Is 12 too young? At what point do you freak out when you find out what web sites your son has been looking at? Does anyone do Net Nanny? Is that a bit pearl-clutching? I could see having that for a 6-8 year old. They're just going to go to a friend's house to see this crap anyway. Should you have a frank discussion about the internet? How do you shield kids from internet porn, and should you? We used to put locks on our cable boxes, and it was very difficult for kids to bring porn magazines into the house with no one finding out. You can't do that anymore. Kids today know how to get around internet locking software anyway. I'm not a prude, but parents have got to place boundaries. No one wants their kids afraid to come to them about sex related information and/or advice. If you think your parents are anti-sex, that could lead kids to explore dangerous forms of sexual activity and rebel. You just don't want to make things worse. Anyone have kids here? On a totally unrelated note, does Net Nanny block out any gay-related articles or content, non-pornographic? Is it made by a Christian organization?
