In the lecture for this module, we read this study from the American Academy of Pediatrics (2011):

The site demonstrates some of the issues inherent in social media and its effect on children, adolescents, and families, and it gives guidance on the risks and benefits, cyber-bullying, online harassment, sexting, and privacy concerns.

After reading the recommendations or doing your own search on general recommendations about the use of social media, create a pamphlet you could hand out to parents at a back-to-school night for middle or high school students. The pamphlet (use a template from word) should include:

·       Benefits of using social media

·       Risks of using social media

·       More information on one specific topic you find applicable or interesting (e.g. cyber-bullying)

·       Information should be age-appropriate

Be sure to include the source(s) you used and submit an APA formatted reference page. Submit your completed assignment by following the directions linked below.
