Periscope, Meerkat, and YouNow are live streaming apps where the user can gain followers and live chat.  While technology is moving forward and making our world a little bit smaller, it can also have serious consequences for children.

If you and your child decide to enable a live streaming app, there are a few things to first consider.

  • Be sure to set strict rules and adhere to those rules. Agree on the consequences and be open to communication.
  • Enable safety settings and disable locations services on all forms of social media.
  • Open a live streaming account yourself in order to keep an eye on your child.
  • When broadcasting, make sure to leave out any landmarks or identifiable locations.

Modern technology gives us the ability to connect with others around the globe and feel part of a community.  Using simple steps to play it safe will make our experience and our kids’ experience even better.
