Tips On The Right Time To Let Children Have A Facebook Account

Most parents struggle with the idea of letting their kids browse freely on the internet. The growing amount of technology in the world today is vast, and most kids can work it better than many adults. Unfortunately, the internet can be a very dangerous place if you are not careful, and most kids are totally unaware of the dangers of the Internet. As parents it is your job to keep them safe and that applies to the internet as well. Social media platforms are very popular amongst people of all ages. There is Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter that have been very popular for a long time. Since they are so popular, they are very appealing for young adults to use. The big question ends up being, “How young is too young to have one of these social media accounts?” These platforms can expose your child too much to the Internet and the different people who occupy it. This video discusses how young is too young for a social media profile. This is very informative for any parent who is currently struggling with this decision, or maybe a parent who will soon go through it. Tara Kennedy Kline, a life coach, initiates the question if a viewer should let their daughter have a Facebook account. Facebook, as one of the most popular social media sites around, it is used for sharing photos, status updates, and communicating with friends. Kline claims that you should know the rules and terms of use for a site like Facebook and of course, be well informed about the age limit. You will still have to so dedicate your time to monitor how your child uses Facebook. She says to have it set up through your own email address so you can get the notifications from this Facebook account. This will make it so much easier to closely follow the profile. Another great tip that Kline offers is to be friends with your child on Facebook. If they are against the thought of you being their friend, they might be hiding something. This is a cause for concern because you might not know what they are up to on this site. It is very clear they do not want you to know what they are up to. If they do not agree to these conditions, then they can’t have a Facebook account. Everything that is posted online is never removed, so they must be careful and responsible with how they act online. Their actions could eventually affect future job positions or future education endeavors. It is a great idea to have a talk with your child and discuss what is appropriate and what isn’t appropriate for sharing online. The internet can be a very dangerous place, and the more information you disclose about yourself, the more dangerous it can become. Especially with kids who can be irresponsible and can become easy targets, it is important for them to be aware of situations like this one. Kline gives great tips that should be discussed and thought about within all families when considering this difficult question.

Distinguish Pre-Wedding Jitters From Wrong Choices2m29s

Distinguish Pre-Wedding Jitters From Wrong Choices

Everyone has at least a few second thoughts when they're getting married. But how do you know if your cold feet are pre-wedding jitters or something much more serious? Karin Anderson discusses if you need to take a deep breath or become a runaway bride. Weddings and marriage can be a super stressful part of life. This is a big step someone is taking and it definitely should not be something that one is rushed into. This is a person you will be spending the rest of your life with and you have to be fully committed to each other. Most marriages end because people didn’t seem to function well together once they got married. Obviously, they didn’t know each other the way they thought they did. If you want to avoid these mistakes, you better be sure that getting married is the right decision. This video discusses whether those pre-wedding feelings are just jitters or something bigger that you have to think about. Is this person the right person, or are you just really nervous, excited, scared, etc. Karin Anderson discusses the possibilities behind these feelings whether you are nervous with jitters or you are making a wrong decision. Karin Anderson has her PhD in psychology and studies humans very closely. Karin claims that it is very easy, especially for woman, to have envisioned their wedding day since they were young. If they played with dolls and set up nice weddings or dreamt of being princesses, this fantasy of a nice wedding is very common. It can be easy to get caught up in the moment, in the planning, and in the extravagance, that you might not consider their own feelings on the choice of spouse. After the wedding and the fun is over, you are actually married to this person for a long time so it better be the right choice! Lots of people get cold feet, but if these fear increases the more you think about it, then the problem should be seriously revised. This is a big life changing situation and should be well thought out. Karin poses some questions to ask yourself to see how committed you are to this marriage. “Am I more in love with getting married than being an actual spouse?”, “Am I getting married to avoid loneliness?”, or “Can you honor your vows?”. These are all big questions to ask yourself and depending on the answer, you can find out if you are in the right or wrong situation. These are pressures we put on ourselves to what the ideal marriage before a certain age is, or how to have the perfect wedding. These pressures can lead to wrong decisions, bad marriages, broken vows, and an unhappy life. Karin talks about the people she has spoken with about this topic and some of those people are runaway brides. Although in the moment, running away from your wedding is a big mistake since you should have thought all this through before that point. Even though they ran away, they avoided making a bigger mistake in jumping into the marriage not fully committed. Karin says these runaways are very happy with the decision they have made it saved them from future troubles. She says it is much better to cancel a wedding then live your life in a bad marriage or something you are not happy with!

Cyber Dating Expert Shares Tips On How To Avoid Catfishing 2m36s

Cyber Dating Expert Shares Tips On How To Avoid Catfishing

What's the biggest fear about online dating: people misrepresenting themselves. The scourge of catfishing has been all over the news but is it really that big of a problem? Cyber dating expert, Julie Spira, discusses this issue in detail. Nowadays, most people on the Internet are aware of what online dating or chatting means and what problems can come with it. Most of them are aware of the term catfishing as it has become a popular term on the Internet. It has become more popular as more stories have surfaced on national level and in popular shows discussing the whole concept of catfishing. You might have heart of the popular show, Catfish, which involves two man introducing different stories from people who think they are being catfished. Catfishing is the act of luring a person into chatting or a relationship using a fake persona online. This can include lying about your age, job, personality, and most commonly using other people’s photos! This has become very popular with online dating sites or chat forums. In this video, Julie Spira, a cyber dating expert, discusses what catfishing is and how to avoid it. The dating expert elaborates what being catfished is and how it happens. Most people probably have been catfished but probably don’t know it. People use an attractive picture to lure people in and start chatting. Obviously, this plan falls apart once a meetup happens and the person doesn’t appear the same as in their pictures. Spira claims that most people think about the possibility of being catfished but they are in love with the idea of being in love so they go along with these long-distance relationships. These people usually start off as pen pals from different sides of the country that would probably never meet. They are never really sure if the person they are talking to is actually the person they say they are. Scary! You can often tell if you are being catfished if the photos they send you seem unrealistic. If they use model type pictures or somewhat sensual pictures, this can be a sign that they might not be the person they say they are! A great way to solve this issue is to search the picture they used online. Google has a feature where you can use a picture and see how many other places it comes up on. If their photo is seen on different sites and has been circulating around the internet for quite some time, you are most likely being catfished! Another way to solve the catfish problem is to plan some kind of hangout such as a skype or facetime call. Obviously, you will be chatting live, chatting face to face, and there will be no way to fake how they look like. If many excuses are given as to why they can’t skype, you should be concerned! This also applies for in-person hangouts. If the person avoids to show up their face, they are most likely hiding something. Beware! This is one very informative video and will definitely come in handy especially if you are into online dating . It is always important to stay safe on the Internet and use all the necessary precautions when talking with strangers. Julie Spira gives you some great piece of advice that can help you avoid catfishing! Good luck!
