Hi parents, My son is studying in eighth standard. He is 13 year old. Some of his friends are on facebook, he also wants to join. Is it the right age to let him have a facebook account? Please suggest.

Hi Swati, difficult decision to make. We have read in news papers about the disadvantages of social network sites. Teen tantrums and emotions might interpret status updates on wall differently. Also the clear picture of privacy settings may not be there. So sharing personal views openly might end up with problems. Maybe they can start with mail conversations. Then after 2 years may be u can allow him. There is a risk of other kids making fun of , addiction, demotivation, friendship break ups etc.
