The internet is largely unregulated, with social media platforms targeting and coercing children to use their sites. As parents, how can you manage and control your children’s online activity to ensure their safety?
Joe Miller urges parents to conduct in-depth research into popular sites and platforms to ensure they are appropriate for use. It’s also crucial to recognize the peer pressure that accompanies social media usage, so you can establish the proper boundaries. By familiarizing yourself with each application’s parental controls, you can protect your children’s data and monitor their media consumption.
