Ep 21: Social Media and Motherhood
Do you have a love/hate relationship with social media? This seems to be a fairly common opinion. We often hear only negative things about social media platforms, and the effect that it has on our lives. Many of these concerns are valid. However, there are also a lot of wonderful things that come out of platforms like Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, and YouTube.
When you are a parent, you have to navigate social media not only for yourself, but also for your children, and maybe even your business. Whether we like it or not, social media is not going anywhere, so we need to teach our children how to use it wisely. Today I’m filling you in on my view of social media, and how I balance it with motherhood.
In this episode I cover:
- Using social media intentionally
- My best practices for safety with kids and social media
- Comparison of relationships, lifestyles, and material things on social media
- Setting social media boundaries with your children
- My reaction to negative experiences and comments
