Facebook is your child's online playground.. are you watching?


Yes, it's true. Now there is ONE MORE thing we, as parents, have to have “the talk” about. Technology has brought many wonderful things into our lives. We have monitors that let us watch our babies while they sleep. We can TIVO our kids favorite shows while they are studying. We are only a phone or a text message away at any time. However, with all the great things technology has offered us, it has also introduced some potential downsides as well.

A new Kinsey Report shows that the average America youngster spends every waking minute online, other than the time they are in school.  How can a parent monitor a worldwide playground?  One way is to be on that same playground!


With more than 400 million users, Facebook is social force unlike anything parents have faced before. It’s just as important as parents to understand what goes on in this playground as it is to watch out for our kids in the neighborhood park.
 
The Facebook Playground puts children on a very public worldwide stage and understanding the pleasures and risks will help you monitor as well as participate in this area of your children’s lives.

I've been searching that site, but all I get are business and real estate books. I don't see the parents one. (Maybe I'm too Polish?)

My kiddos tell me things like "Mom, my friend so-and-so has a facebook/myspace...can you believe that?!" I know they will get older and probably want them...but for now I'm glad they agree that it's just not what they need!!

Great blog! I saw your comment with a link to your blog on KFVS' fb post. I'm also a homeschool mom! I grew up in So. Illinois - graduated from Shawnee High School in Wolf Lake (teeny-tiny town) and am now living in SE Missouri, married to a pastor:) Small world! Great to "run into" you!
Blessings,
Mindy

My daughter and I have both been on Facebook for awhile. I try not to be too intrusive, but since she's away from home at college it is a great way for us to connect. Kids, and even sometimes adults, need to realize if it's on Facebook/Myspace, it's there for the whole world to see in technicolor. This book sounds like a great way for parents to get some very important info. Love your blog!
