Parents Digg Social Media

According to a new national survey by Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, MO, most parents have a positive view of social media’s impact on their children’s lives.

Of course, parents of younger children (ages 1-12) expressed more reservations about the dangers of social media than parents of older children (13-19).

My 5 1/2 year-old daughter has seen me perusing Facebook and has shown only a feigning interest.  Who knows when that will change?  When she starts Kindergarten in a few weeks?  Only time will tell and as of right now, I have no idea how I will answer the inevitable questions, “Dad, can I have a Facebook page?”
