If your kid is expressing interest in joining a social network, discuss the pros and cons and do your own research so you fully understand the implications of joining a particular network.If you want your kid to wait to sign up, consider pointing him or her toward more age-appropriate sites such as Yoursphere or Fanlala. It's also possible you can rally your kids' friends' parents to restrict their kids from Facebook, so you won't get that "but everyone is on it! If your kid does end up joining a social network -- whether she's 10 or 16 -- here are some ground rules that work for many parents: Use privacy settings.Also, some people on Instagram post some really offensive things.You should tell your kids colleges can see what you post.I think Youtube should be around 12 since some videos by some people are inappropriate and kids younger than that will just click.Instagram and Snapchat depends on what you want your kid to see. I don't have Twitter or Facebook but nobody I know has it (besides my parents). These are what I would recommend at the minimum age they're allowed.
They say that they are picked on at school, that they are ashamed when someone asks them what their account is and they have no answer.
It just isn’t how children are supposed to make bonds.
I implore you, parents, to make the right decision: don’t let your children get on social media.
(I could name more things but no one really cares so sorry I guess?? I do understand that people definitely mature with age but not everyone has to be 13 to be mature enough to use Instagram sensibly.
Also about things being inappropriate on Instagram yes some things are definitely inappropriate they’ll only show up for a small amount of time as long as you don’t look at it.
As for me, I am proud to say that I don’t have social media.
