“I have Instagram but I don’t use it. I have been trolled for it. But I don’t care.”


“I use to repost reels and a lot of people use to question it. I kept doing that, kept repeating. And they got comfortable with it. So I didn’t limit myself. I just let people know that this is me.”


As we wrap us our three part series of ‘Parenting, A Teenager’s Perspective‘, we talk about how children contend with more negative aspects of social media use, such as the pressure to present themselves in a certain way.


“It is not easy,” was a unanimous agreement. “You are expected to dress and behave in a certain way. You also get pulled into having certain political viewpoints.” Although there is no one-size-fits-all solution here, our three guests share their perspectives on the role of social media and how they deal with it.
