  • My son is just a baby but when he IS that age I don't think I'll be allowing him to just search it. I've surfed that website many times and there are some NASTY things on it!!!

  • My kids are allowed on it. They are 9 and 11. Our TV is in the family room so I usually know what they are watching. I also ask them all the time what they have watched and then I might check it out.

    I guess my feeling is that I would rather know what they are doing then have them go behind my back. I know a lot of there friends watch it and I wanted to know what they were doing. I think as long as you talk to you child about it then you should be okay. If you totally tell them know then they might start watching things at their friends houses and you have no control over that.

    Good Luck

  • My stepson is NOT allowed on YouTube PERIOD if we don't search for something for him. I don't trust YouTube and I don't want him seeing something inappropriate.
