Ok, so I'm hanging out with ss12 and sd8, whom I love dearly, and one is on the PS4 (and has been literally 24/7 the ENTIRE time he's here) and the youngest on her cell. On her phone, I'm watching a girl in their class apparently that has "gone live" and is video taping herself while others type in and asks questions, comments, etc. in real time! And this is all over the internet. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it other than old. My DH (their dad) and I just had a baby (my first). I know i don't want her doing that, or anything on the internet for that matter, unless we talk about it first, and EVERYTHING she wants to post/sign-up for/download/whatever is ran through me (of that's even realiatic). Btw, i should add that my DH is totally oblivious to social media nor doesn't really seem to care about it. Therefore, it's not monitored or regulated when they are here on the weekends.
I'm curious to know what are your boundaries/rules when it comes to social media? If you had a sit-down with your child/ren, what did that sound like? Also, how often do you check their phone without them feeling like you're invading their privacy?
For the record, I'm asking for my BD5mths, not my ss and sd. I feel that's btwn the parents, not my battle to pick. Plus, they can keep me in the know..lol
Thank you for reading this, and I appreciate your thoughts.
