“The Phrase ‘Look at My Sound’ Is a Sexual Hint for TikTok Users In the Know”
I call my training the, “you don’t know what you don’t know” training. There is so much out there in the digital world to keep up with it feels like an impossible and overwhelming task. My mission is to break it down and bring you quality information that you can use as a parent, teacher, counselor or other adult invested in a childs life.
I believe that the misconception about TikTok is that it’s just an app where people dance and share funny or fun videos. While this is true, there is a dark underbelly of sexualized content on TikTok. I discuss this at every training I do. Overall, people leave my training saying “I just didn’t know that about TikTok”. There is no fault in not knowing everything about social media and the latest trends. That would be an impossible task. But I do encourage you to become familiar with the technologies that your child, student or client uses so that you can have a reference point from which to teach and set expectations.
