Social media influencers are now some of the world's biggest stars, and it's not surprising that many kids now say they want to grow up to be YouTube stars. The Doctors welcome 14-year-old social media influencer Gigi Cesare to discuss how parents can keep kids safe while sharing their lives online.
Gigi says she has made “mistakes” with social media and recounts once sharing her location with her followers. She says her location was then shared online and she felt “exposed.” Looking back, she realizes she not only put herself in danger but also her family.
Gigi's tips for staying safe on social media include:
- Not sharing your location
- Keeping your accounts private
- Not sharing personal details like your full name, last name or, email or phone number
Marriage and family therapist Kiaundra Jackson also joins the conversation and expresses concern that using social media excessively or sharing most aspects of one's life could be robbing young people of many important areas of development.
"Is this the new form of pimping our children out?" Kiaundra wonders, suggesting that parents should be conscious about how much their children are putting on social media and what details are revealed.
The Doctors note that child actors have rules and laws in place regarding how many hours they work and also not these limitations and protections are not required for young social media stars and influencers. The panel acknowledges that social media can be very beneficial when it comes to things like sharing knowledge and a mode of expressing creativity.
If your child does express interest in pursuing a career as a social media influencer, Kiaundra suggests having a candid and light conversation about why they want to pursue this field and if you do create an account for them, to have boundaries and limitations on it.
