Kids as young as middle-school age are now organizing parties through Instagram by creating new, private accounts that parents won’t detect. A new account name might be something along the lines of “BirthdayBash2019!” and it’ll contain information would-be party-goers need to know—that is if they’re invited to the party account. (If the party account follows you back, that means the host really wants you to come.) At times, the parties don’t even come to fruition because of poor planning or because the hosts were using the party account only to gain more followers for their own accounts.
Our Take on Instagram Party Accounts
Kids today usually know more than their parents and teachers about technology and social media hacks. So when they want to get around adults’ restrictions, their creative attempts show up in unexpected ways. When children become sneaky like this, it’s primarily a heart problem. Children’s ministers can encourage open lines of communication with preteens and parents and can strive to develop trust-based relationships. Also, urge parents to keep a close watch on how kids spend their time online.
