Do your kids have a facebook account? How old are they?

I know a couple people that their 8 year olds have one and they had once since 5, but I am not sure yet, but my oldest just turned 8 and she has been asking me for an account. But I was thinking just not for sure yet. If I do it would be just the young kids that I know that has them and family and her account and pics would be set to private of course and I would monitor it, but she wants it mostly for the games she sees me play only I want let her play them because and example is candy crush....well you want to be the one to unlock your next level lol. What do you think?

  • No. They are 12 and 13. Facebook isn't cool anymore!

  • If it's set to private, maybe. My teenage stepson has one, but I'd be happier if he didn't because he sometimes gets careless about posting things that upset relatives in another state or that give out too much personal info. A regular teenager would probably be fine--my stepson has special needs--but at eight, I wouldn't have considered it unless there was a way that only family could see it and it didn't have all those gambling game ads on it.

  • No and they are 8 and 2 but I do have a family member that allows her kids that are (13,8.5,3) and I know for a fact the older 3 have accounts.

  • I let my oldest get an account when he was 10. I have the password, and I monitor it every day, deleting things his friends post that are inappropriate. It's set to private.

  • My son is 10 and has not showed an interest in FB. He also said he does not have any friends who have an account.

  • My son was 11. It was closely monitored. Now he is 18 and only uses twitter.

    Answer by mompam at 9:28 PM on Jun. 7, 2013

  • No. One is almost 8 and the other is 10. I think I will discourage them from using FB or Twitter, or any of the other little snipe sites.
