Safe on social media

Mon 6 Jan 2020 6:43pm

Hello, my son is 16 and is high functioning ASD. Like all teenagers he is keen to find a girlfriend. As it’s easier for him to talk online, he often approaches girls, mostly totally appropriately, but his judgement worries me. He’s kind, but might not be aware if he is coming across as too keen, or worst case a bit OTT or insistent! This worries me, but as a 50 year old parent I’m well aware that I’m out of touch with what kids do now online anyway.

I do talk openly with him, but understandably he wants privacy from interfering old parents!

Has anyone out there navigated their way through this tricky stage? It would be good to talk Smile
