In an effort for Instagram to provide a safer kinder environment for teens, they have published a helpful wellness page for parents. We realize this is an attempt to keep their young audience on the app after the alarming number of negative social and emotional effects but we believe they have made progress with their new updates as well as this helpful how-to video and easy setup graphics.
This isn’t a green light to let your kids jump on social media now. What we like the most about the wellness page is the emphasis on parent involvement in our child’s social media life like we are in their school life etc.
If your child is on Instagram please follow these safety steps and let us know if you have questions.
