Send to a Friend

Can you give me one good reason why a 10 year old girl should have a Facebook account?

No, I’m not looking for a good reason to let my daughter have an account. I’ve already adamantly told her no. I’d like to know why other parents are letting their 9 and 10 year old daughters have a Facebook account.

A few of my daughter’s friends and two of her cousins have had accounts since they were 9–10 years of age. One of her cousins is now 11 and there is already drama unfolding on her account. This can’t be good.

I am so thankful that all those notes I wrote on paper to friends when I was this age are long gone. I shudder at the thought that those words would be permanent if Facebook had been available to me.
