Loose Women published this video item, entitled “Should Children Be Banned From Social Media? Our Women Debate | Loose Women” – below is their description.
Staggering statistics have shown that at least 90% of teens aged 13-17 have used social media. So whether they’re updating their status on Facebook, uploading a selfie onto Instagram or trying out the newest TikTok trend, just how much control do you have over your child’s use of social media?Jane ensured a strict no phone policy until her daughter reached 12-years-old, but Christine thinks today’s teens are smarter than their devices and even their parents. And with the inquest into the suicide of Molly Russell hearing how she viewed thousands of harmful posts encouraging suicide and self-harm, whose responsibility is it to protect our children – the parents’ or the social media companies?
