Children no longer have independence because of parents stalking them via social media, according to Jane Lunnon, Headteacher of Wimbledon High School.
Social platforms previously reserved for young people are now inundated by snooping parents and Lunnon worries this trend is stunting children’s independence.
Lunnon told the Telegraph: “Because of FaceTime, Snapchat, Skype, parents can be - if they want to - permanently overseeing the lives of their children and it's problematic."
Many parents use social media as a way of learning more about their children's lives, friends and what they're up to out of sight. But have you taken it too far and are you becoming a social media snooper?
