    Create a Google Account for your Child and Manage it through Google Family Link

    The COVID lock down has made it now necessary for our children to have a Google account to access the online classes conducted by the schools through Google Classroom and other virtual classroom platforms. Most of the cases the parents are giving their wards their own e-mail id to join the classroom. This may create many practical difficulties for the students, parents and teachers. For parents, it may not be advisable to let their child use their Google accounts as that may cause problems. Creating another ID in parents name for this purpose may be a good idea. But, as the students are enrolled under the name of the parents in Google Classroom, this creates practical difficulties for the teachers to manage the grades of their students properly.  

    The minimum age limit to have a Google account is 13, but Google lets the parents to create  a Google Account for their child under 13 (or the applicable age in your country), and manage it using Family Link.With Google Accounts, children get access to Google products like Search, Chrome, and Gmail, and you can set up basic digital ground rules to supervise them.
