kids and facebook


Picture courtesy of: facebookkids620.jpg

I created a FB account for my wee one last week and it made me think. He´s below the official FB age and I know that quite a few of you will now cry out “how could you”?
I did it because times move on, I would never have dreamed about letting my eldest join when he was so young. But kids nowadays grow up with FB and what not and unless we want them to be total outsiders, we have to make the most of a seemingly bad situation.

I regularly check his profile, check out his friends and make sure that he does not get involved with anything or anyone unjust. Additionally, his time spend on the computer is controlled.

It made me look at some of the other profiles, though. My nieces and nephews from UK are on FB, too. At times, no, correction, this is the ONLY way we can keep in touch or at least have some kind of inside into their life as we do not have any contact with their parents – sad, I know, but unfortunately true and inevitable.

My nieces are 18 and 14 and they have changed A LOT since I last saw them. They are grown up, far too much for their age actually. It appears to me that cocktail dresses and mega short skirts are the in thing where they live, the wee one has pictures online wearing extremely revealing dresses even when she was 12 or 13.
She has posted a video of her sister, sitting in bed (covered up by a quilt) singing funny songs, rapping, that sort of thing.

It worries me.

I do not think that such videos or pictures should be posted on the net, there are far too many weirdos out there and to top it all, most of the kids have their mobile numbers and e-mails openly on display on their wall.

Do other parents not check their kids activities on the net or, more precisely, on FB?
