Social Media - Another Way For Kids To Feel Rejected
I am hyper sensitive to people feeling rejected/left out. Especially teenagers. I just hate it when any kid I know ends up feeling left out.
This New York Times article points out that social media is yet another new way for kids to feel left out.
And I’ll be honest, it’s not just kids who can feel left out. I’ve also felt left out a few times as I’ve checked my friends’ and colleagues’ statuses and they are somewhere that I wish I could be.
Our 8 year-old has been particularly grumpy at home lately, and we think it’s because of some of the friendship dynamics she’s experiencing (point of clarification: she is NOT using social media yet). Dave and I talked last week and we’re trying to be EXTRA understanding and EXTRA communicative of our love for Krista, and how CRAZY we are about her.
If a kid you know is acting out of sorts, there’s a good chance that it has something to do with their friendships. What can you do for that kid to show them that you love them, and even more importantly, that God loves them no matter what?
