I don't know if it is a good thing or bad, but this girl seems always behind the trend when it comes to social networking. Hooking into this virtual socialising is clearly not her thing at all, no matter how many times I encourage her. Occasionally, I have to really pushed her to respond to her friends who is trying to chat with her via Facebook. She is into gaming only, she spends hours and hours playing in her phone and installing as many apps she can find. Doodling, sketching or listening music. No wonder I get so many notifications in my itune account.
Anyway, the latest apps she likes is voxer which was newly introduced by her BFF's few weeks ago. So, hopefully this could be a beginning to something interesting for her to keep-up with her old mates. Ah, I shouldn't expect more, she is only 10 after all. But, she occasionally upload photos in her FB as well and to any other social networking that she is in. Like what Daddy said, just leave her to do whatever makes her happy. If social networking is not her thing then so be it. We don't want another computer addict in the family anyway ;-) and she'll surely get to it at some point. As of the moment, I am the one (if not Daddy) who's updating and using her FB account, blog and fan page, haha. Just so you all know...
hehe.. it's still good (or bad?) that she's in when it comes to techy gadgets. :)
that's funny because a lot of parents these days not even allowing their kids to use facebook for some reason that it could be a protection against unwanted things such as bullying or maybe some sex predators in their area. But you're a cool mom! for me, i would do the same thing. Because even on Facebook they can learn how to socialize and eventually make new friends. sometimes fb is a nice place to blurt out your sadness, boredom and joy.
I think that is a good thing though...as a parent, I don't want my kid to get expose in FB at a young age...it's not safe in my opinion...pero kung naa siguro parental guidance, oks ra man pod siguro.
as much as i want to, i would not let my children sign up for any social networking sites but if they insist thats fine for as long as they are open to us and they will allow us to access on their account so we can supervise what they're doing.
New generations likes to be online...My son oh well keep bugging me to use the computer...
Most moms, prohibit their children from using the social media. But you're different, you even encourage her. Well, we all have our own ways of raising our kids and I don't see anything wrong with this.
i don't want my kids to be on social networking site as much as i don't like my parents to sign-up on facebook! Just me is enough! haha
