MYTH: Eighth grade is the best age for a smartphone. Teens need social media because that is where all of their friends are and they will be social outcasts if they don’t have it.

FACT: In 2018 at the Digital Media and Developing Minds Congress, research was discussed regarding social media use in eighth graders. Studies show that mid-adolescence, specifically eighth grade, is a time of heightened vulnerability to risky and reckless behavior. Part of the reason for this is the increase in reward-seeking behavior fueled by the remodeling of the brain during this stage of brain development.

For example, in sixth grade, top Internet searches centered around the subject of animals, but in 8th grade, top searches were depression and relationships. When asked if they had ever made rude or mean comments in texts, 36% of 6th graders said they had. That increased to 45% in 7th graders and even more in 8th graders with 54% (more than half) saying they had sent mean texts. When asked if they had ever uploaded embarrassing photos of a friend, 6th graders came in at 7% while 8th graders were a staggering 35%.

The more time a teen spends on social media and games, the more time they are spending with their peers. With 24/7 online access your teen never really “comes home.” Studies confirm that peer-oriented kids do worse in all areas of life than parent-oriented kids. Teens are not equipped to lead teens like adults are supposed to. Teens need parents as their guide. When family attachment is stronger than peer attachment, teens have a healthier social life.

Social media doesn’t make stronger friendships. Tethered to their smartphones 24/7, teens admit to loving their phones more than their friends. Teens now perfer to go to their rooms so they can hang out on their phones in privacy. But are they really socializing or are they just becoming more lonely and depressed? Research says the latter. A 13-year-old girl explains to Twenge, “We didn’t have a choice to know any life without iPads or iPhones. I think we like our phones more than we like actual people.”

SOLUTION: More is not better when it comes to friends. Encourage your teen to build a few solid friendships rather than 400 shallow friends. Have their friends over to spend in-person, non-tech time with them. Get to know their friends and their friends’ parents. Teach your teen how to have a relationship by spending non-tech time with friends. Create family rituals, traditions and plenty of family time to enrich family connections and healthy friendships will follow.

Are you a good parent?

All parents on here have times when they question what they are doing. They wonder if they are a "good parent." Let me give you my professional criteria for a good parent in your situation.

Are you acting out of love?
Are you trying to do your best?
Do you question what you are doing?
Do you seek out advice and try to learn as you go?
Are you worried about being a good parent?

Answering yes to those questions makes you a good parent! Does it mean always making the right decisions, never getting frustrated at your child, never saying things that you regret later, and never feeling guilty about wanting some time alone? NO! There is no one right answer, and there is so much that we do not know in this field. There are many different approaches and no right one. You are not always going to make the right decisions; no one will. Rarely do the momentary decisions that you make have drastic or long term effects on your child. If you were a "bad parent," you would:

Not be posting on this board in the first place.
Rarely question what you are doing.
Rarely feel guilty over what you did.
Rarely seek advice
and rarely worry if you are a "good parent."

The fact that you guys are here puts you in the running for a good parent!

Take a deep breath, hold each others’ hands, laugh and cry with each other, and take note that you all are special people and loving parents. There are no exact manual or right answers in parenting in general, and especially for autism. There is not a more daunting task than facing the day to day uncertainty of the journey that you travel. You will stumble, you will fall, you will get mud all over you, but most likely, since you are a “good” loving parent, you will get up every morning and do it all over again!

When frustrated, drained, feeling confused, and inadequate, we often think, feel, say, and act in ways that we regret later! You cannot parent a special needs child without these moments! Every parent has them; every "human" experiences them! It is not these momentary frustrations that define if you are a good parent. It is the ongoing passion to love, support, and advocate for your child, even when others around you may not be giving you that feedback. It is the intent and passion for which you navigate your journey that defines your legacy as a parent. So, forgive and forget when you stumble and simply pull yourself back up and take that step forward. We will be here holding your hand and patting you on the back!
