Should My Teenager be Microblogging?
ProsTeenagers have a way to express themselves creatively, personally, and comically through writing, videos, and pictures. They can also keep up with other friends, the news, celebrity news, and other things that interest them while sharing tidbits of significance to them. This also gives you an opportunity to talk to them about your standards and expectations in how you wish them to dignify themselves to others digitally, as well as in person.
ConsTeens can get caught up in subjects that are not age-appropriate for them such as pornography and R-rated material. Websites such as Tumblr are meant to be hip and creative but can often turn raunchy in the search engine that readily will show images and videos depicting sex and drug usage. There is also the ability to spend too much time microblogging instead of doing the things that they are accountable for such as chores or homework. Overall as a parent, you should not be too worried about microblogging until your adolescent gives you a reason to be. With anything, they need your guidance and direction to make good decisions pertaining to microblogging.
