The rules to facebook says 13 so if you let them have one at 11 you are telling them it is ok to lie to get what you want.

There is absolutely no need for an 11 year old to have a FB account. They can wait a whole 2 more years.

Simple answer: NO. First, FB guidelines and rules state that 13 is the minimum age. Simple enough to follow. If your kid isn't 13, the answer is NO.

Alternatively, you can teach your child that lying about their age is acceptable. Do you want to teach them to lie, or do you want to raise an honest kid? Remember, if they lie about one thing, they lie about 2, and it multiplies.

No, they are not "mature" enough to navigate it safely or deal with any bad situations that may arise.

I would personally say that's too young, but it's all about how you feel, if it's your child! :)
