I feel like I am shooting down every idea that DS has asked for for Christmas. He asked for a PS3, which we are not getting -- can't justify spending $400 on it when we have a perfectly good system already (Wii) and the only games he likes for PS3 are rated M, which I refuse to have in my house...
He also wanted a big trampoline. DH shot that one down. Too afraid of injury.
So it seems like he should get ONE little thing on his list. He is asking for a Web Cam. I am a little hesitant just because of all the stories being reported about the inappropriate pictures kids are sending to each other via their cell phones and internet... Why make it even easier? BUT-- he has to use his computer in the common area of the house, where we can always see what he is doing. And the reason he wants it is to video chat with his friend who recently moved to Texas, and another friend who moved to New Zealand. They both do video chat. What are your thoughts on it? Is it asking for trouble?
