It seems like the time for raising children has never been so delicate. The times have definitely changed and things that were normal for our childhood, might not be normal now. And, of course, there is also Internet. There are no boundaries and almost every child has a direct approach to technology and Internet. That’s why we have decided to dedicate today’s article about children blogging. Read everything you should know about it as a parent and how to protect your child online.
Be sure in one thing: children always have something to say. I find that to be one of their best qualities. The point of view about any situation through eyes of the children is priceless and should be appreciated. Expressing opinions and open minded way of thinking in kids age can be promising in their development.
These are just some of the reasons why you should allow your child to write a blog:
What’s important about children blogging is to encourage your kids not to be afraid to express what’s on their mind. In writing blogs they should be theirselves, authentic, write what’s on their hearts and what’s most important, have fun.
Some children might be afraid that no one will read their blog. If you as an adult are part of some social network, you can post or tweet about your child’s blog and in that way help him or her gain some confidence, especially if you share it with friends who have kids too.
It may all look innocent and sweet, but kids should be supervised on Internet by their parents. They are not aware of the danger and have a tendency to give their trust to anyone. This is the part where you, in your role as a parent, should be strong and protective towards your child.
If you notice that your child is acting secretly and mysteriously, it’s time to check what’s going on. If you find out that your child is writing a blog without your approval, with too revealing content, remember you are always within your right to say “No”. Don’t get distracted by nagging and promises of how “it will never happen again“. If you set up the rules about blogging, make sure kids are following them. It is better to be safe than sorry.
