Dr Tee Bee Chin, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Sunway Medical Centre
With increased access to the internet and smartphones, social media has become a normal part of everyday life for children and teenagers of this generation.

We speak to Dr Tee Bee Chin, consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist from Sunway Medical Centre to find out how parents can support their child’s use of social media and if it’s necessarily as bad as it seems.
