Parents & Social Media

Home » News » Parents & Social Media

The Methodist Church have developed guidelines for parents to inform them about safe use of social media and to minimise the risk to children and young people. They strongly recommend that parents read through the relevant guidance with their sons and daughters. They have guidance specifically aimed at children aged 5-11 and for young people aged 11 and over. All these documents can be accessed online.
The guidelines say, "We recognise that for some parents the use of social media can seem a bit daunting and you may feel that your child knows more than you do. However we would encourage you to learn as much as you can. Show an interest in what your children are doing online and ask them to teach you what they know."
