Have you noticed how much our youth are using social media these days? YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, and Snapchat - it seems like they can spend countless hours on these platforms. Or maybe you’re that parent who is either restricting your tween or teens’ use altogether. Well, we all know that eventually, it will be a part of their normal social activity. This can be scary to think about with what we know about cyberbullying and online friendships or even dating relationships for that matter. But what if there was a way to prepare our children for these online interactions so that they are resilient against the odds? What if helping them build a stronger emotional intelligence can support them in managing the roller coaster of emotions that comes with social media altogether? If these are some of your concerns, there’s no need to worry. Our special guest, Dr. Melanie McNally, is back with us to shed light on how emotional intelligence can help our tweens and teens maintain a healthy online presence.
