Although social media has its disadvantages, There are its advantages such as the fact that it gives children the ability to socialize and grows their confidence. Having social media allows children to interact with their peers and see how they’re getting on outside of school. This may encourage the child to also try to pick up new skills in the same way their peers are. More shy children could direct message their friends so that nobody would interrupt them when they are having a conversation, This would build up the shy child’s confidence and be able to be around more people. I suggest that children are allowed to use social media, However, With the supervision of an adult. There can be times when things may get out of hand so if you decide to have your child use social media, Monitor their activity to keep them safe.
There is social media meant for kids under 13( ie. Messenger kids. ) These parents are legally lying about their ages. On Instagram, People have the right to shut down their accounts if they see that the kid is under 13. Yes, Kids have it but kids have better things they could be spending their time on than social media.
