Conversations to Have with Your Child Before the Internet Does




With social media becoming one of our main forms of communication and replacing our in-person interactions, children have been outsourcing their self-esteem through their online peers. In this TEDx Talk, Shamare Holmes speaks about how to facilitate the hard and sometimes uncomfortable conversations that should be had with middle-school-aged youth prior to social media exposure to prevent complications associated with self-image, misinformation, information-sharing, and the long-term impact of instant gratification. Shamare Holmes is a Graduate Student as an M.S. Public Administration Candidate. She is currently working as an Assistant Youth Director and Community Liason.
