    #20 Talking Bodies & Sex w/ Teens in The Digital Age w/ Dolly Klock, MD - SmartSocial.com Podcast by Josh Ochs

    We caught up with an Dolly Klock, MD to learn the top 5 misconceptions parents have when having a talk with their kids about body image and sex.

    5 Misconceptions:

    1. We already had “the talk”. I’m done. (the importance of ongoing discussions about bodies and sex, sharing values and beliefs, and how these conversations help kids delay sex and have less risky behaviors)
    2. My teen would never watch porn or participate in sexting. (what parents need to know about both, developmentally normal curiosity, how brain development plays into both).
    3. Kids are all hooking up these days. (Are they really? How social media plays into this belief, and why it’s important to discuss hookup culture).
    4. My kid knows that models are all photoshopped. (the importance of talking about unrealistic body types in media, including on social media)
    5. My kid needs a phone in his/her room at night— it’s the alarm clock. (How tech affects sleep, which in turn affects emotions and learning)

    #18 Child Abduction Attempted Via Social Media (How It Happened) - SmartSocial.com Podcast by Josh Ochs

    One of my dear friends (Heather) told me a story about how an older man tried to abduct her daughter using social media. The older man tried to get her daughter to be his 17 year old girlfriend and groomed her to hang out with him using social media. In this episode I paraphrase the story based on my notes with Heather via phone call. Two things Heather did perfectly: 1) Got her kid a phone WITH a phone number (so she could track her daughter's calls and location). 2) Got her daughter an ATM card with a little bit of money each week to see where her daughter was spending money.

    #16 TBH App Is Dangerous For Kids - SmartSocial.com Podcast by Josh Ochs

    TBH stands for “to be honest”, and the tbh app is a social networking platform where users anonymously answer questions/polls about their classmates. https://smartsocial.com/tbh-app-parent-guide/

    What is the tbh app?

    TBH stands for “to be honest”, the tbh app is a social networking platform

    Users anonymously answer questions/polls about their classmates

    In addition to answering questions, users can submit new questions/polls

    In order to use the app, users have to grant tbh access to their phone’s location and contacts

    tbh uses the phone’s GPS to list schools in the area. Then, the user selects the school they attend

    Questions/polls are created by the developer in an attempt to keep the app from becoming insulting or negative

    When users create a poll, the poll must first be approved by the developer

    Questions are multiple choice and a list of students friend’s names are the available choices

    Users earn gems when their name is picked in a poll

    Gems act like trophies and are color coded: pink if a girl picks you or blue if a boy picks you

    Why should parents care?

    Users cannot use the tbh app unless they allow the app to access their phone’s location and contacts

    There is no verification process on the app so anyone can sign up and say they attend a school in their area, even if they are an adult

    Even though the questions/polls are approved by the developers, tbh can still promote bullying and make it easier for students to become a target

    Children can encounter inappropriate content if they spend time on the tbh app

    This app encourages users to anonymously critique their classmates which can promote unhealthy student interactions

    The gem system can become a form of cyberbullying since it is based around peer judgement

    tbh app in the news Privacy concerns, a future chat function, and the possibility of mean-use are still concerns [on tbh]. –Common Sense Media

    [tbh’s] ‘gamified’ structure still feeds the distraction and sense of disconnection that are causing epidemic levels of depression and isolation among today’s smartphone-addicted teens. –Fortune

    What can parents do? If your teen has the tbh app, have them delete it and discuss the dangers of anonymous apps

    Check out our Parent App Guide page and encourage your student to use apps in our Green Zone

    Discourage your teen from using anonymous apps or any apps that promote giving anonymous feedback

    Challenge your child to find positive and new ways to connect with their peers on social media

    Consistently work on having an open and healthy dialog with your children about social media

    Ask your teen about their day at school and online As a parent, strive to be approachable and supportive Consider joining Parent University to get videos you can watch WITH your kids so they will learn how to be safe and smart online.
