I would think kids today are thinking about their safety in America today. Everything on the news is riots, anger, fighting and anxiety. How can they come away with the feeling of comfort after watching the nightly news?
When you look online you see self promotion, fake stories and questionable beliefs. What are they to think? How do decipher information that is real? I really think kids today have to become more investigative and question everything they hear in order to have a clearer picture of the world that surrounds them.
Today more than ever kids have apps, websites and other information gathering tools that can lead to confusion. Parents, teachers can’t do it all, media moguls like Facebook and Twitter need to be on the lookout for fake and false theories that can lead to ingrained confusion.
