Committed: The Ties that Bond

with Angella Dykstra

I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.

Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.

Are You Setting Social Media Boundaries?

Last year, when my eldest child was ten, he told me that a number of his friends were on Facebook and he wanted an account. Hah. No.

The “legal” age for FB is 13, and we’ll wait until then. I did set him up an email account — which I have full access to — and last fall when he asked if he could have an Instagram account, I helped him set it up. He’s set to Private, so only people he’s approved can see his photos. If he gets a request from a name he doesn’t recognize, he’ll check with me, and it’s always one of my friends.

A few weeks ago my husband and I were away for a night and when we got home, our two younger children had created a joint Instagram account with the help of their older brother.

It’s a bit weird seeing my kids “like” my photos, but it’s more awesome than weird. I also love seeing which photos they take and choose to share with their friends and family. (They have a bunch of cousins who are also in IG ad I love seeing their interactions.)

FB is a few years away, yet, as it should be.

What social media boundaries do you set with your kids?
