My girls are 12 years old, according to facebook’s rules they are almost old enough for a facebook account.
While my girls don’t have facebook, since the start of the year they have had an account on another social media platform, and they use email and other services for school. Social media is becoming part of their lives.
I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about social media and the internet, and what my kids need to learn to navigate it all safely and happily, and apart from the usual safety guidelines there are some other things that I think are important for my kids to know.
