Adult Written by RickLee January 12, After making my own and playing around with the app for awhile I noticed how very similar it really is to every other social media. In conclusion, I think Snapchat is an app that should be rewarded if your child is responsible and mature because only a small percent of children really make inappropriate snapchats that can put their future ahead in danger.

November 5, New Snapchat Discover Stories regularly have sexually explicit images and articles -- not for kids!
We decided to let our oldest daughter 13 at the time have the popular app, Snapchat a year or so ago in the context of sending fun filtered videos and pictures to her trusted friends. However, the app has gone through many revisions since we first allowed it. It now has Discover Stories with pictures and links to articles which appear front and center when you open the app. For the past week or so, I have tried to look at these every day to see what these articles are promoting.
Many have steamy almost nude graphics which are visible before snapchatters click through. This is the norm, not the exception. And the article names are often sexually explicit -- "Celebs tell stories of how they lost their virginity," "4 Emojis for Steamy Sexting," "A Guide to Lady Parts for Guys," and more. One this past week was about orgies These explicit, often trashy articles and pictures have been present every single day I have looked.
Then decide what you feel is appropriate for you family. This title contains: Sexy stuff. Helped me decide 7. Had useful details 8. Read my mind 2.

Read my mind 6. Adult Written by hrkhamilton July 12, Appeals to deception and encourages media addiction, behind an innocent mask of funny photo filters! At first glance Snapchat is a really funny app in which users can take funny pictures of themselves and their pals using all the crazy filters.
And when we were first introduced to SC, thought all of that was amusing, innocent fun for our teenagers. But beyond that, there is just no good. The primary concern of parents The disappearing messages, I believe, were deed by the creators to cater to deceit. Even for good kids, the temptation to sneak and live a secret little life, can get the best of them, and overshadow their good intentions.
The friend coded emojis, trophies and the streak games encourage media addiction and popularity competition. Then there are the trophies, one of which we found was inappropriate snapchats sending a video snap between 4AM and 5AM. All this equals status, competition and addiction. With frequent monitoring, continual not just a one and done hit when they first get an open discussion with your. It's hard to pinpoint an age that it's appropriate for. I feel like teenagers ages are in a stage on their life where they crave approval, acceptance, and hence, are easily influenced by the world.
They fall prey to the dark side of what could otherwise be good, too easily. Our daughter has transitioned from being very transparent and honest with us, to being sneaky and deceptive as the social media influence crept into her life.
It is no different than a teenager inappropriate snapchats mixed up with a group of bad friends who dilute their once strong convictions. The problem is, social media makes it even inappropriate snapchats to get wrapped up in the bad influence. We really wish we would not have been so naive about Inappropriate snapchats from the start, but we didn't want to be TOO harsh, we didn't want to say no to everything. Well, we are now saying no until trust can be proven again and we will be using apps and programs for monitoring all device activity.
Parent Written by aedfaedfr January 20, Good Its is a great app I do not see why other people are saying that it is 'very inappropriate' when it is not. Your child has to be old enough, and all of my children use it appropriately. Helped me decide 1. Had useful details 3. Read my mind 8. Adult Written by ehoytlowrey December 15, Safety Concern Please monitor your child's on SnapChat. Anyone can add them as a friend and send them photos or messages.
Some children don't think about deleting or blocking because they don't want to be mean, and in today's age children think it's important to have as many "friends" as possible. Discuss your concerns with your child and let them know that it's more important to be safe than to be nice sometimes.

April 1, Its Really Not That Bad Dear parents considering Snapchat, Here are some common myths about Snapchat: The discover content is dirty: First of all, I have had snapchat for a while and rarely seen racy images or "stories", most of it is just people sharing their daily lives with the world. Random strangers can view my childs snaps or stories: To prevent this, simply turn on privacy settings and dont accept friend requests from people you dont know.
Snapchat is only used for sexting: This is probably the most misconcieved thing about Snapchat.
While some teenagers may use it for that purpose, just think about your child in particular. Are they trustworthy, honest, and respectful of themselves and others? If the answer is yes then you are good to go! All in all, Snapchat is a great way for kids and adults to communicate using fun filters, text, and images, and has minor concerns that should pretty much be overlooked if you have a responisble.

Adult Written by bruinim April 29, Why not just use a regular text app The whole premise of this app is to HIDE information from others, including parents! Why not use a regular texting app or one that automatically forwards all text to you. Say NO to Snapchat! This review system forces me to include an appropriate age for. I say that no kid should have it and there is no reason for adults to have it either.
Great App! As a mother of two children who both have snapchat, I will say that all parents should let their child have one if they want one! Read my mind 4. Parent Written by shauna3 July 12, It is predominately a sexting site. The images say they disappear but you can capture them - its not hard.
Why introduce something to your children or allow them to use it when inappropriate snapchats primary use is inappropriate? This needs to be screened. I attempted to write them, but because I did not have the users name it would not let me inappropriate snapchats feedback to Snapchat. I have deleted my app until this is fixed. Snapchat sneaks in sexually explicit content Years ago I approved this app for my kids before they had magazines, Now they have a magazine feature. Any time a person goes to the stories to see things their friends have posted they see several magazine covers.
Many of which are shockingly sexual. It is not possible to opt out of these magazines or to not see the covers if you go to the stories. The rating does not reflect how sexual these magazines have evolved to be. Adult Written by Miaaubrey May 1, Terrible This is a terrible app that if you have to use it should only be used by adults It's very abnoxuous and invasive. If you honestly feel the need to let everyone know your business and see clips of you all day Then this might be right for you. It doesn't matter what you send. But tht is wrong. People can save the pictures and it's putting that picture into the database.
It's not a good place to be especially if you are underage. Nudity underage is illegal It's not productive and not a good way to spend your time. In the past there was a news story on an underage kid who killed his friend and put a picture of the deseased body on his And every day I see on social media siteskids under the age of 18 asking for people to send nude pictures to eachother Especially strangersInappropriate snapchats
