We live in a digital world. Social media, texting, video games, and even online pornography are common parts of growing up in the 21st century. That’s why Media Aware Parent is an online resource that takes a 21st century approach to helping parents talk with their teens about relationships, sex, and media. In Media Aware Parent, parents can brush up on the facts about teen development, practice talking with their child, hear interviews from other families, and better navigate the teen years by becoming a Media Aware Parent.
A Media Aware Parent knows that they cannot completely shield their child from the world, but they can help their teen prepare to successfully and responsibly navigate it. A Media Aware Parent has ongoing, honest, and open conversations with their teen about important topics like pornography, sexting, consent, dating violence, and teen media use. A Media Aware Parent knows that discussions about relationships, sex, and media are not always easy, but are always worth it.
