Parent Coffee Talk: Facebook and your Children

Andrea Hernandez and I hosted another successful Parent Coffee Talk in the month of February. This month's topic was Facebook and your Children. We had a wonderful group of parents join us on a Tuesday morning to exchange and discuss our experiences, concerns and questions about Facebook.

We watched the video clip "Social Networking in Plain English"

We walked through and explained step by step common terms and lingo of facebook, such as:

  • Profile
  • Tags (tagging)
  • Wall
  • Status
  • Friend Request
  • Groups

Consensus among participants of our Coffee Talk was that allowing (or not) of our young students (Age limit to have a facebook account is 13 years!) is a family decision. The most important aspect is to continue talking to your children about your family's values and how they relate to the online world. Keeping lines of communication open and be involved by monitoring your child's social network activities.
