Shame Nation: Online Shaming with Sue Scheff
5 days ago
Shame is defined as a painful emotion caused by consciousness of guilt, shortcoming, or impropriety. In the online world shaming has become a huge problem for adults and teens. According to a recent Pew Survey, 1 in 4 adults have experience online harassment. The White House and others have made it cool to shame and ridicule others online. For some parents online shaming has become a parenting tool to discipline teens for bad behavior. Although we have covered the topic of cyberbullying on numerous occasions on the Digital Parent Podcast, we wanted to cover the complex topic of online shaming on this episode. In order to give this topic it's proper due, we invited my friend and online shaming expert Sue Scheff to discuss online shaming and her new book Shame Nation that is flying off the shelves at Barnes and Noble. Sue Scheff is a nationally recognized author, Parent Advocate, and Family Internet Safety Expert. She has been featured on 20/20, The Rachel Ray Show, ABC News, Anderson Cooper, CBS Nightly News, Katie Courie, Dr. Phil, Canadian CBC Sunday News Magazine, CNN Headline News, Fox News, BBC Talk Radio, NPR, and others. On this episode of the Digital Parent Podcast Sue and I discuss the impact of online shaming, how the president creates a culture of shame, and strategies to prevent shaming. Here are some of the topics that Sue and I covered on the show. Click Here
