I have a well behaved, very bright, tech savvy 15 year old daughter. Her mother and I have discussed the risks and dangers of social media and online interactions, and have set clear guidelines and expectations for her tech use and online behavior. However, it turns out she has created multiple Google accounts (and borrowed one from an older friend) in order to circumvent our oversight, and she has been accessing sites and apps (mostly chat and photo sharing related) which we deem to be unsafe and therefore out of bounds.
Is there a way to prevent her from creating multiple Google accounts so we can maintain oversight and guidance?
I realize that soon she will be old enough to call the shots, but I want to do what I can to keep her safe, educate her, and help her make good decisions. So simply taking away all tech is not a viable solution. (And the sad thing is that while her personal phone is locked down, she has been able to access these sites and apps on her school iPad!)
So I figure if we at least keep her from creating multiple accounts, we can stay on top of any other online accounts she may try to sign up for, sites she visits, and apps she uses.
