A facebook, twitter, email or instagram?

My daughter has a Facebook & Instagram. But, she puts it on private & chooses wisely when someone friends her. I check every once in awhile to check it.

They do not have a facebook, due to not being 13 yrs old yet.

And they have an email(comcast) but never ask to use it. Until then it sits there for the day they ask.

Twitter is no no as well. And no idea what instagram is.

Instagram is an app that you posts pictures on & follow people. It actually very fun! But, it's only for Androids & iPhones.

In that case, guess I should inform my oldest(10 yr old) he isn't allowed to have that either.

No reason to give people a reason to stalk him and or have potential kidnappers.

She puts her account on private. Also, I have one too so I check hers out every once in a while. So, I don't need to worry. (:

 My oldest has a facebook...and it is set on private everything....I approve her friends and have deleted a lot of them. I am the one that posts pics on her account.

Ds (12) uses an old email account of mine but only during football season as he's in our family fantasy football league. No to the others.

No.  My oldest is only 10. She does not need any of that.

nope, because, per their legal guidelines, my children don't meet the age requirements....what's the point in breaking the law when the kids see their friends evvery day at school, etc.?

My 16 & 17yo's have all of the above. I ocassionally check them but have never seen a problem.

My 11 yr. daughter has an instagram.  I check it once and a while.

NOPE! They are not legally old enough. Not teaching law breaking early.
