Adult chat non sexual
We do our best to educate and monitor their internet actions but I learned how easy it is for good kids to be targeted and slowly sucked into participating in a way that is not of their usual character. My daughter and her friends are obsessed with this app.I found my child in communities and role playing with strangers slowing progressing to sexual content.She feels that she NEEDS to be in this app and can't be with out it. Bullying, sexual content and the fact that you don't truly know the ages of the others you speak to in this app!! (Edit: I have added slashes between paragraphs, because the site does not support page breaks.After removing the app she finds ways to get back on secretly. Sorry about the wall of text, but I really believe the information I wrote is valuable.)// I see a lot of reviews of this app that seem very shocked and reactionary to me, and I would like to provide some clear, and hopefully helpful information.// If your child is interested in using this, I think you should let them, but ONLY after you coach them in internet safety.Make sure they know what sort of things to look out for.(And make sure that they know it is okay to do so- I often see a stigma against blocking that considers it cowardly or weak; make sure your child is not harmed by that rhetoric!) // And most of all, make it absolutely, totally clear that your child can ALWAYS come to you if they see something on the app that they don't know how to deal with!
If you trust your child to listen, I simply advise that you ask them not to use these features without you nearby.
// It may seem strange that I've rated the app so highly after spending several paragraphs talking about how dangerous it can be, but I do think it's perfectly capable of being a very positive outlet for creativity and social interaction.
As with any social media though, it must be treated with the utmost care.
It's full of bullies (who even bully autists), they respond with lenny faces & kys (Kill yourself) but they do much more terrible things.
The curators/leaders are bullies and the weird thing was that people love those bullies!
