Mini series: When life hurts

Det er ikke nemt at vokse op. Det ene øjeblik kan man være jublende lykkelig. Det næste er man klar til at forlade denne jord for evigt. I mine samtaler med børn og unge, er behovet for støtte og vejledning enormt.

Som digital pædagog, med benene solidt placeret i de sociale medier, er det mig de unge brugere ofte kommer til. Overvindelsen ved at snakke med de nære voksne kan være stor.
‘Min mor/ far forstår mig ikke’. ‘Jeg vil ikke gøre dem kede af det’. ‘Jeg ved ikke, hvordan jeg skal sige det’.

TikTok and Instagram henvender det unge publikum sig til mig for at læsse af. En invitation jeg altid giver, i håb om at nå dem før de rammer en afgrund. Noget jeg desværre har set mange gange. Med den kontakt kan jeg hjælpe de unge med at få modet til, at kontakte en primær voksen. Om det er forældre, onkler/ tanter, lærere eller pædagoger.

I arbejdet med at hjælpe de unge. har jeg skabt 6 små videoer om det de oftest har brug for at snakke om. Den kan også ses på YouTube.

Digital presence and pedagogy - at eye level

A dull October afternoon at a hotel in 2019 I took the jump from theory to practice. Since then, time has raced by, and TikTok has become one of my most important work tools, as well as playground.

Although my birth certificate is dated 1979, there is room and justification for someone like me on TikTok. Hundreds of inquiries from children and young people has shown that. As an authentic and open adult who participates out of desire and passion, rather than necessity, I tapped into a part of the lives of child and youth that few adults are allowed to participate in.

Too many young people are alone on social media and too many of them will not seek out their primary adults when things happen. This is where I, with information and guidance via digital communication, step in. Since the start-up of my English Channel in October 2019 and then my Danish channel in January 2020, I have communicated daily with the young users about everything from the technology behind the media, to bullying, suicide and rape. 

There is a lack of adults on social media, and via TikTok I have ended up as the link between the digital life and the young users' primary adults. It is easier to talk to the woman you 'know' from TikTok. The one who doesn't take away your social medias, or scolds you because she gets startled.
