Where do you find parenting advice? If you're a millennial, it's likely you turn to social media. The Doctors share the findings from a recent survey in which 71% of millennials say social media helps them parent better. A third of moms and a half of dads say they use social media daily for parenting help and 90% found resources online really helps.
The Doctors acknowledge that the internet has become a source for everything, both good and bad! Gastroenterologist Dr. Jorge Rodriguez says the internet is a good resource as long as you don't solely rely on it, thinking it is going to make you a good parent. Experience is what counts.
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra notes for moms who years ago might have felt isolated and alone while up at night nursing, the internet and social media offers support and validation. However, it's the source that really matters. Some of them could be inaccurate and may actually lead to harm. Is the information from credible websites like the Mayo Clinic or WebMD or just somebody's random opinion? If in doubt, run it by your pediatrician or OB/GYN.
Proctologist Dr. David Rosenfeld, a father to three boys, notes the biggest thing is giving your kids encouragement, love and support. Don't choose to look at social media over spending time with your kids! "The number one parenting thing is to play with your kids and be with your kids. Spend time with them and let them know you love them!" Dr. Rosenfeld concludes.
