Anonymous messaging + the underdeveloped frontal cortex of most teenagers is usually a bad idea. Then, add a social media platform like Instagram and the risks just go up.

We’re constantly on the lookout for the best tools for parents and we’ve put them in our Resources. Imagine FREE videos for kids in grades K-8 that parents can watch with their kids. We provide a short list of parental control resources we’ve tested and we trust. School and church leaders will find best practice policy examples to use (again, free).
