In a recent interview posted on the Loose Women Twitter page, Nicole Kidman revealed that her kids do not have Instagram accounts because she is not technologically savvy enough to monitor them.
While some parents seem to have liberal views of social media for their kids, others tend to see the need for social media to be monitored for children.
"Big Little Lies" star Nicole Kidman recently revealed that her children do not own Instagram accounts because she is not technologically savvy enough to observe their use of it.
The actress who shares her children Sunday, 12, and Faith, 9, with her husband Keith Urban, said that although her kids are pushing for it, she is standing firm on her decision and asked for the opinion of other parents.
The post was shared on the official Twitter account of "Loose Women." Alongside the link to the interview, a question of what age is appropriate enough for kids to have social media account was raised on the post, which was captioned:
"Nicole Kidman's been telling the #LooseWomen why she won't let her 12-year-old have an Instagram account[...]"
Some parents took to the comment section to share similar sentiments with the movie star stating that social media is dangerous for kids, especially with too many crazy people out there.
One mom said that it was a smart choice to keep her kids off social media because children grow up fast, and they need to keep children away from the harmful influence of social media. A second parent admitted that she only let her son use WhatsApp because all his friends do, and she did not want him feeling left out.
Nicole confessed that her greatest responsibility to her daughters would be helping them keep their confidence and self-esteem intact.
Kidman also has two children from her previous union with Tom Cruise. Although the "The Undoing" star would not let her younger kids use social media, her older children Isabella Jane Cruise, 27, Connor Cruise, 25, are all Instagram users.
Jane reportedly has a massive following of over 25 000. Whenever Kidman is not on set, she loves to pay attention to her growing children. For the multi-Golden Globe winner, family comes before career.
Kidman might be one of the most successful Hollywood actresses, but she is also an average parent who worries about their children, especially when they get into their teenage years.
In an interview which aired on"Loose Women," the famous actress voiced her concern for her 12-year-old daughter, Sunday, as she heads into her teenage years.
With teenage years entirely comes the boy-drama, personal space, privacy, and personal image problems, which usually is a source of headache for parents.
Kidman said that she would not be "a helicopter parent" but would give her girls the chance to make their own mistakes and not be overbearing. The actress confessed that her greatest responsibility to her daughters would be helping them keep their confidence and self-esteem intact.
While some fans shared her parenting sentiments, others were displeased with the way her latest interview with the "Loose Women" was conducted. Some fans said that it was "ridiculous" and "painful" that the prerecorded chat was made to look like a live video call between Kidman and the panel.
Kidman was unable to travel to London for the interview and instead had it done via a video call from her home in America. Fans complained that the flow of the interview did not sit right with them.
Although fans might have been disappointed with the way things turned out, they will take pride in the fact that an A-list actress graced their show.
