  2. Sara up there speaks a very interesting language!

    I've got a 14 year old that sneaks constantly onto myspace. No matter how much I talk to him about it, he just does not believe anything bad could happen. Next step is -- computer is gone if I catch him again.

    Then I let him know about a little thing I can look at called "history" -- he became very wide-eyed.

    I know that maybe my worry to overblown about myspace -- bad things can happen in real life and in the virtual world -- but myspace still scares me.

  3. Blogger can be the same way, and no doubt they are both open invites to anyone surfing through.

    My Boogrrrl's buddy has MySpace and a Blogger blog and she writes all kind of stuff and posts pics of herself. I seen porno ad comments on her blog and tried
    to talk her through setting up the Turing Test (word verification) but she just laughs it off. She's a tough kid but ... I just worry cuz she's only 13 yet. I think her Dad uses the PC a little but again I'm not so sure how much track of her activities they keep.

    Fun and Games! {sigh...}
