Advice to students: Make technology your servant, not your master. Don't let social media provide for your social development. "Likes" should come from personal interaction with family and friends, not your posts. Listen to your parents.

Advice to parents: Your children will be raised either by you or by their social media. That is your choice. Young people will always choose social media. Be a parent.
