Setting content limits as well as time limits for kids on social media will give them a clearer mindset.
In today’s culture, there are so many social media outlets for our kids to interact on. Do you set guidelines for your kids on social media?
Putting Limitations On Our Kids Social Media Usage
How much time does your child spend on social media? Why do parents not only put time limits on social media but they work with their kids to determine which sites are age and/or content appropriate. When determining time limits, we should keep in mind that every moment our kids are engaging in social media with friends, they are sharing thoughts and ideas with the other kids that ultimately work to reinforce a juvenile mindset.
Kids need time spent with adults too, in order to assure they are getting a more mature perspective on the everyday realities of life. Time limits on social media can bring more opportunities for adult conversations, a windfall that might actually result in those conversations being with you.
