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.
