Many schools in Bengaluru have required parents to sign an undertaking that their children won’t be permitted to open or operate social media accounts.
Story so far: Schools have had a difficult time managing students who are very active on social media. There have been incidents where students have added teachers as “friends,” participated in group discussions, etc. Additionally, they make “reels” while wearing uniforms, which schools do not appreciate.
- Many parents are aware that their children are active on social media sites like Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, and other similar platforms, according to school authorities.
Parents to blame: Parents are to be held accountable for their children’s increased use of social media, according to school officials, who also claim that it is their duty to keep an eye on these activities. Inside the school, cell phones are not permitted. However, children have access to a variety of social media at home. Here, parents need to take responsibility and monitor.
