Amid the escalating violence in the Middle East, schools across the country have expressed concern that social media platforms have become inundated with graphic imagery of war and torture. Recent reports from prominent news outlets have highlighted the necessity of protecting children from the deluge of violent content that may not be detected by parental or platform controls and filters. In light of these developments and the ongoing research on the negative effects of social media on children, Catholic schools are urged to proactively engage with families about students’ unsupervised use of and access to social media.
