Housecall for Heatlh

Sometimes life just seems like a popularity contests to kids, and the age of social media could only be reinforcing that, which experts say is not a good thing.

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports in today's "Housecall for Health":

For most teens, social media is an important part of their daily lives, but it can also be a source of anxiety.  Mental health consultant Stefanie Weiss tells FOX News Health it's a growing problem.

(Weiss) "I think kids base their self-worth today on how many followers they have."

She says parents need to warn teens about consequences of poor online choices, but most importantly, keep lines of communication open with kids about social accounts.
