The Public Policy & Community Outreach Manager, Instagram (India), Tara Bedi has given her statement regarding this launch as well, 

“As the internet permeates into our lives, especially in the lives of young people, parents want to be adequately equipped with the evolving digital landscape.”

This parent guide is a new resource from Instagram to help provide parents with a better and thorough understanding of the platform. It will be available across many countries when it launches soon.
