Create with Kindness

National PTA + TikTok

National PTA has teamed up with TikTok to help parents and guardians learn more about how their teens are using this highly popular entertainment app, educate families about safety on the app, and guide parents in having open, ongoing conversations with their teens to ensure they are using online platforms productively and responsibly.

People use online platforms to: 

  • Share information or learn new skills
  • Express themselves creatively or share stories about themselves
  • Mobilize and activate around issues
  • Connect with others socially, professionally and spiritually
  • Find community and a sense of belonging
  • Be entertained


Create with Kindness Today!

When someone is kind online it makes others feel happy, hopeful and inspired to be kind too.

For PTAs


The Create with Kindness program, sponsored by TikTok, teaches teenagers and the adults in their lives how to:

  • Use platforms to spread kindness
  • Talk as a family about online experiences, behaviors, and expectations
  • Enable TikTok’s parental controls

Does your PTA want to host an interactive real-time Create with Kindness family program, either in-person or virtually? Do you want to give families the options for self-paced learning? Do you want to do both? Whatever format you choose, these Create with Kindness program resources can help your PTA plan, promote and host an experience that fosters family conversations about digital citizenships and inspires participants to choose kindness.

For Families


Before you create an account, we encourage you to check out these family resources, developed in collaboration with PTA and TikTok for our PTA Connected program, for an overview of what TikTok is and the safety tools and resources available to parents and teens to create age-appropriate experiences on the platform.

About TikTok

TikTok is the leading destination for short-form mobile video that enables people to express their creativity using a wide array of in-app creative tools.

From endearing toddlers with big attitudes to grandmas with hilarious one-liners, TikTok transcends generations and brings people together to create, have fun, and be entertained. TikTok is a source of joy and inspiration, and it helps people discover new ideas and learn new things, from art projects to science and history.
