February 25th – Social Media and Me – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Time: 4:30 – 5:30 PM
Social media, the prevalence of smartphones, viral video, and access to any, and all information at children’s fingertips have had a profound impact on the internal makeup of children and their view of themselves and the world.
The Good – Social media can allow children to connect with their friends and share cherished memories.
The Bad – The associated dangers of social media are well documented: sleep issues, cyberbullying, self-image, and self-esteem issues.
The Ugly – Oversharing, exposed to sexual predators.
The Faith Connection – We must express that Catholic moral teaching is based upon the sanctity and dignity of all human life and that we, as beings created in the image and likeness of God, are designed for good, not evil in our world. Thus, we can influence the views of others by what we post, bring encouragement and spiritual guidance to others.
