Youth Counselling

What should I do?

I am 14 years old. I want to sign up on some social networks like Instagram, Facebook, etc. but I can’t because my elder brother won’t let me do so. What should I do?

Dear Sharon, regarding signing up on some social networks at the age of 14 it is better that you get the approval of your family. Your elder brother is against it; therefore you could also get the opinion of your parents. If they too are against it, I advise you to respect their opinion. They may be afraid that you will waste a lot of time on these networks and neglect your studies. If you do well in your studies they may change their minds and allow you. Study well now, social networks can wait.
