Earlier this week on Regional Radio News, we outlined the continuing problems law enforcement and school leaders face in regards to social media.
School resource officer Mike Bennett says one thing he does to try to when various situations arise is educate the parents. He feels parents need to be in tune with what their kids are doing on social media.
Parents who are on social media need to set the example of how to act. Bennett points out, it is like anything else, children will emulate the behaviors of their parents.
Bennett holds back few punches when it comes to dealing with youth and the problems with cell phones or social media. He says there's some parents who do not realize what their kids are doing and others that do.
Bennett says social media disruptions encompass about 40-percent of the student body at the various buildings.
