What should parents know about teens and social media? When should they get their own phone or device? How often should teens use devices? Should teens or tweens even be on social media networks?

In a special back-to-school episode, I interviewed author and teen/tween expert Ana Homayoun about the perils and opportunities of your child having a device and access to social media. It was an insightful discussion that isn’t all doomsday and cautionary tales. My 14-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter both have their own phones and use devices and social media regularly. Ana even validated that it seems like their mother and I are doing it right.
