Woman arrested for molesting a thirteen year old Xbox friend...

*deep sigh...

When I was young, the neighbors had Super Mario Brothers- and we had strict limits on how long we were allowed to play. Now, with the newer game systems, playing a simple game exposes kids to the entire adult world. Unfortunately, it feels relatively safe, since the child is sitting in your living room.

Are you aware of your kid's xbox live friends?

  • I'm going to guess the majority of parents don't even realize their XBox and Will lets their kids talk to complete strangers in the first place.

  • That woman is sick. My ds plays xbox live. My dh does also so there honestly are tons of friends on there, but my son plays online with my nephew and kids in his class. I have kept a closer eye on it, more because when he use to play under my dh name, the language they used. So now he has his own and only plays with kids he knows, mostly. But then again, its the internet. You have to watch them.

  • NO x-box here either, just got a Wii, but the kids ONLY play games with us using the family room TV.

  • Old double standard. Old guy young girl = pervy guy. Young guy old girl = cool guy. AKA ignorant double standard, but aren't they all?
