As part of our class worship this morning, we completed our big debate on whether or not parents should be able to access their child’s social media accounts? We know that social media can have both a negative and positive impact on children. 
We also found that OFCOM completed a survey in 2020 which showed that 30% of children aged 5-7 years had a social media account!  
Reasons for ‘should’ were :
It could protect the child from danger
It can support with mental health if the child is struggling to deal with issues
It can correct negative behaviour ( the parent can intervene) 
Reasons for ‘shouldn’t’ included:
It’s invasion of privacy
They can learn their own way about e-safety 
There are other ways of checking on your child
Overall our class voted 22 people for their parents checking and only 5 opposed it.
