My son wants to join myLot
February 11, 2018 9:12am CST
My older child sees me using myLot all the time and asked what it was. I told him about the site and now he wants to join and use it. I haven't quite decided yet if I'll let him join but he has his own Facebook account. I wasn't sure if younger people would be allowed to use it or what a kid would have to talk about with a community of mostly adults, but I checked the site guidelines and faq and it said you can use it if you are 13 years and older. What do you think of non-adults posting and commenting on the site?

@LovelyxOdd had a cousin join once and he proceeded to contridict all i said. and even told things about one of my kids i did not want talked about. then .my oldest, grown daughter joined and got mad about some opinions of mine on my posts. then a friend joined and got upset about some things i said about one of her things with the baby that i meant no harm in saying, etc. glad they all quit. don't need that in the one place i can talk freely about things i believe. but it may be fine as long as you and your kid don't disagree on anything. reason i don't post much on FB because of these things with them

@bunnybon7 That is definitely something to look out for. I think I'd be fine with my son joining, he wouldn't be offended or be rude to me. But I was also thinking of telling my mom since I know she could use the money... but I think my mom might have a little too much to say on my posts that might get me upset.

Why not, 13 y.o. is not that young. In Facebook, he chats mostly with people whom he knows personally, right... So maybe check his inbox here from time to time to be sure no one does harm to him But I think everyone is good here

@LovelyxOdd I don't know what they are like over in the USA but here they are quite rubbish you can be answering questions for five to ten minutes obviously they are obtaining lots of information during that time and just when you think you are about to reach the end they say sorry your responses do not meet the criteria and dump you from the survey! I guess it will be a start for him to get used to this type of experience. Good luck to him at least he is showing willing!
I remember when I was busy writing at Bubblews, my eldest son wanted to join too, though he wasn't able to write and read yet. Then I told him to wait until he is older, but Bubblews closed down already. I think mylot is a good place for them to learn and maybe make some friends too.
