What to do when your teen wants to open a Facebook account H

Nokia could be helping you find your things, and a rumored iPhone 5C could stand for cheap. Or, even yummier, cookie.


Common Sense Media urges parents to emphasize to kids that the Internet is written with a permanent Sharpie, not pencil. Once a photo, or a comment, is out in cyberspace, there is no getting it back. Even if you take it down from Facebook, another kid could have forwarded it, Zintl said. There is no such thing as a real eraser button in social media, and that is an important reminder to share with kids over and over again.

Whether youre a novice or native on social media, the game changes when your teen asks to start using Facebook, Instagram, and the like. Here are some ways to make sure your kid stays safe online.


Moms and Dads cant assume teens know what they should and shouldnt share online. And just because children meet the minimum age requirement (for Facebook, its age 13), that doesnt mean they should rush to create an account. Colby Zintl of CommWhat to do when your teen wants to open a Facebook account Historyon Sense Media, a nonprofit mily and childrens advocacy group, said kids are probably better equipped to deal with the not-always-kid-friendly content and situations found on social networks when theyre 14 or 15.

The current generation of kids are growing up as digital natives, so theyre often comfortable with social media, but they still need to be careful. And thanks to proud parents and grandparents, their lives are probably well-documented. Said Zintl: Parents posting pictures of their babies starts a kids digital footprint for their entire life. Theyre creating a lifetime of photos and history online. copyright dedecms

Once everyones in agreement about when to get online, parents should show kids how to go about it. Walk them through the privacy settings. Show them how to unfriend people and delete posts. Make sure that only their friends can view their profile. copyright dedecms

Just ask my 2-year-old and 5-year-old who can frequently be found running around our house in nothing but their underwear. The tricky part for parents is sure that their sense of privacy has kicked in by the time they do log on to social networks for the first time.


Zintl suggested that parents activate the setting that allows kids to approve all posts before theyre added to their timeline. Talk to your child about the importance of that, Zintl said. It relates to the concept of a digital footprint -- everything is permanent. If a child is going to post on your childs wall, there should be some barrier to entry there.
