A Guide for Trusted Adults: Social media and Canadian girls/young women

February 10, 2017 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

Media Smarts has posted a resource titled A Guide for Trusted Adults  [PDF]based on YWCA’s consultation with Canadian girls and young women about their concerns and the issues they face online and on social media platforms and the ways they want the adults in their lives to support them.” It is written by the YWCA and Project Shift: Creating a safer digital world for young women.

“This guide is designed to prepare all the adults young women turn to, including parents/guardians, teachers, mentors, health and wellness providers, law enforcement, and technology professionals, to be the trusted adults they need when they have problems online. Understanding young women’s rights and responsibilities, and helping them to understand them, is an important part of being able to help them participate fully online. It includes:

  • practical information about the issues girls and young women face
  • conversation-starters for adults to start talking to them about these issues
  • ways to support and advocate for them
  • information on legal issues that can affect girls’ online lives”
