Teenage Dating Apps are a Disaster Waiting to Happen

What happened to the days of teenagers
Hanging out with their mates
Playing sport, or going to the beach?

These activities now compete
With screens and apps
As they fixate on their phones
And trawl social-media sites

It’s killing the art of conversation
Blunting their social skills

Why are the looking for love online?
They have little or no idea
Of the person on their screen
As a teen they barely know themselves

Adelaide paedophile Matthew McIntyre, 35
Connected with a 13-year-old girl
In a state care facility
Using the myLOL app

He impregnated and made her pregnant
And is now serving a 2-year jail sentence

Social media apps can be dangerous
Parents warn your teens
And re-enforce their self-worth
So they don’t need to turn to the
‘Playground for predators’ for validation
