No filter and no usage! Kate Winslet is not letting any of her kids "like" anything on social media. In fact, it's banned in the home.
"It has a huge impact on young women's self-esteem, because all they ever do is design themselves for people to like them," she told the Sunday Times. "And what comes along with that? Eating disorders. And that makes my blood boil. And is the reason we don't have any social media in our house."
The mother of three -- ages 15, 11 and 22 months -- thinks children should find their entertainment from nature, similar to the way she (and so many others above the age of 30) grew up.
"Let your kids climb trees," she added. "Take the device out of their hands. Play Monopoly! You go to a cafe and grown-ups are at one end of the table and children the other, on devices, not looking up."
While Kate is firm in her anti-social media feeling, she doesn't want to be thought of as a celebrity on a soapbox. She just feels that digital devices drive a stake through the idea of family.
"It takes every member of a family to be a member, and there are too many interruptions these days," he said, "and devices are a huge interruption."
