It is not recommended that your children use social networks without your supervision.
Nowadays, it may seem normal for our children to spend hours and hours on the internet, whether it is researching for their homework, playing online, or using social networks to interact with other people.
But make no mistake, although this seems normal, it is not recommended that your children use social networks without your supervision. Although created for positive purposes, social media can be a dangerous place for children.
First of all, it is not recommended that your children have social networks if they are very young. Let’s be honest: at that age, the only people they should interact with are their family and friends from school. When our children are on the Internet they are exposed to dangers that we cannot always detect. This becomes even worse when our children use various social networks without supervision.
An example of this is Tik Tok, a social network that President Donald Trump has targeted for alleged cases of espionage. To make matters worse, most of its users in the US are 13-15 years old on average. Also, there have been cases of child predators creating fake accounts to interact with children and gain their trust.
Be it Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, or TikTok. Although social networks have positive purposes and seek to encourage communication and interaction with other people, you must keep your children protected at all times.
