Tami, I don't think you are being over protective you are aware of what dangers can be out there and don't want your child to fall pray to it. I think with the chat forums kids can easily forget about the safety rules (don't post what school you go to, town you live in, etc.) because they don't see the big picture.

We have so many sexual offenders in my town and a lot in our immediate area that we don't let our soon to be 14 yr old just go bike riding on her own. I know she thinks we are over protective by making her say which friend's house is she going to (and she had better be there if I drive by). And we don't let her spend the night at someone's house that we haven't met either.
