School Children are young, their minds are innocent, and most of them do still lack judgement. Even if a child claims that he himself is ready to venture in the world of the internet, it will be most likely that they are not. Children are easily influenced by the outside world, strangers, and today's media. If we let out children become exposed to the dangers of social media, to be influenced and convinced by strangers who they never met; it may lead to very tragic events. We already have many problems in this age about our young youths, we should not let there be more.
Children can't escape any bulling and young children are resulting in taking there own lives because of no escape. Children and young adults need to be protected . It's too easy to target people and ruin children's lives, lots of children have mobiles so are constantly being bullied. Action needs to be taken we can't loose more lives .
This goes hand in hand with the use of computers and/or smartphones. Our kids are exposed to far more mature content than they are ready for. Especially when you consider how many elementary school children own their own iPhones and smartphones of all kinds. Is that really necessary? We might as well allow them to watch R rated movies along with the rest of us in the movie theaters. If you took a poll like this one and asked how many 7 year olds should be allowed to go watch R rated films, the results would surely be in favor of NOT allowing it. But now, with every freak and his dog on Facebook and Twitter, kids should also be allowed? I'm shocked!
Basically many social networks are really dangerous for everyone and especially kids because they are still growing and don't know how to be strong, and say no to something that they don't like. So social networks should totally not be in the whole world. It has committed suicide. So kids really have to be careful with that.
There are people who roam the internet and can take advantage of photos and comments online regarding a young child. Young children often don't know how to tell people to stop it, or that it is annoying them. Cyber-bullying and other bad things can go on for ages if the scared children are too frightened to speak up. Young children often aren't very aware of their digital footprint and do not know how permanent things are when you stick them online. Young children just don't understand the consequences of their actions and are too frightened to speak up if something bad happens on one of these social networks.
I believe most bullying, teenage suicide, and depression begin via online social networking sites. I think kids are taking advantage of this easy, convenient, and sometimes anonymous ways of hurting each other. I think there should be strict limitations on age and parental supervision and allowances involved in young youth cases.
Social media apps should be banned because they are the cause of bullying and 'sexting'. Teens and children are targeted by internet 'creeps' and can also be made fun of by peers. Many suicide cases have been disclosed over the years caused by these apps. The big problem is, most parents don't know their children and teens have these social medias.
There is no need to use social media for teaching basic educational concepts such as math, reading , social studies and science. They can get exposure to all the social media outside of school. School should be a place for basic educational preparation in academics and social development. Teachers already are burdened with standards to teach, parent conferences, extra daily duties; they do not need to add social media to their day.
How do you combat cyberbullying of minors? Stop it at its source- ban minors from accessing any form of social media until they're at least 18 years of age. This way, minors can't access social media and this prevents any cyberbullying. After they turn 18, the toughest of telecommunications harassment laws, making it a 1st degree felony, punishable by 5-15 years in prison and banishment from all social media for the convicts for the duration of their prison sentence as well as their probation/parole, needs to be passed.
Social networking should definitlety be banned.With so many hours spent in the academic activities,there is not much time for the kids to participate in the physical activities which is most essential for thier well being.The kind of culture we are getting into hinders the natural way of living like playing,participating in the household activities,interacting with parents,talking to grand parent's etc.,Also as they might get more contacts they will not how to balance in handling them
Since I am in high school, I should know that students will still be able to access these sites on their cell phones and from what I've seen, they do so against school rules anyway. So, why not kill two bird with one stone and allow this to be done ONLY during and for educational purpose and when its permitted by a teacher or staff.
No, it shouldn't be banned. I have recently used this page to write a report and I have found that even though there are many strong arguments saying it should be banned, the arguments on the No side are stronger. Social media can be harmful sometimes, but it is really very beneficial to a school student.

Let them talk with all their friends! I have an account and its not dangerous, plus there is always the option of private accounts. They wont get in any danger unless they go looking for it, they just want to share pictures with the world. There are not that many stalkers out there unless you look for them.
I don't think they should ban social networking sites for children because i think its good for children to talk to their friends and family especially if they are long distance.I'm a kid and i like Facebook because there are really good maths and spelling games for children so they should let children play them and shouldn't ban them
Social media create an environment that is free of judgement,every one is entitled to their opinion in social media and thus creating an open environment where students can share information from different people ,this creates a surrounding where students can communicate openly without fear of judgement ,therefore social medial should be allowed in schools.
We are in a free country and that means we have to the choice to do what we want to do. No one can stop us from using social networking sites as it is like i said a free country. We all have our rights and no one can prevented from doing so
Social media shouldn't be banned, because many people will use it and interact with each other. If social media was banned, there would be people arguing because there would be no chance of people trying to talk across the world. This is outrageous, social media should not be banned for this reason and other reasons.
Banning something doesn't make it go away no, social networking should not be banned for school children. If anything, it should be taught, along with the dangers that come with it. You can’t ban everything. Banning social networking would just make it that much more desirable. Social networking is a fact of life and is here to stay so we might as well acknowledge it and teach our children how to correctly and safely use it.
Because it is a very common way of contacting and communicating with our worldwide friends and families. People may use social networking sites to express who they are to the world, and that might make individuals feel really good about themselves. Social networking sites are very popular all over the world. Facebook has over 1.5 billion accounts. If Facebook was a country it would be the fifth biggest country in the world! And that's only Facebook!!
