Have you ever wondered when is the appropriate time to discuss social media use with your child/ren? While social media users are required to be at least 13 years of age according to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), many children become aware of social sites and apps much earlier. Driscoll families are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with the different forms of social media that students are exposed to so they can support safe, responsible and respectful citizenship in a digital world. At Driscoll School, we follow the Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship Curriculum. In addition to learning more about useful media resources, families can also find answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ’s) by visiting Common Sense Media HERE.
