Parents: Your Kids are Watching War on TikTok — Experts Urge Parents to Disable Kids’ Social Media Amid Israeli Crisis

The head of a school in New Jersey wrote: “Together with other Jewish day schools, we are warning parents to disable social media apps such as Instagram, X, and Tiktok from their children’s phones. Graphic and often misleading information is flowing freely, augmenting the fears of our students…Parents should discuss the dangers of these platforms and ask their children on a daily basis about what they are seeing, even if they have deleted the most unfiltered apps from their phones.”

It’s a sad but true fact that the algorithms of our most popular social media apps can be easily exploited by terrorists groups, disinformation groups, and bad actors in general to spread evil in many different forms. Parents, please be vigilant about the content your kids are consuming on their apps. And when it comes to disinformation, we as adults need to condition ourselves to verify that something is true before we share it or engage with it in any way. That is certainly true at all times, but is more important than ever now.

As we pray for peace in the middle east and an end to the fighting, we also need to be aware and alert, and careful not to allow anything that we can’t un-see into our homes.
