Are Your Kids Safely Using Social Media?

How to Keep Your Kids Safe on Social Media Sites

Today’s kids are more social media savvy than ever. More than 80 percent of teens online use some form social media, and they’re sharing more information than ever. While technology means that we can keep in touch and communicate effectively, it does pose new risks. A child’s misuse of a social network can turn into a serious problem. As a parent, you’ll want to keep your child safe online. Here are a few tips to help you do just that.

Set up the account for your child. Alongside your son or daughter, create a social media account. This way, you know the login details and you can verify there aren’t any inappropriate private messages.

Set the privacy settings. Check the privacy settings on your child’s social media account to restrict who can see their posts and who can add them as a friend.

Monitor who they friend. Talk to your child about who is appropriate for him or her to socialize with on social media. Be sure they only befriend people who you know in person and trust.

Talk to your kids about the consequences. Many kids don’t realize the serious implications of sharing information online. Talk to your child about how pictures, comments, and social interactions stay online once posted, and let them know to be mindful of this.

Set guidelines or rules. Limit how long your child can spend on social media during the week. You could also set specific times for you and your child to go on social media together and practice social media safety.
