Hashtags to be aware of if you have teens:

For parents, hashtags can provide valuable insight into your teen’s world. 

Some popular hashtags are light and fun expressions like #yolo (you only live once). Others can be alarming and allude to troubling teen behavior like sex, bullying or depression. These hashtags are often used as a way for teens to share dangerous behaviors and keep their actions hidden from adults. Here are the top 10 hashtags you should know as a parent:

  • #netflixandchill – inviting someone over for sex
  • #yag – you are gay, often used for bullying
  • #gokillyourself – often used for bullying
  • #lmirl – let’s meet in real life
  • #cuts – cutting or self-harming
  • #selfharmmm – self-harming like cutting or burning
  • #sue – suicide
  • #thinspiration – may be used to talk about eating disorders
  • #livingdangerously – can sometimes describe unsafe behavior
  • #420 – marijuana, which can also be represented by the maple leaf emoji, any of the green leaf or tree emojis, the pineapple (a reference to stoner flick Pineapple Express), and the green check mark, as in "Yes, I have or can get some.

  •  #deb for "depression"
  • #ana for "anorexic"
  • #mia for "bulimia"
  • #ednos for "eating disorder not otherwise specified"
  • #thinsp for "thinspo" or "thinspiration"
  • #borderline for "borderline personality disorder"
  • #svv for "selbstverletzendes verhalten" or self-harming behavior
  • #secretsociety123 for a community of people who engage in NSSH, 
  • or non-suicidal self harm
