    A wider issue is the extent of exposure to screens at the exclusion of the real world especially in the first 100 days. Some parents are extending "social" to mean using devices as a distraction, baby sitter, or pacifier for very young children. There is some research that warns that this is potentially causing long term damage.
    see: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/behind-online-behavior/201604/what-screen-time-can-really-do-kids-brains
    for example. The tips have to include alerting parents of young children (under 3) of this risk.

    Great article with excellent points. My sons are 12 years old and I am very wary of them becoming social. While there are great benefits there are still many dangers and cause for concern. Thus, the need for supervision, which a teenager does not want. The best option is to teach them right from wrong and how to assess situations to make the morally right and ethical decsions.

    An addition to your article though are the parents who create profiles for their children and chronicle their lives on social media. I think this is wrong and is a violation of the child's rights. What if later in life the child is embarrassed by some of these posts? Parents who do this must consider what and how they are posting about their child.

    This is a post every parent should read. The benefits of the internet for children can be amazing in helping them grow, but the dark side can set a young mind back permanently. Also, the internet should not be a child's sole communication with the outside world. Children need face to face contact in order to grow healthy relationships.

    So encouraged to see your post @Juan Imaz, Thank you for doing such a great job writing about the big, and complex, picture. I echo the comments of your readers, this is a very important discussion and one that needs to go on on a regular basis throughout the various mediums. My contribution to the discussion would be to say something I just read in an article about this topic; let the children live as long as they can in the real world before they go on to the virtual one. And I would like to see 16 as the age of starting to form a profile on-line.

    @Susan Rooks , @Juan Imaz I suggest you google the following
    I can't walk yet but I know how to work an iPad.
    It's an article from today's Times Magazine.
    It covers many of the issues raised so far and most of the points I wanted to make.
    Particularly around the issues of what constitutes addiction.
    From " Kids have basically been carrying around a portable dopamine pump for 10 years, to an interesting comparison of the effect of screen time to eating time.
    I like the final two sentences.
    "You can only do your best. There's always going to be something."
    As parents don't we know it.

    @Juan Imaz, this is obviously an incredibly important issue. I'm part of that 36% in your graphic that thinks the appropriate age is around 15 (depending on the kid, to some extent). I get that younger kids have peers who may be allowed more freedom, and that's where I also think parents need to be watchful. Parents may be careful in their own home, but what happens when their kids sleep over at a friend's house? Just go over to play? Have the parents had conversations with other parents on this? I sure hope so!

    @Juan Imaz well said. And good suggestion mentioned for "caretakers, guardians and as well as for parents" by @Matt 🐝 Sweetwood. During March 2011, at an event in Scarborough I got an opportunity to interact with Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and spent some time sharing about aspects of merits and demerits of children's online and usage of devices (yeah prior few of us as freelance volunteered during 2005/2006 shared awareness about such in a different global locale). Also at the same time had shared opinion about focusing on LinkedIn as tool for HR. And got to interact for a minute with John Tory (now present mayor of Toronto) was also present at that event. Later thrice got to meet for some reasons. (If by chance some might have seen friendly tweets exchange during 2013/2014).

    Thank you @Juan Imaz for sharing one of the most important topics, not "trendy" but more as the trend for the next decade, with the increasing number of smartphone users.
    Well done !
    At all steps, children need guidelines, and more so in this digital age very competitive. Lowering the stress level digitally will help them focus on more important tasks in their daily life.

    @Rafael García Romano and I were just talking about this topic during the coffee break today. At 10 they are too young to have their own presence in a social network and, on the other hand, they are 'big enough' to be accompanied by their parents in the path of learning how to use it. This was the advice I received in a talk by an expert in solving conflicts and problems with teenagers. This expert said that it was much better to teach children on social networks at 10 than to wait until they are 14, because they will not follow their parents' advice at this age and they will be taking their own decisions about what to share.
