What are your kids doing with their computers

Did anyone watch Oprah today? She had a fascinating story on. A young man who was an honor student and class president.

He got his first web-cam at 13 and started talking to people he thought were his friends. They turned out to be pedophiles, who eventually asked him to meet them. I am not going to tell you the whole story, if you want to read it I suggest you go to Oprah show and find out for yourself.

I am going to ask you, do your kids have a web-cam? If so, do they minimize the screen when you walk into their bedrooms? Have their habits changed? Do they spend more time on the computer than ever before? Do they have money or expensive items that you know they couldn't afford to buy? Are they old enough to go on trips buy themselves and if so do you know exactly where they are at all times and with whom they are with? Have their grades fallen?

If they do any of the above you might want to check out what they are doing on their computers.

Take care everyone

Very good post as always, Kat.

As for mine, knock on wood, they are pretty great kiddos. But then, we take the time and effort to watch over and include them in what we do... together as a family. But even then, you still have to watch out for the "others." hug, unlisted
