Rhertz, you are absolutely correct with your post. In our home we have even banned the kids from being on MySpace. Now I can not control what they do at school on a computer or elsewhere but while they are in the house it is off limits. It has certainly made a big difference in their attitudes alone. One of the things that appalls me the most about the teens on MySpace is their language. Some of it seems to be more foul than anything I would expect to hear in a prison. They also seem to have no fear of putting all of their information on their page with no thoughts given to who may be seeing it.

It is indeed surprising that kids put everything on their My Space page for anyone to see! Their parents, their teachers, their employers can check in and see what these kids are really about! My kids do have them but so far I haven't been too shocked by their posts and pictures. I have to remember when I was their age I was doing similar things but then again not telling and showing the whole world about it. Hmmmm....guess it's time to go do a little snooping, er, I mean checking up on them!

Yes well what can I say...there are to many horror stories out there to not warrant providing some measure of safety for your children.

I just hope you understand that MySpace isn't the bad apple spoiling the bunch....It's closer to the truth to say that MySpace is a product of it's environment and that your children have computer skills far exceeding your own. My guess is if they are teens you have done little more than inconvenience them.

Oh I am quite sure my children are far more adept with computer skills than I many times. I at least have not put the gun in their hand, the pills in their mouth, etc. I have made it difficult for them. Also I can get on and check their last log in date!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They don't know that Mom knows how to find their MySpace page and info quite as well as I do. I love to play stupid for them and let them fall into the trap!

Good work Tbelle! And if they want a U3 Smart drive for their birthday, be very suspicious. The only thing that really works are "server side" filters like N2H2's Bess filter which are common in many schools.

Please tell what you do when the trap is shut ? How do you get on to look at their space ? I am still not that crazy about myspace for my kids or anybody else placing their photos on a web site. Crazy world it is

How do I get to look at their space? I can never tell my secret in public on the board!!! But let's suffice it to say the kids should pay more attention to who they make their "friend"!

I wonder if Mom wasn't so busy using underhanded tactics to spy on her kids if they would be a little less sneaky and more open with her?

Ummm Brain you obviously don't have kids so you'll never understand truly what us parents are referring to. I spend very little time checking up on my children. I simply don't have to. It's just there if I need it. My children have been raised well and therefore as of this day have made pretty good decisions.

It's interesting how people without kids seem to want to give us parents advice the most isn't it? I have been very fortunate that my girls and I have a very open relationship. I'll say I've even been startled by some things they have confided and entrusted in me. I think it's okay to make sure that any inappropriate photos or language or too much info. aren't being placed on My Space. If so I just ask her to take it down AND she knows I glance at it every now and then. One can never be too careful especially with daughters!

Yeah, I was born an adult too and don't have any first hand experience at being a child, and with the exception of Anime, more recently than most folks here too.

BTW, creating alternate personalities for the sole purpose of spying on your children falls smack dab in the middle of going overboard, in my opinion, regardless of how you justify it to yourself.

Of course, and not having children means I lack the intelligence to form opinions. Just like people should shoot heroin in their veins before having opinions about illegal drugs and try butt sex a time or two before having opinions about sodomy and/or homosexual relationships too, huh?

Yeah, thank god we don't all live on your planet.

We could just make him the new SB Dr. Spock. Always get his advice first on how to raise your children.
