Instagram Security for Young Athletes: "Account Monitored by Parent" written in IG Bio.

Updated: Oct 31, 2019

When you open the internet

you allow every single person in the world

the opportunity to enter your home.

And there are a myriad of interntions among all those people.

You don't have to be a parent of a child athlete

to be an advocate for young people.

There is a assumed risk

of being a public figure

which is part of the entrance fee

into being famous (or talented).

As a First Measure, please write the following in the Bio of Instagram


"Acct. Monitored by Parent."

In Facebook Write it everywhere you can:

About, Home, Pin a Post to the top of the account.

And then make sure you monitor that account.

There will be a percentage that take that advice

but still don't monitor that account.

That's ok.

It is just one more step to reduce risk.

And open the dialogue with your child.

And listen.
