My 14 year old dd is deleting the convos right before getting off the computer. Mostly it's a power struggle for privacy after we told her we didn't like some of the things we saw when we checked the history... A restricted(18) download from one boy along with some suggestive talk from him (not her), some things her bf said, mostly suggestive talk about getting laid in online video games, calling us assholes ( she is not allowed to see bf outside of school and doesn't), and one comment from her to him about a dream she had regarding making out and touching "junk". She has been very good at home w/chores, school, signing up for summer volunteering, and possibly teaching flute, and is only allowed 1 hour on the computer, but will take a walk w/phone and talk w/bf. He can't deal w/the limits on the relationship..needs to keep her interested.
We are trying to monitor this w/out making her crazy, although it makes us a bit crazy.
