To support grade 5 students with their transition to middle school, four grade 6 students came by this morning to chat with fifth graders.
We discussed the increased pressure to use social media in middle school. The sixth graders also discussed how to successfully navigate this new frontier by doing the following:
- THINK before you share/post
- ASK for permission before sharing or posting a photo or video of another person
- If you don’t want your mom, dad, or principal to see it… don’t post or share
Interestingly, all of the sixth graders agreed that life was easier without social media and pointed out that you don’t have to have a phone or social media… it’s probably easier if you don’t!
Please take a moment this week and talk with your child today about social media today!
