    • 4. What is the draw?
      • Watch video created by Sunnyside Teen Council.
      • MySpace is a way to show who you are and what you care about.
      • Opportunity to have a place where you feel like you belong (not always the case at school or at home).
    • 5. Why do parents need to educate themselves on Social Networking
      • Teens need guidance making their way in the world and online activities is a major part of their world.
      • The social pressures faced online are just as real as the pressures parents faced as a teenager.
    • 6. What Should a Parent Worry About?
      • Advertisements are everywhere in very subtle forms.
      • Cyberbullying – what happens online is likely happening face-to-face as well.
      • The experience is VERY gendered. Girls often create a lot of hype around their sexuality to get male attention.
    • 7. Advice for Parents
      • Read a few books on the subject. There are lots of good reads listed on the handout.
      • Tips from the bookmark
        • Be reasonable with your expectations.
        • Be open with your teen.
        • Talk with your teen about how they use the services online.
        • Consider moving the family computer to a central area of your home.
