Young adult librarians may be called on to assist parents of teens, and medical professionals can provide family-friendly resources and information for their use.
For inquiries concerning media use and teens, the American Academy of Pediatrics (which is described on their website as dedicated to “the health, safety and well-being of infants, children, adolescents and young adults”) provides relevant and useful information. There are online articles, audio, and video, with a comprehensive and easy-to-browse list in the “Family Life/Media” section of their Healthychildren.org webpages.
One set of resources, “Social Media Resources for Parents and Teens,” contains annotations and links to Healthychildren.org (“adolescent media use”), AAP.org SafetyNet (“internet safety”), Facebook Safety (“summary. . . tips. . . tools”), Common Sense Media (“age-appropriate media use”), and NetSmartz Workshop (“tips and discussion starters”).
