Parents, who do not, don't care enough about their kids. Or don't want to know what they are doing.

I can't believe in this day and age, after all we know about cyber predators, people still think this way. You better believe that I will do what I think I need to do to keep my kids safe. And I'm not a prude. I tell dirty jokes to my son. We have a good time together and I trust him most of the time. But he is prone to making bad decisions just like everyone else, and if I am aware of these choices, then I can be better equipped to deal with them.

I am sure you will feel different when you are a parent.



@lurkswithin - Very well put. Good luck finding some trouble that I myself didn't find when I was your age or younger.

lol i can find trouble that you guys probably havent...my dad owns a junkyard and freeks if your up there having a crash up derby because its dangerous thats ok my friends and i had a plymouth caravan VS chev cavalier and the van kicked the shit outta the cavalier. but the way i see it about internet activities is:


-dont go on chat lines
-dont visit someone you dont know that you met on-line
-and so waht if they're looking at porn? as long as your not hurting anyone.

now the last part there is where most parents freek, "WHAT IS THIS PORNO!!!"
"LA LA LA"
"THATS IT IM TAKING THE COMPUTER!"

and thats how most conversations go with parents. they just freek and start threatening. so i just use my backfire proof method of "oh well my computer you touch it and i break your fingers, dont touch my personal property without my permission" and then they say "i pay for power and internet" then just use the good old term "thats ok ill pay for internet and get a generator!" and they lose. anyway parents freek over porn. i dont look at porn on a regular basis like most people maybe 1-2 times in a monthif that usualy none. and thats only a quick glance at a recieved picture or something.

download:

privacy guardian and most parents cant figure out where to go after that, neither can i so i dont figure my dad who hates computers and my mom who doesnt use them would know where to look.

I don't think parents should be that worried about porn, it think it's when your kids are looking at stuff like cult websites and "how to make a pipe bomb" that they should be concerned. porn isn't hurting anybody. cept maybe the kids going blind.....
