Teens And Social Media – HIRL Episode 72

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Sharing is caring!

Free homeschool podcast about teens and social mediaWe are beyond the days of speculating about whether social media will last. Instead social media continues to morph and reinvent itself into new platforms with new target audiences. Whether it focuses on 140 characters of shared data or photos or just modified chatting with friends, social media is invasive.

Are you wondering how to navigate the virtual worlds of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat with your teenagers? One of our HIRLers wrote in and asked us to tackle the topic of teenagers and social media, so we did what we do best.

We sat down and had an open and honest discussion with our own teenagers. We don’t do things perfectly and we face the same challenges as you do in your homeschools. We even have regrets. Won’t you join us on this podcast as we get real with our kids and let you peek into the conversation with us?

More than ever, we want to hear from you. Let us know what you think. This is a great discussion and we think you will love it.
