Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/19/2013 -- As any parent of a middle schooler knows, the transition from elementary to middle school isn't always easy. A whole new world of opportunities – and challenges – opens up to a child. Middle school is, perhaps, the first time many tweens will have their own mobile devices and it is the first time many of them will use social media. As a result, much of a middle schooler's social world exists via apps like Instagram, Kik and facebook.
The team at MamaBear Family Safety App continues to advise parents about family safety and the dangers a child is exposed to when they use mobile devices and social media for the first time. They recently posted a blog offering advice to middle school parents about some of the changes they can expect when their child transitions to middle school -- from social media use to extra freedom to roam -- and how to deal with these changes.
