Social media looks very exciting to children. It is filled with new places and people. It can easily be all consuming unless boundaries are established. Social media has many different venues: Skype, Facebook, Kik, Instagram, and Twitter just to name a few. With all these different platforms comes different rules for engagement and many times kids and teens do not understand the potential dangers of engaging on social media and different platforms. Parents have to ensure that their kids use it safely or else they may end up making mistakes that can cause serious harm.

3. Watching Pornography
4. Cyber Bullying/ stalking
