I don't have any kids so I am not worried. Nor do I want children, I just imagine myself having girls and that is not gravy I want on my mashed potatoes.
Hmm social media and kids == bullying. I think social media can actually be a good experience for kids and they need not be coddled so much. The biggest thing that kids need to realize is that everything they do can and will be traced back to them and that they are liable for the things they say. Just like their teachers etc. are becoming more and more liable for the things they say and pictures that are posted on these sites.
Why not just go out and play?
I'm not opposed to kids using the Internet and social networking sites so long as their parents teach them how to use it responsibly. Parents still need to think about the dangers kids can get into on the Internet and help educate their kids to avoid these things. Unfortunately, I feel like too many parents look the other way and aren't involved enough to know what their kids are doing online.
