The Bene ts of LinkedIn by Teaching Your Kids About

I’m sure parents that have been on LinkedIn long enough to know its
bene ts and want the same success for their kids must have at one point or
the other thought about how early it is to teach their kids to use it. 
And in that line of thought, one question that will pop on a lot of minds will
be “Is it too early for my kids to learn and register on LinkedIn”?
Parents are bothered teaching their kids on LinkedIn earlier than required.
But one thing that most adults fail to realize on time is that learning is a
constant and an integral part of a child’s early years in life.
From the primary rst step to them saying their rst words, kids quickly pick
up new skills they are exposed to, and they courageously do this.
And why do you think this happens with or without your control as a parent?
It is because, as humans, learning is embedded into our existence.
Even as adults, we consciously or subconsciously learn every single day of
our lives.

What Science says about The Benefits of
LinkedIn

Over the years, research has proven that it only takes three years after a child
is born for the brain to develop fully.
Also, science says it will only take eight years for their brain to be overly ripe
for learning.
That means that whatever experience, interests, and interactions your child
gets exposed to at an early stage are more likely to stick with them for the
rest of their lives.
So in this crucial stage of their lives, parents and guardians play a vital role in
their early days of learning.
Therefore, whatever they say or make impacts on these kids directly.
If you are a parent or guardian, you need to take note of this. And so, rather
than talk down on them, try to ll their early days with encouragement, care
and motivation.
It will give them a good head start in life and expand their horizons. 
With that being said, I believe you now have a glimpse of the relevance of
teaching and registering your kids about LinkedIn early enough, right?
But in case it isn’t still apparent to you, we will shed more light on some of
those Bene ts of LinkedIn in this ebook.

Benefits of LinkedI by teaching your kids early

Our fathers and ancestors didn’t meet or use most of the technologies and
platforms available today, yet many of them were successful in their areas of
interest.

Today, we can’t say the same for kids because technology has advanced so
fast that most kids know how to use mobile phones before learning the
ABC.

And before these kids get into their teens, they have already familiarized
themselves with the digital world and various social media platforms. 

The best part is that LinkedIn made it clear that kids from 13 or older can
now register.

So, rather than allow them only to socialize and like pictures on social media
platforms, you can jump on that opportunity and teach them about the
business world of LinkedIn.

This is important because the earlier they also familiarize themselves and
start building those connections on LinkedIn, the better. 

So what are the bene ts of LinkedIn?

1. It will cultivate a habit that will lead to success

The saying that the early birds catch the worms is closely related to another
saying: make hay while the sun shines.

This means that the earlier your kids start learning what it takes to maintain
a professional portfolio and build an excellent reputation, the better for all of
you.

Teach them early enough what it means to get those connections and
generate leads. 

Teach them the essence of communicating professional and being
responsible early enough, and they will thank you for it throughout their
lifetime as an adult. 

Once you start laying these foundational blocks, you’ve set them on the
right path to success. 

2. An enhanced chance of getting admitted into colleges 

It is of great importance to have kids maintain a polished LinkedIn pro le if
you want them to apply for competitive colleges or go for an MBA. 

Studies have shown that, more than ever, admission of cers are increasingly
checking their applicants’ social media accounts.

The reason being that curiosity is second to nature. And that type of
curiosity most of the time leads to Google.

So while admission of cers may decide to check on your child’s social media
accounts to know how responsible they are, they may also decide to know if
your child is already displaying the potentials of leading the park tomorrow
on LinkedIn.

Again, universities worldwide have created one or two pages of their school
on LinkedIn concerning their graduates and where they work after nishing
their degree course as a source of inspiration to those yet to be admitted.

This can positively help your kids make the right school concerning the
school that is right for them.

3. It will help your kids balance aspirations with
achievements 

Early enough, kids can envision what or who they will like to be when they
grow up.

Once you notice as a parent or guardian that your kids are already talking
about this or displaying individual talents in speci c elds, you have to help
them express more con dence in pursuing it.

For kids showing interest in the business world, this is a great time to eld
register them on LinkedIn and teach them how to join groups in their
that will discuss things that will further expand their imagination and
ideology.

Bear in mind that these are some of the roots of personal branding. 

4. Early LinkedIn exposure can help kids get their first
internship job

It is crucial that you get your kids to learn and register on LinkedIn early
enough because, in recent times, companies now use it to source and select
candidates that would t into the short-list of those interviewed.

Nurturing your kids enough about LinkedIn will help them stand out from
the crowd when rare opportunities like this arise.

LinkedIn has also made things a lot easier for both parents and the kids by
providing relevant information that helps you understand how speci c
competitions, scholarships and programmes run to attract the right
attention.

This privilege makes LinkedIn a place that you can rely on to collect your
wins and regularly update your professional story.

It will soon become a habit and hub where you can document what you
have accomplished at different jobs and internships you have achieved.
Growing we used to lose contact with vital people that can immensely
contribute to our growth.
Still, it doesn’t have to be that way anymore with our kids, as LinkedIn has
made it easy to build and retain reliable networks and connections
whenever they meet potential people.

5. It will help them to get recommendations early enough

By registering your kids on LinkedIn early enough, they will get guidance
from their teachers, team coaches, school mentors, volunteer groups and so
on before they graduate from school.
Moreover, these recommendations will assist them in validating their claims
on their LinkedIn pro le.
To further convince your prospects when they visit your kid’s pro le, ensure
the recommendations are coming from these mentors who are also
registered on LinkedIn.
But if they aren’t on LinkedIn, you can get quotations from their
recommendation letters and add them to the summary and experience
section of your kid’s pro le.

6. It will help your kids feel smart and informed

Social media is undoubtedly making kids smarter with each passing minute
because of the volume of information they are exposed to.

Let’s not also forget that it also helps them sharpen their social skills, their
cognitive abilities, improves their memory capacity and expands their critical
thinking.

The more they are exposed to more information, the quicker it is for them to
learn how to critically distinguish between useful information and the one
that is not.

Platforms like LinkedIn can be a good source for your kids to follow up on
newsletters and trends in whatever industry that they want to pursue a
career in future. 

7. It will help your kids feel more confident about
themselves

Early LinkedIn exposure will help them feel more con dent when discussing
speci c topics around other kids and adults.

A study revealed how social media in uences kids to feel better about
themselves.

It was carried out that 29% of teenagers who use various social media
platforms feel less shy.

In comparison, 20% of them felt more con dent about themselves than
those that don’t.

Studies have also proven that kids who appear introverted and awkward
around people can feel more con dent when interacting on social media
platforms.
It will help them develop a better understanding of how to communicate
with their peers and others. 
CONCLUSION
In our closing remarks, you must know that you need to familiarize yourself
with LinkedIn before you can take up the responsibility of teaching your kids
to follow your path.
So if you’re among those that set up a LinkedIn pro le many years ago and
abandoned it, then it’s time to revisit and stay up to date with trends and
developments that you must have missed over time.
Also, know that your kids are bound to learn faster from you than others, so
you need to act quickly.
