Commenting is only one part of the engagement with a profile. Not only can parents restrict who can comment on their teen’s videos, but they can also manage who can send them direct messages. The alternative is to turn off direct messaging entirely.
Direct messaging will be turned off by default for users that are under 16, and images and videos that are off-platform can’t be sent in messages.
