When it comes to social media, there’s a fine line between teaching your children how to protect their privacy and scaring them. Chances are that many online interactions they have will be pleasant, fun and enjoyable. However, it’s important to make them aware that public opinion can flip at the drop of a hat. Making a racist, homophobic or politically incorrect comment (whether it’s inadvertent or on purpose!) can cause a well-known person to be “cancelled” in the blink of an eye or come back to haunt someone who finds themselves in the public eye years later.
