If your children are just on the edge of getting their own devices or have started sharing online, Emma Vanstone, social media savvy Mum of three, outlines key questions she asks her children to answer before sharing online.
Questions that children should consider before sharing online
My children ( 9, 8 and 6 ) don’t yet have their own social media accounts, but my two eldest do have access to a school based system where they can send friends photos and leave messages and also have their own blogs online. We’ve talked extensively about what should and should not be shared online, and have agreed that before they post anything they ask themselves the following:
Is it something I am happy for my friends to read?
Is it about any one other than me?
Would Mum/Dad/School approve?
