She shared a sad picture of herself on Instagram with the caption, “I recently watched very important documentary on Social media dangers and its impact on childhood. I was mind blown. Every parent, child, teacher, grand parent should watch. It is for free on Youtube and it’s name is Childhood 2.0.”

“Please lets talk about this more and be more aware: anxiety, depression, suicides are so common among kids as young as 10 thanks to horrible trend of judgment, bullying, sexting which is living thanks to social media. While we are protecting our kids from dangers that we think are outside, on the streets, we are failing to realise how serious danger is within our homes.”

According to Jelena, there isn’t a single answer to this predicament. There is the need for engagement with children and willingness to listen to them. She urged every parent to stand up for their kids and suggested communicating with them.

Jelena also tweeted the link of the documentary, which warned her about the dangers of social media and encouraged people to watch it.
