What is COPPA
Parent Adherence to Terms of Service
In a recent parent workshop for parents of children in Grades PK to 5 that I led on Technology Throughout the Generations, parents were split over whether or not to let their children join a social media site, where the terms of service limit use to children over 13. Some parents spoke of peer pressure, where all their child’s friends were allowed social media accounts. Others shared their reasons for, and approaches to, allowing their child who is under 13 to use Instagram or Facebook.
