My 11 year old was relentless when it came to asking to join a social network (facebook, youtube, myspace). Each and every time I said no. I come to find out that on a day that I am sick in bed with a migraine, he went ahead and created an account on YouTube. Now, generally we monitor his internet and even password protect his computer for approved sites only. He used my computer, which is off limits. So...I make the discovery after seeing him sneak around in my office and frantically closing windows. Turns out my 11 year old has listed himself as "14, white and single". Disappointed is a mild reaction, I was furious. He no longer has any internet privileges. Period. Do other parents allow their kids to use social networks as young as 11? Am I just overprotective? If not at my house, will he just go to a friends and do the same thing?
