    I work in this space and can only recommend that social media be limited until they are old enough to understand it.

    When my kids are finally allowed accounts, I will do the same. Tell them I need their password, and that I'll be checking it regularly.

    I think giving an under 13 a Facebook account is irresponsible. Don't even get me started on the social pressures, weirdo's and bullying. What lesson are you teaching a kid when Facebook says they can't have an account until 13, yet you let them sneak one earlier?

    As for my kids.... Sometime after they are 13. Computer use will be in a family area/I will know the passwords until they are around 16.

    I don't even plan on telling my kids the password to their fb in early teens. I will be logging them on and off so they don't do stupid things. I won't be allowing it until some time after they're 13.

    I have a question for all those that say they will have the password. If your child sets up the account with you and gives you the password then after say a week/month or whatever they secretly change the password what can you do? you can't delete the account without the password and you can't force them to give you the password (thinking of myself as a teenager) what would you do? Chances are they can still access their facebook at school or on their phones.

    Ummm... Take their smart phone off them and don't let them use the home computer. Or not give them the password to start with.

    The big thing these days is to have two accounts, a clean one parents know about and one they use with friends.

    You can never protect 100% but this is why I would have them use a computer in a family living area. And I don't think I would allow a smart phone at 13.

    They will have access at school though - every high school kid I know has to take an iPad to school

    My DS is only 3 but I hope that I can teach him how to use it responsibly when the time comes ( I don't have a Facebook account and always maintain I'll get one when DS does !) and I know the school also has social media policies and rules in place so hoping that will also help
