Ask, “Have you used the computer and Internet today?” 4. Share a bit about your SM usage as a way to facilitate conversation about their habits 5. Keep the computer in a public part of your home 6. Discuss what “good judgment” means 7. Make rules: - must share password; must allow you to check; must friend you 8.

22. Social Media and our Kids: Strategies Other ideas include:  Regularly change the passcodes on the Wi-Fi router – withholding technology is one of the most effective ways to guide your child’s behavior.  Parental controls – Net Nanny, Norton Family, Kasperksy PURE – allow key logging, filters, but is this going too far?
