10 Accounts your child should NOT be following!

Have you ever taken a look at some of the accounts your child follows on Instagram? You should! There are very limited regulations about what is allowed to be posted on Instagram, and many celebrities and brands are notorious for pushing the boundaries, publishing photos that are overly sexualised or inappropriate for a younger audience. Most of these celebrities/brands, as well as Instagram itself, justify the publication of this content due to the fact that Instagram is only for users of the age of 13, however this is quite often not the case, with repeated surveys finding children as young as SEVEN with Instagram accounts. Take a look at some of these accounts that are popular with tweens, and find out how easily your child is exposed to explicit content on Instagram.

    Instagram is so foreign to many parents! But the thing with who they can follow is questionable? Can’t they just follow these pics on the internet anyways? But interesting you have brought this up – perhaps the question we need to ask parents is have they informed their kids of what’s right or wrong and what is considered appropriate behaviour online? It’s hard to ague with your teen about following Miley Cyrus mostly because they love her as Hannah Montana! But the angle is of this piece is definitely worthy of attention and worth talking about!! Great work as always, a-go-to site for all Instagram questions, tips and advice!!
