Finally - research that confirms teens aren't leaving Facebook in the groves that we have been hearing.  But do you know what other places your kids are hanging?   #digitalparenting  
We are constantly hearing headlines saying that our teens are leaving Facebook.  I know I am someone that has been debating that.  Not because I don’t believe they are leaving it, but because I think they may be using other social media sites in addition to Facebook. The fact is Facebook offers too many functions that …

STUDY: #Cyberbullying  continues since no intervenes the trolls online.
Administrators never rush to the aide of the victims. While, the sufferers seem to bear it and try to move-on, allowing cyber-bullies to continue their virtual aggression.

The virtual world of social media is a dominant force in the lives of many teenagers. Nearly 40 percent of teens carry a smart phone, according to data released by Pew Research Center. But these days the online world is having dire effects on the way some girls are trying to navigate the real world.

Why offline #parenting   is just as important as online monitoring. Your teens need to have the common sense to make wise decisions in cyberspace.   #digitalparenting  
Beneath the sierra-filtered fall foliage and #skinnyarm besties lurks something much, much darker.

Basic Information
Author and Parent Advocate

Sue Scheff founded Parents’ Univeral Resource Experts (P.U.R.E) in 2001.  It was created to help educate parents in a loosely regulated industry called “teen help.”  After struggling with her own teenage daughter, she traveled down a road that was not only destructive to her - but put her daughter in harms way.

Sue Scheff is now a Parent Advocate and continues to help thousands of families with today’s teens.  During her crusade to help inform others, she became a victim, and now survivor, of Internet Defamation and Slander.  As with many people that have a voice to create change, you will have vocal enemies.  However, free speech does not condone defamation or slander.  After fighting back - a jury awarded Sue Scheff $11.3M verdict for damages.   

Sue Scheff has appeared on many media outlets including ABC News 20/20 i-Caught, CNN Anderson Cooper, The Rachael Ray Show, Lifetime Television,  CNN Headline News, Fox Morning News with Mike and Juliet, Fox News Tampabay, CBS News with Katie Couric, BBC, CBC Sunday News Magazine, Newsweek, Washington Post, Washington Times, USA Today, Miami Herald, Veja, Forbes, and many more both National and International.

Sue’s book - Wit’s End! is available at all book stores and online at Amazon. Published by Health Communications, Inc.

Google Bomb! is Sue's second book with co-author John Dozier and foreword by Michael Fertik. Published by Health Communications Inc.  When Revenge Becomes E-Venge - Take Cover with Google Bomb!
