I am deeply saddened by the reality that comes with the internt. I watch a show called growing up online: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/kidsonline/
The reality is this is going to effect our children and there are those who will overreact and others that won't react at all. However, it's such a contradiction because here we are on cafemom asking and giving advice on our own lives, and it become much of a source of venting and information for us as it has for our younger counterparts. Is being worried hypocritical? What do you think ???

I am VERY strict about my 13 y/o sons access to the internet. I dont allow a myspace, facebook, yada yada new site of the week. Yes I have one. But as pointed out by a previous poster I am an adult. I wont risk my childs innocence simply because Im considered an "overprotective" parent for not allowing him online freely. I have the "kids online" software that reports to me everywhere he goes and limits access. It also sends me copies of sent and rec emails. No I dont think of this as invasion of privacy, it is assurance of his safety. My son has privacy, I dont listen in on his phone conversations, go through his room (but if given a reason to..like theft or drugs you can bet I will),or invade his personal privacy..but I will monitor his activity online until he is an adult. Please know..This is what we feel is best for our family. I am not bashing anyone who does otherwise.
