Cyberbullying: Make sure you monitor and supervise all social media your child uses. Many require users to be 13 and older, but some students work around this. Here's a great article to get you started on some unfamiliar-to-adults apps that kids are using.
A note about Smartphones, tablets, and your child's well-being: Children today have access to technology twenty-four hours a day. Some parents find that setting limits is helpful to let their child "recharge" from the flurry of social interaction in school and online. Other parents get their kids to "turn in" their phones at night so they won't be disturbed by all-night notifications from texting and other social media. This is also a good way to monitor appropriate relationships at this delicate stage between childhood and young adulthood!
