Beginning in July, the first of seven child tax credit payments will be sent to you if you have qualified dependents (including newborn babies and older kids in college). The first half of the child credits will arrive from July to December unless you opt out of the monthly payments, with the rest coming in 2022.

TikTok is facing a new legal challenge in the United Kingdom, as a former Children’s Commissioner is heading up a privacy lawsuit that could involve millions of minors. The suit alleges that TikTok violated child privacy laws in its collection of personal information and in transferring it to third parties.
