13? Really??? Are these people serious? Apparently they are because I just took a look at FB's terms. I was actually hoping to provide a valid legal argument to my SO who's 14 yr. old son has an account on FB and is a horrible, repulsive child for forcing him to delete it or else I would report it to CPS and the police. I would never allow OUR son to have an account on FB with my consent until he was at least 16 and than only under my strict supervision of every single person he chats with and every single thing he looks at! That just absolutely infuriates me to no end, I am 34 and have seen it all and I often get repulsed by some things I view on that site. WOW, I am sooooo shocked!! And people wonder why these "little children" make the choice to shoot up schoolyards full of innocent children, hmmmmmmm?

Not everything on the Internet is a horrible, bad influence on children. When my son is 13 I will allow him to use facebook and I will be a responsible parent in my choice to do that. I think you are being far too judgemental about children's use of the Internet. It could be merely a lack of knowledge on your part, but there are plenty of ways to monitor activity without being sneaky. The first time your son catches you being sneaky you'll simply promote sneakiness on his part. To assume that the internet and fb contributed to school shootings and other violent crimes is naive to say the least.
