there isn't a lot you can do to stop the sick freaks that pose as children, but it can't be that hard to stop your children going to meet strangers on their own?
parents are becoming less and less actively involved in their children's lives, and blaming things like videogames when their kid goes anti-social, instead of them not teaching their kid right from wrong.
i have told both girls that sick old men pretend to be boys and no one needs to talk to you about sex.i have to say, i have used the quiz rooms on some sites and apart from the fact my pc is slow – its harmless fun.
– by woman point of viewhaving 2 daughters aged (now) 19 and 12, we have a simple rule in our house – no chat rooms. it upsets me how casual parents take their childrens' wellfare.
– by a goddamned trampwhy do people keep complaining about 'old news on geek.com'?
for the last time: this is a news opinion and comment site!!!!
blocking out adult sites and things is all very well, but it's just encouraging more ways we can set up protection without having to take an active part in our children's lives.
what's stopping you surfing the net with your children, or stopping and telling them about the big bad world?
no we don'behave in a proper should it be any different on the web.i say shut down all the chats till the human race learns to comunicate in a civil manner.i have yet to see an online forum that wasnt filled to the hilt with bickering yelling cursing or deletion of posts.i f the human race can't catch up then darnit let's throw away all this crap we have created and go live in mud huts where we started from.
i mean, seriously, how many young kids want to talk about sex with old men?? chat rooms should be regulated in the exact same way conversation in your living room, in your church, in your mosque, in the pub, or on the street cornor. chat,but have used other chat rooms and know you can give out sexually explicit photos by clicking on a link.don't yahoo!
chat rooms have room operator's so they can ban or kick these type of predator's for the room's.
– by paranoidi'd agree with you, but she know's i'm not raising a “man hater”. i'm the one teaching her how to sit like a lady so chumps aren't looking up her skirt, or how to hold her shirt so men aren't looking down it.
i'm teaching her how to be cautious of men, because i know how many men think. i sleep well at night, my daughter loves me and i respect her.
surf the net by all means, chat with your friends on msn, but you don't need to go talking to strangers. how many children are coaxed from their families by these individuals, to never be seen again.
