It is crazy that an issue from five years ago is still really relevant. I am a mom of a 13 year old girl, and I have monitored her online usage since she was 10. I randomly audit her texts and I am blind copied on all of the emails that she receives. Now I know that she is computer savvy enough to create another email that I don't have access to, so I will probably start checking her computer. She also does not have a smart phone.
When I was a young adult I dated online. It was before it was so easy to do everything virtual though. I don't know how I feel about my daughter doing that though.View Thread
