Tips for Monitoring Children on Social Media by Jeana Lee Tahnk of Screen Play

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently released findings from a comprehensive study on the impact social media has on kids and families. Although there are real benefits to kids using sites like Facebook, including increased communication, access to information and help in developing a sense of self, there can be serious downsides to all this online sharing too.

There are software suites you can purchase to monitor your child’s Internet usage; many even enable you to view the exact keys that were typed, time spent online and all computer activity in general. Popular programs such as Net Nanny and PureSight PC let you monitor social media sites, block chats, filter content and much more. You can even monitor your child’s cell phone with a software program like My Mobile Watchdog.

Social networking is on the rise, and the study found that 22 percent of teenagers log onto their favorite social media sites more than 10 times a day, and that 75 percent own cell phones. This level of engagement online increases the risks of cyberbullying, “Facebook depression” (a new phenomenon where “de-friending” and online bullying lead to symptoms of depression), exposure to inappropriate content, and sexting. Just as we prepare our kids for life in the real world, we should prepare them for life in the online world. Read on for tips that every parent should keep in mind. To safely encourage an internet-savy child check out these Kid-Friendly Social Networking Sites

Create Ground Rules If your kids are old enough to be using the computer on their own, they are old enough to understand that there are rules they need to abide by. Breaking them should not have a lesser consequence than if they broke a rule in the offline world. The best way for families to agree on ground rules is to create a contract that all parties must sign.

No Underage Facebooking Did you know that no one under the age of 13 is permitted to join Facebook? However, there is no real way for Facebook to truly enforce it, because anyone can lie about their year of birth. You need to make sure that your child stays away from Facebook until 13 AND until you are comfortable with him or her having an account. Check Privacy Settings Check that your privacy settings for the Internet and Facebook are set to the strictest levels. Depending on which browser you are using, you can adjust the settings directly from the options tab and adjust levels around cookies, third party sites and more. This not only protects the computer user, but also the computer from the threat of viruses. Checking your Facebook privacy settings is easy as well. Use Filtering Software

Get To Know What Your Child’s Habits Are You don’t need to be a super sleuth and spy on your kid’s every online move, but it is important to be aware of the kinds of sites he is frequenting and the people he is associating with. You get to know the friends he’s hanging out with at school, and his online friends shouldn’t be any different. One of the contract rules should be that you have full access to his Facebook friends and can take a look whenever you wish. Keep the Computer in a Central Location It’s much easier to keep tabs on any online activity when the computer is located in a high-traffic zone than if your child is using a computer in the privacy of her own room. Place the computer in a central location like your kitchen or family room so that everything is out in the open. Monitor the Pictures Your Child Posts Online In an ideal world, your child would never post a photo of herself online, but that might not be entirely realistic. If she wants to share photos with her friends via email or a social networking site, be sure you know exactly which pictures are being posted. Make sure the content of the photo is completely innocuous and that no identifiable locales in the background are noticeable. 8

Be a Good Example of How to Use Social Media If you are tweeting and updating your Facebook page at a stop light and taking every opportunity to “just check something,” you’re setting a poor precedent for social media usage that your child will surely follow. Always remember to ask yourself if you’re setting a good example and demonstrating proper technology etiquette as well. Limit Cell Phone Use Just as you would limit use of a computer, TV or gaming system, you can do the same with a cell phone. Set rules for the device, only allowing cell phone usage at certain hours in the evening or after homework has been completed. Teach Kids about an Online Reputation Many kids don’t seem to understand the permanence of the online world. Make sure to stress to your kids what a digital footprint is and the impact inappropriate messages or images could have if a future college administrator or employer were to stumble upon them. Talk to Kids about Online Dangers You may feel like you’re scaring your kids when talking to them about the dangers of being online, but it’s better for them to be scared than to be unaware. Get to Know the Technology Kids have gained a mastery of technology so quickly and can easily pick up on the nuances that any new gadget has, far more easily that we can in some cases. It is every parent’s responsibility to know exactly which key features are included in the gadgets our kids are using. Stephen Balkam, founding CEO of the Family Online Safety Institute, says, “This can be a humbling experience. You may find that you had no idea that the Sony Playstation Portable that you bought your 11-yearold last Christmas had a web browser. Or that your 5year-old son (with the help of his older brother) has managed to create an avatar on Club Penguin and regularly goes for in-world pizzas with his other penguin friends.

Here is a glimpse into public knowledge of an extraordinary person who risked her life to advocate for the education of women and children. Malala Yousafzai (Malālah Yūsafzay: Urdu: ‫م " " ""الل " " ""ہ‬ ‫ ;ی ""وس ""فزئ ""ی‬Pashto: ‫[ م ""الل ""ه ی ""وس ""فزۍ‬məˈlaːlə jusəf ˈzəj]; [2] born July 12, 1997) is a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate. She is known for human rights advocacy, especially the education of women and children in her native Swat Valley in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, northwest Pakistan, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. Her advocacy has grown into an international movement. Yousafzai was born in Mingora, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. Her family came to run a chain of schools in the region. Considering Jinnah and Benazir Bhutto as her role models, she was particularly inspired by her father's thoughts and humanitarian work. In early 2009, when she was 11–12, she wrote a blog under a pseudonym for the BBC Urdu detailing her life during the Taliban occupation of Swat. The following summer, journalist Adam B. Ellick made a New York Times documentary about her life as the Pakistani military intervened in the region. She rose in

prominence, giving interviews in print and on television, and she was nominated for the International Children's Peace Prize by activist Desmond Tutu. Yousafzai was injured on October 9, 2012 by a Taliban gunman when he attempted to murder her. She was shot in the face, remained unconscious and in critical condition at the Rawalpindi Institute of Cardiology, but later her condition improved enough for her to be sent to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, UK. The murder attempt sparked a national and international outpouring of support for Yousafzai. Deutsche Welle wrote in January 2013 that she may have become "the most famous teenager in the world". Weeks after her murder attempt, a group of fifty leading Muslim clerics in Pakistan issued a fatwā against those who tried to kill her. Since recovering, Yousafzai became a prominent education activist. Based out of Birmingham, she founded the Malala Fund, a non-profit organization, and in 2013 co-authored I am 10

Malala, an international bestseller. In 2012, she was the recipient of Pakistan's first National Youth Peace Prize and the 2013 Sakharov Prize. In 2014, she was announced as the co-recipient of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize, along with Kailash Satyarthi, for her struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education. Aged 17 at the time, she became the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate. In 2015, Yousafzai was a subject of the Oscar-shortlisted documentary He Named Me Malala. The 2013, 2014 and 2015 issues of Time magazine featured her as one of the most influential people globally. In 2017, Yousafzai's children's picture book Malala's Magic Pencil was published. From 2013 to 2017, she was a pupil at the all-girls Edgbaston High School in Birmingham. In 2017, she was awarded honorary Canadian citizenship and became the youngest person to address the House of Commons of Canada. In August 2017, she gained admission to Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford to study for a bachelor's degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE).

YM•Health BENEFITS OF GARLIC by Helen Nichols Garlic History In ancient times, many cultures used garlic as medicine. In India and China, it was used as an aid in digestion, breathing problems, and to fight parasitic infections. Garlic was referenced in Canon of Medicine as having a compound that works against “arthritis, toothache, chronic cough, constipation, parasitic infestation, snake and insect bites, and gynecologic diseases, as well as in infectious diseases (as antibiotic).” The use of garlic became more common in Medieval times and is still a popular remedy for many ailments. Health Benefits of Garlic Medicinal Elements Although garlic does not typically serve as a major source of essential nutrients, it may contribute to several dietary factors with potential health benefits. These include the presence of oligosaccharides, arginine-rich proteins, and, depending on soil and growing conditions, selenium and flavonoids. According to the Journal of N u tri ti o n , “C o u n tl e ss stu d i e s h a ve demonstrated the value of vegetables and fruits in the prevention of cancer and heart disease. Good for Your Metabolism

The nervous system is the major communication network in the human body. Its normal functioning is strongly dependent on the maintenance of its structural integrity and many complex metabolic processes. Neurological disease can be a result of malnutrition or mal-absorption, which then lead to bigger neurological problems. The central nervous system controls all bodily functions, degenerative diseases that affect the brain, the spine, and the spinal cord. The neurodegenerative disorders include Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and more. While Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common neurodegenerative disorder, one of the main culprits happens when the nervous system is overridden with bad cholesterol. Garlic is now being used for its ability to lower cholesterol in smaller animals. “A number of studies have similarly shown that garlic and garlic preparations significantly reduced plasma lipids, especially total cholesterol and LDLcholesterol in humans. Animal studies have shown that supplementation of garlic in the diet depressed the hepatic activities of lipogenic and cholesterogenic enzymes.” Subjects with cardiovascular disease have shown positive results when taking even as little as 1g of garlic every day.


Anti-Cancer Properties Cancer is the leading disease for Americans. Studies have shown that ingesting 5 grams of garlic every day blocks the excretion of nitropoline—an enzyme that helps to retard cancer cells. One study claims: “Preclinical models provide rather compelling evidence that garlic and its associated components can lower the incidence of breast, colon, skin, uterine, esophagus, and lung cancers. Suppression of nitrosamine formation continues to surface as one of the most likely mechanisms by which garlic retards cancer.” Evidence has also supported garlic’s ability to inhibit tumors and other agents that are responsible for causing cancer. “Many studies have been conducted that show that garlic also provides various antitumor effects. In rodents, garlic and its constituents have been reported to inhibit the development of chemically induced tumors in the liver colon, prostate, mammary gland, esophagus, lung, skin, and stomach. Such positive research has also included tumor cell growth inhibition and chemopreventive effects.” The National Cancer Institute stated: “Several population studies show an association between increased intake of garlic and reduced risk of certain cancers including cancers of

YM•Health the stomach,  colon,  esophagus,  pancreas, and breast.” Boosts the Immune System Consuming garlic is one way to give your immune system an extra boost. With high antioxidants, garlic helps to eliminate free radicals and sickness-causing toxins. One 1 2 - w e e k s t u d y o f 1 4 0  r a n d o m i z e d volunteers confirmed that garlic (or allicin supplements) has an adverse effect on the common cold. In fact, colds were reduced by more than 60% in the volunteers who received garlic. The other group that received a placebo recorded worse symptoms of the cold and had more complaints in their daily diary. The volunteers who received the garlic capsule had symptoms of a less severe degree for shorter amounts of time (1.5 days). The volunteers receiving the placebo found that they had the cold for longer periods of time (5 days)  and more frequently in the months of November to February – when  the survey was conducted. A similar study reported that doubling the dosage of garlic reduced the number of sick days by another 61% . If you want to avoid getting sick or decrease the severity of your sickness, add garlic to your diet. Fights High Blood Pressure Garlic gains much praise and recognition for its treatment and prevention of heartrelated disease. Garlic Supplements on Amazon That We Recommend Garlic consumption has been proven in the scientific world to have positive effects by lowering blood pressure. “Several clinical studies, beginning in 1979 until 2013, have shown that garlic reduced blood pressure in more than 80% of patients suffering from high blood.” An  investigation studying the effects of garlic on 47 hypertensive patients found that garlic decreased the blood pressure by 12 mmHg. One of the positives of garlic is that it is natural and does not have adverse

effects that other medicine has on your body. Similar studies, in which patients have taken 200 mg of garlic powder three times daily, showed a reduction of diastolic blood pressure. As cardiovascular disease kills hundred of thousands of people every year, this is a very inexpensive addition to your diet that may help with hypertension. If you feel compelled to eat meat and fatheavy or fried foods, adding garlic to the dish will at least work against some of the low-density fats you are adding to your body. Anti-Microbial Effects of Garlic For centuries, garlic has been cited as a useful agent to fight infectious diseases. In 1858, Louis Pasteur noted the antibacterial effect of allium against many fastreproducing bacteria. “These include Salmonella, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Salmonella, Klebsiella, Micrococcus, Bacillus subtulis, Clostridium, Mycobacterium, and Helicobacter.” Allicin, the active antibacterial compound in garlic, modifies the ability of bacteria to reproduce and prevents them from spreading. One way to prevent E. coli in your cooking is by using raw garlic as a rub for all meats—the powerful antibiotic agent in garlic will kill those germs. The same can be done  with  salads – using raw garlic in dressings may save you from spoiled spinach or lettuce. Antiplaque Properties In addition to antibacterial properties, garlic has also shown strong evidence of fighting human dental plaque microbiota. Garlic acts similar to the pharmaceutical ciprofloxacin (used to fight infections in the mouth). Historically, cavities and mouth infections were also combatted by chewing on a whole clove. “Several studies have shown that the extract was effective against a host of protozoa including Candida albicans, the main plaque agent in the mouth and yeast infection causing bacteria, and many other bacteria.”Garlic  is a very 15

good replacement for heavy antibiotics that can weaken the immune system and leave patients open to other infections and bacteria. Rich in Antioxidants Antioxidants work against the free radials that retard cells and cause aging in the body. Toxin build-up directly influences d i s e a s e s s u c h a s c a r d i o v a s c u l a r, degenerative, and cancer. Aged garlic extract (AGE) is renowned for preventing the oxidation of the cells that makes them harmful. “AGE protects DNA against free radical–mediated damage and mutations, inhibits multistep carcinogenesis and defends against ionizing radiation and UVinduced damage, including protection against some forms of UV-induced immunosuppression.” As a result, aged garlic extract is responsible for protecting the brain from memory loss, losing motor and neuron controls in the brain, and helping with longevity. The higher the dosage of AGE, the more antioxidants the body receives, thus diminishing stress. This works to stop degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, high blood pressure, and or take a supplement capsule  in order to fight the common cold or winter flu.   During World War II, garlic was also employed to fight gangrene. The boost in the immune system fights off infection and one of the methods used was the making of garlic tea: steeping chopped garlic in hot water. Raw garlic was also placed on wounds to stops the spread of infection.
