Teens saving their friends from social media
For teens maybe it is difficult to speak out about other teenagers with adults, but it they are worried about their friends and their behavior on social media, they should tell their parents.
“The biggest fear I always hear is ‘what if they get mad at me and they no longer talk to me’. I usually tell them it is better that they are mad at you for a time, but you saved their life”, says Nicole Rodriguez, Psychotherapist at Baptist Health Care & Counseling.
When parents have a funky feeling about what is going on with their kids, they should go with their gut. Amy Exum, also Psychotherapist, recommends to start a conversation to know the situation.
