So I just saw this thing on GMA this morning and it was an expose about kids sites not being as safe as you think they are. The kids were on nick.com and clicking on banners and playing games like "Naughty Babysitter" and "Spank the Monkey " During the game playing the nick banner still waved above the game, giving the kids this sense that this was a safe site.
I usually let the kids go on nick.com, as I considered a safe site. Now I have to go back to just webkinz until I look into it I guess.
There was also a whole piece on iphone apps and how kids could reach apps through apps but this is not an issue for us as we have no iphones here.
The internet is a scary place sometimes. That's why my teen (who is 15) has serious parental controls on her laptop. Her computer will shut down at 10:00 on weekdays and 11:00 on weekends. There is also a password needed to even log on to the computer. She can never log on without my knowledge. I check the parental report often, and log onto her email and facebook accts frequently. Not because I don't trust her, but because I don't trust others. That's just the way it is. My younger guys don't get on the internet too often, at least not without me right there.
