Penélope Cruz opened up about why she’s shielding her children from social media until they’re at least 16

As parents of kids of all ages grapple with the proven impact of social media on the mental health of kids, teens, and young adults alike, it’s understandable why some parents choose to prevent their kids from using it altogether. Penélope Cruz explained why she and her husband and Javier Bardem don’t let their kids, 10-year-old son Leo and 8-year-old daughter Lena, use smartphones or use popular social media apps, and why she feels the lack of protection for kids online feels like an “experiment” on developing brains.

Cruz shared her thoughts during the December 19 episode of CBS Sunday Morning, revealing that she also isn’t a fan of using social media herself, despite being in the public eye for nearly three decades. “I have a strange relationship with social media where I use very little of it in a very careful way,” she explained. “There is something that is not making sense, and it is especially affecting younger generations. I feel really bad for the ones that are teenagers now.”
