidemic and it is dramatically influencing the Gen Zers (born 1996-2010) that are living in our homes and has changed the social landscape.
Generation Z:
  • Get their info from YouTube or from their peers versus mentors or parents
  • Communicate digitally 35% of the time.
  • According to a  new study, today’s teens care much less about driving, scoring a fake ID, or dating than their 1990’s counterparts.
  • They prefer to stay home, hang out and scroll through social media.
