TikTok, one of the fastest-growing social networks among children under the age of 16, has recently come under fire for violating privacy laws. Read on as Legal Mom Marisa and Marcin shed some light on the legal issues surrounding the use of this app and what you as parents can do to prevent your children from being affected.
Let’s face it—whilst being a supermom, there are some things that are completely out of our control. Child safety online is a constant worry for many parents. The Internet is the one place where a multitude of things can be hidden (from you) or given away to strangers by other people (including children!) who do not know any better.
In association with DelftMaMa, we have undertaken to deliver some practical tips and insights on what parents can do to protect their children online.

NOTE FROM THE EDITORS
Initiated over 2 years ago, the Delft Mama blog has delivered numerous creative, heartwarming contributions throughout the years. Looking back at those earlier posts — in our role as current editors — we realized there were quite a few that we missed. Surely we aren’t the only ones, especially with new members joining Delft Mama each year. With that in mind, we decided to take a look back a couple times each year to recall one of those “Oldies but Goodies”.
Here’s the first installment, a rather recognizable, yet shocking and frankly funny post that speaks to the core of one of Delft Mama’s missions — to help build networks and provide support that makes families (and families-to-be) feel at home here in Delft.
