That advice comes from Emily Hay, founder of Hay There Social Media. Her company works with kids and parents to show them how to use sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram safety and effectively. Hay suggests that parents consider signing a social media contract with their kids.
“So there are some very obvious things you would have in a contract,” said Hay. “Like Mom and Dad are going to be monitoring. Mom and Dad are the owners of this device. But there are also some specific things parents should let their kids know, such as don’t share photos of your siblings. Don’t share photos within our house. Things that may not be obvious to a child, but for their safety, Mom and Dad need to have them in that contract.”
