A thought on Facebook for teens

For those of you debating on whether to let your teen have a Facebook account, please don’t just consider your child’s age. Consider your child as a whole. Are they mentally and emotionally ready for the type of exposure that will get on Facebook? The teenage years are hard enough already offline. You should consider how much complicated it will become with them online as well. It should not be a blanket “yes” for all teens just because they are old enough. As you know from adults, age is nothing but a number. And a person doesn’t automatically matures when the clock strikes midnight on their birthday. Just some food for thought for all the parents.
