Adult chats and emails christian dating questions to ask before marriage
// While Amino is intended to be accessible for young users, it is still an online social community.
It is also intended to be used by adults, and on any such community, there is the potential for unscrupulous users to join with the intention to harass or take advantage of the youngest users.
I don't think that this app is as bad as what the other parents are saying, I use this app myself and I love it.
There are some communities that children shouldn't be in, but I think it should be fine as long as you monitor what communities your kids are in from time to time. If your kid likes metal that's great BUT don't let him/her be on Metal Amino.
I've heard stories of children being afraid to tell their parents about what they're dealing with because they don't want to get in trouble.
// One final warning- at the time of this writing, Amino Apps has recently introduced voice and video chat features.
My 12 year old son enjoyed chatting with others who he thought enjoyed similar interests and writing stories was slowly introduced to role play chats that moved into mature language and sexual content and was told to lie about his age and to hide this from his parents.
Make sure they know what sort of things to look out for.
I do not feel that some of these communities are safe or appropriate for a young teens.
Some of these communities can include gender and sexuality, self harm, creepypasta, slenderman, says not to get this app if your younger than eighteen so you get anyway its not the apps fault its like saying here child have this beer even though your to younger. ohhh this beer is bad for you lets go tell the beer company this!!!
Make sure they can recognize when someone they are speaking with is acting inappropriately.
Make extra sure that they know how to use the apps reporting and blocking features to disengage with users who are behaving badly.
