Parents & Pre-Teens New Digital Dilemma: Is it safe to set up an e-mail account?
In our humble opinion, we strongly discourage pre-teens from setting up e-mail accounts! However, there are parents out there that feel the complete opposite. in other words, they do allow their children to set-up personal email accounts. Although the majority of the online community is not filled with hackers, haters, and hecklers. You still have to be extremely mindful of potential digital predators.
We understand that many parents want their children to be effective digital communicators. However, Is there a cost to suppressing overriding this pre-teen new digital dilemma?
when setting up an email account for your tween you need to be certain you set up a forwarding option so that every single email of your child is forwarded to your inbox. You may inform your child as well so that she/he knows that every email is checked by you.
Remind your child never to share their email address on the internet with anyone. Share with them the potential consequence that may arrive when they share their email address with companies.
