The Ever-Changing Struggle of Parenting

With today's ever-changing social landscape, the majority of young peoples' interactions occur mostly through social media sites, and it is often difficult for parents to monitor, control, and navigate their child's interactions.  The feedback given through social media often guides our children towards relationships and responsibilities that they might not be ready for.  In an effort to help them blend in with the social lexicon, parents have, in some cases, allowed more freedom to younger children than would have been acceptable in the past.  Dr. Leonard Sax is a well-known pediatrician who addresses the effects of social media as well as the loosening of parental controls and the expectations we place on our children - or don't - in the following article.
