I know, your thinking this lady is crazy if she thinks the government is going to make social media illegal for teens. But hey, a mom can always dream, right?!?! It would be so much easier if I could say sorry kids, you can not spend 4 hours today checking every status on every social media for all your 5,000 online friends because your not of legal age to do so! My life would be a piece of cake! I would be able to get the kiddos to actually help with all the chores with no arguing, homework would get done in record time and bedtime would be a breeze. Then I could take long bubble baths and catch up all my scrapbooking and dvr with a glass of wine and read the kindle………, oh sorry I was dreaming!
So even though I may not get my local governor to agree with me that my 14 and 11 year old should be legally banned from social media, I do have a few points as to why I think under age social media’ers is a bad idea…… and a few good ones!
