This post is part of a series of video conversations between CircleAround and our partners, the Boston Children’s Hospital and Center on Media and Child Health. The series is called Mondays with the Mediatricianand the focus of the series is on media and child health — specifically, how parents are navigating this challenging time of virtual learning and young children having access to online media.

Hosted by CircleAround writer Helena Goto and featuring Dr. Michael Rich, a.k.a. “The Mediatrician.” Dr. Rich is the director of the Center on Media and Child Health and a resident physician at the Boston Children’s Hospital. This episode, the third, covers how to present yourself authentically in a digital world. While social media can be a freeing place, it’s important to recognize the negative effects it may have, such as bullying. In this episode, Dr. Rich discusses how to recognize “othering” behavior or patterns, and provides tips to prevent bullying and othering in digital spaces.
