Should parents allow their kids to join facebook before entering high school? If so, should they be trusting facebook's privacy settings in helping them stay safe?

Thanks and appreciate your feedback. Discussed this with both of my sisters and we all agreed that even 14 is not quite old enough for joining a widely used social media as FB.
Definitely. I'm glad to see you're reaching out too. The topic isn't often discussed because many parents are anxious to admit they don't know what to do. Heck, I won't even let my 16 year old nephew friend me on fb, cause I'm totally uncensored, lol
Good point on your last comment... even family members can be a surprisingly negative influence on kids without them even realizing it! Younger kids can see how their siblings, cousins, etc.. behave on FB and may mimic them because its "cool"...
Completely agree. FB can be like "television" with way too many inappropriate ads, posts, and comments being swung around so easily for kids to become influenced with.
