Leading child psychologist Dr Michael Carr-Gregg says you’re “bloody stupid” if you let a child under the age of 13 on social media.

It comes as calls grow for government action on cyber bullying.

Speaking on 3AW Mornings, Dr Carr-Gregg said bullying will never be stopped, purely because teenage brains aren’t fully developed and “you can’t legislate against that”.

But he said parents weren’t helping by allowing those children on websites like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter.

“It’s just bloody stupid,” he said.
