Parents must control their child’s activity on social media against explicit sexual behaviors and sexting. Any such behavior on social media that evokes unflattering responses may damage self-esteem and disturb your child’s mental health. However, trust and privacy are the two significant factors that justify the non-monitoring of the social media activity of your child.
According to statistics, 84% of teens use social media, while 62% of teens use social media every day with an average of 1 hour and 47 minutes of scrolling.
Another study suggests that 37% of adolescents aged between 12 and 17 years are bullied at least once on social media. Considering this exuberant number, every parent needs to be vigilant about their child’s activity on social media.
