DO you allow your teen daughter to date? Cell phone? TV in room? FaceBook? MySpce? and how do you monitor and/or reward? I personally found the facebook/myspace to be a tool for gossip. (I also work in the discipline office at a high school and have seen first hand how wonderful some of these internet social sites are "helping" our teen culture. I would love some feedback/thoughts on what other parents are thinking about all of our wonderful techno teen stuffAnswer Question

my teen is 15... I dont reward period... never have.
I dont allow dating, but if she wants to call someone her boyfriend that is fine... she only sees him at school any way.
I do allow cell phone, she is very active with sports and I have 3 kids total... so it is much more for me than for her... though she probably sees it as all for her.
TV in bedrooms we dont allow... she offered once to purchase it herself with saved money... but we simply told her no.
Facebook... yes, with hesitation, but I monitor it daily while she is at school, and all adult relatives (granny and aunts) that request she MUST accept. I have pass words and will often check her settings.
Ipod....... HELL YAH.... we are all about the music.
