Limiting Social Media for Teens




It is important to control in some way that teenagers do not overuse some of the applications and websites. Nicole Rodriguez, Psychotherapist at Baptist Health Care & Counseling, says cellphones are a privilege, and not a right.

“Parents have the control over their teens’ cellphone, and it is okay to invade their privacy. They need that and if they grow up with that, they will be okay with that”, she points out.

Because of the dangers of social media and what they can get into, parents have to be aware of what is going on and they should be checking on their kids.
