When should parents stop kids from using social media,& why cringe videos with any one is considered poplar?
AretoNyx: Tictoc, Musically, and other cringe contemplations often have kids. I have been seeing many perverts trying to get a sing along with preteens from what others on YouTube show. The discussion of banning apps like ticktock or wanting better security options.
Though YouTube is also a bit on a crack down of kid and teen user pages I hear. The thing about perverts is they are everywhere online. Those being criminal and immoral are clever at not getting caught while doing damage at times it seems. So is there any way to prevent harm as kidnapping, human trafficking, exploitation, etcetera of kids in any way truly?
The thing about what kids post and how they are exploited, or lack the common sense of privacy at times can be taught. Though why isn't such taught?
Stranger danger is not a good way to teach anything, and proven a joke based on social experiment to how ever kids understand what strangers are by definition.

Wonderful Wally: I think you should let your kids use sociol media as many kids use it as an outlet to express themselves without judgement. However I think you should teach your kids stranger danger and should stop behavior when they are doing something dangerous.
AretoNyx: Of course I taught my kids stranger danger, but I do more than what most offer in learning. Of course I monitor my kids on social media and in public. Not everyone watches kids or cares what they do online.
The thing about knowing if a kid is doing something dangerous often takes away some privacy , but if a parent is a responsible one they do make efforts to care.
avazoe: when i was a little kid my dad signed me up on a kids site that was monitored an safe an stuff. An it had a chat room. Before he let me use it he said he coud login an chat an tell ppl he was 8 yr old girl an chat about movies an stuff an nobody could tell he wastn really what he said.
then later he came back an he said i had 6 or 7 windows opne an i was in the chat room as 6 or 7 diffrent ppl, even a cpl boys names. He said i was makin my diffrent charactors argue about someting and then other real kids who were chattin were joining an takin sides.
He said that wastn really the lesson he tried to teach me but after that he didnt worry about me online or social media or deal w pervs or anyting.
AretoNyx: When I was a kid in chat rooms pwrvs were there on AOL even though it was supposed to be monitored kid only room. I expect if kids are to dumb about safety they shouldn't be online. Though many kids are online and many parents teach nothing.
Issue also is the gullible wrapped up in cults, extremism, psuedoscience harmful stuff, and human trafficking on any sort. Though that is more a world thing internet makes it haplen faster.
The good, bad, and ugly of the internet. Humans will do whatever even if the internet didn't exist.
Good that parets try to teach kids.
The giant midget: Parents are responsible for the safety of their children regardless if it's in social media or in real life , that's our duty
If you foresee that you won't be a good parent or even want to have kids . Just Don't please.
Buy a goldfish instead
Billie Ingle: then you know where I went through being misled as a child and that is why you best keep them away from social media
AretoNyx: Oh that drama. I understood weirdos like Onision way beforehand. There have been wierdos even before Onision and his buddies.
AretoNyx: For better or worse whatever apps to such I still think it good people can use such sources. Just be careful as much as possible no matter whom ( sex, gender, age, ect).
I don’t think kids will stop using social media or perverts will try to lure them in. I’ve seen enough documentaries and news stories to know the danger is real.
I think more can be done though on the side of the law. I remember a case with a mother doing all she could, even went to the police before things got out of hand but it wasn’t followed up.
So apart from parents having open communication with their kids and having restrictions (as no devices in the bedroom), the side of the law in tracking and charging these pervs might help more imo.
