I found out by accident that my 12yr old made a facebook account. She used a different name, set up a different email account. We had had the talk about no facebook etc., until I thought she had become responsible enough. I went through the roof! I friended her, and she just about died. I made her delete the page, it is still there but inactive, and we set up a real page, with me having as much info that I could think of asking for.
I then did some detective work and found she had a myspace and had aged 3 years. I had her delete that one. I have asked if there is anything else out there, no was the answer. Do I believe her? No, It makes me feel truly sick that they have all these ways of getting around us. She is a great student, friendly, artistic and articulate, and usually trustworthy. This is their world, not ours, we are learning it, they are living it. It is scary.
We all get heavier as we get older,
because there's a lot more information in our heads.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Don't get your knickers in a knot It makes you walk funny!
