The web of the social media: What are the traps that children get caught in?

Duration
60’
Modern children literally live on social media. For them, this is an environment for self-expression. And it is their personal space where they learn, make friends, look for understanding, recognition and love. At the same time, most adults are concerned about how children use social media, who they talk to online, and what information they publish about themselves. As well as how much time social media take and how they affect children’s mental health.

The concerns of adults are completely justified because the online space can both entertain and teach us and be dangerous. Social media is a favorable environment for various forms of online violence, particularly cyberbullying.

How does social media affect children’s mental health? Should we control the number of a child’s accounts and the time they spend online? What dangers on social media should we discuss with the child? The experts of Docudays UA’s National Campaign Against Cyberbullying will talk about the types of cyberbullying that are the most common on social media and about what you can do if your child finds themselves in a situation of online bullying.
