However, if you spend any time on Instagram or Tumblr reading through the role-plays you will quickly see that the storylines more often than not include inappropriate words, graphics or plots including violence and/or graphic sex.Sadly, if your kids or teens are participating they probably are already interacting with strangers online. It is nearly impossible to tell online if a child is role-playing with another peer or if in fact the other role-player is a child predator acting as a peer to earn your child’s trust.), Everything bad about social medias can be found on metal amino & it's much more than on facebook,twitter etc. I was not happy with a few of the communities she was following.I do not feel that some of these communities are safe or appropriate for a young teens.It didn’t take me long to see what the problem is with Kik. It’s clear that some people blatantly use Kik to send and receive nude pictures. (Kik also includes an integrated web browser with easy access to inappropriate content for children).Given that there are many other free texting apps available, including i Message which is already included for i Pod touch, I don’t see a need for Kik on a child’s mobile device.The curators/leaders are bullies and the weird thing was that people love those bullies!
Remember, you don’t need a phone to use i Phone apps; if your child has an i Pod touch or an i Pad, they can install i Phone apps.They are loving the world wide window into your child’s life.No longer are the days where they have to tediously develop a relationship with you and your child to groom your child for sexual abuse (although that still happens).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. If your kid likes metal that's great BUT don't let him/her be on Metal Amino.It's full of bullies (who even bully autists), they respond with lenny faces & kys (Kill yourself) but they do much more terrible things.
