Jennifer Garner is ''terrified'' of letting her children use social media.

The 46-year-old actress has children Violet, 12, Seraphina, nine, and Samuel, six, with her former husband Ben Affleck, and whilst they're currently all too young to be spending time on social media websites, she's nervous to let them become exposed to the ''pressure'' websites like Facebook and Twitter have on young children.

She said: ''My kids don't have any social media yet, and I am terrified. I think it puts so, so much pressure on kids at an age when they're really vulnerable anyway.''

The 'Peppermint' actress admits she's ''overprotective'' when it comes to her brood, but wants to make sure they're properly prepared for the dangers of life online.

She added during an interview with Fox News which was published on Tuesday (04.09.18): ''You know, if anyone has any clues, let me know. I am probably overprotective.''

Jennifer has been vocal about her love for her children in the past, and said last month her brood ''define'' her whilst she was accepting her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

She said: ''All of you here are the most special people in the world to me. Violet, Sera and Sam. Hi, buddy! And my parents and my sisters, my nieces and my nephews.

''For my children, when you walk over this star I want you to remember, first of all, that I love you. And that this is about hard work and good luck and not a whole lot else. You define me, not this wonderful spot on the pavement.

''Also, for the record, don't spend too much time on Hollywood Boulevard.''
