Social Media Wellness: Helping Tweens and Teens Thrive in an Unbalanced Digital World

By Ana Homayoun

Today’s students face a challenging paradox: the digital tools they need to complete their work are often the source of their biggest distractions. Students can quickly become overwhelmed trying to manage the daily confluence of online interactions with schoolwork, extracurricular activities, and family life. Written by noted author and educator Ana Homayoun, Social Media Wellness is the first book to successfully decode the new language of social media for parents and educators and provide pragmatic solutions to help students:

  • Manage distractions  
  • Focus and prioritize  
  • Improve time-management 
  • Become more organized and boost productivity 
  • Decrease stress and build empathy 
With fresh insights and a solutions-oriented perspective, this crucial guide will help parents, educators and students work together to promote healthy socialization, effective self-regulation, and overall safety and wellness.

-This is the essential guide to navigating the ephemeral and transactional communications woven into the language of social media online and IRL. I relished every page of this book. It was jam-packed with sound and seasoned self-management and executive-functioning tips and systems. The research and artfully reconstructed narratives, tools, ideas, and reflective questions feed the systematic and practical approaches the author shares to empower students, parents, and educators alike. I can't wait to add this to my professional library and share it with all of my teachers!!!-
