How to Protect Your Kids From the Sarahah App [VIDEO]
The latest social media craze is causing concern among parents, but we've seen this before and know exactly how to deal with it.
Sarahah is an app that allows its users to receive anonymous messages from people and was allegedly designed to be a kind of digital suggestion box for "constructive criticism" in the workplace. But, you know how millennials and gen z-ers are. It's now used mostly to fish for anonymous compliments to post as a humblebrag on social media, to get hit on by people too scared to tell how they feel to your face, or for bullying. Great, that's just what we need.
As the parent of a tween, these types of apps do concern me greatly. This opens a door for other kids to say things that are as nasty or as mean as they can imagine, without having to identify themselves. It's a parent's worst nightmare, basically. Luckily for you, we've seen this before, and know just how to deal with it.
A few years back, there was an app called AfterSchool, which caused a similar uproar among parents. Really, any anonymous messaging platform that kids can get their hands on is going to cause more problems than it's worth. Period. While you can't post images to Sarahah like you could on AfterSchool, I think our previous method of protecting your kid from it will work here too. Just follow my advice in the video below, and your kids will be off that app in no time!
