There is seldom any part of our day when we are not bombarded by the noise of media telling us who we should be. With the depression rate of children over the past 10 years skyrocketing, these sentiments are lived each day by teens. Kids struggle daily with trying to become who society tells them they should be. The elephant in the room is the role that social media plays in this phenomenon.
Generally, I know about these apps before your child does. However, every once in a while I’ll hear about an app from a parent, a doctor, a guidance counselor – or in the case of today’s subject – from my sister Lynn.
Lynn shared an article on Facebook about the Yellow App, Now called Yubo.) This video examines the new Yellow App closely so that you can make an educated decision about its place on your child’s device.
To discover more about your child’s use of technology, and how you can help guide them through digital life, please consider ordering our book. All proceeds go to future research that supports our mission to educate families on their child’s digital tattoo.
