I agree with you. And then some parents wonder why their kid is about 300 lbs before the age of 16 or 18. Hmmmm....all those video games. Its just finding a balance, but I do think at least 13 is a good age for Facebook, like for family members to keep up with one another if they live far away, but internet usage should be kept to a well balance and that's with any age!!!

I think it would be a full time job for a parent Rita. Kids love to d/load games and music in particular and a lot of these programmes often contain malware or even viruses. Even I hesitate to go to some of these popular sites somtimes.

No! That is, if I had children. But I don't. I'm glad I don't have any to raise. It must be hard to care for children, these days. They (the kids) have too much going for them that could be going against them.

I totally agree with you!!! I don't want kids either. I don't see my sisters having any either.

I agree with you and I don't do things like that because they can also get into your computer and cause a ton of problems as well.
