Screen Addiction

 

As I'm sure you are all aware our children are of a technological generation. That being said it is easier than ever for them to get online and connect with all sorts or people all over the world.

Do you know which sites your children use? Do you know who is on their friends list? Do you know what they post? As loving parents of course you do but that is no reason not to check!

The age restriction for the different platforms are as follows:

 

  • Youtube         18 or 13 with parental permission. 
  • Whatsapp       16
  • Twitter           13
  • Facebook       13
  • Snapchat        13
  • Instagram      13 
  • Fortnite          12
