Health Tip: Keep Teens Safer on Social Media

Set ground rules

(HealthDay News) -- Many teens love chatting with friends on social media, but it's up to parents to make sure these interactions are appropriate.

Here are suggestions from the National Crime Prevention Council:

  • Make sure your teen only provides the required information when filling out a profile, and skips the optional. The teen shouldn't include an address or phone number.
  • Have your teen make a profile available to friends only.
  • Your teen should only "friend" an acquaintance, never someone unknown.
  • Encourage your teen to post only information that's appropriate and doesn't reveal private details.
