you can still have your daughter talk to fred and vice versa, as we are allways with him when he does...you just do the same...and they can comunicate

Fred does like to post and loves reading the comments..he laughs a lot.

By the way, Fred is only allowed to open and read threads he started (or me)

He goes to tthe subscribed threads and opens the ones he is subscribed to.

works ok that way...but my wife said she once caught him in one of the other threads and he was laughing a lot...he closed befpre she saw it..

For those that do not know, we just had a major issue (being nice with my words) from another "member". I read that and thought, "Man, what would have happened if my son had read that???"

The truth is, we cannot stop that. We cannot stop someone from writing that. We can delete it quickly, but not stop it. My son would NOT have understood, and this ole Dad would hate having to explain it to him. That is something life will teach him... I don't want it to be the internet. My son hugs everybody and never meets a stranger.

SO the question the parents here should ask themselves is: How would your kid respond if they had been attacked by an adult they did not know??

Nah, I am putting the kabosh on this thing now - unless we can really come up with some good ways of keeping them out. I will put my thinking cap on, but it would be a lot of work. It is too bad too, because there are a lot of great people here and in the world and I want my boys to have a place where they can socialize without fear of retribution. But that may not be the world we live in.

Something to remember is that sailnet would need to make sure they are in compliance with COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act).

Just to throw yet another issue on the pile :P

My children are beyond this age group, so I won't vote on the subject. I agree the communication ideal would be great, but the control would be almost impossible. May I suggest an alternate solution. A pen, paper and a stamp. All the control you need. Can even use a PO Box if you want. Might even be a new experience for today's youth.

Perhaps all the parents with children could find out if they(the children) are interested. I mentioned it to my 15 and my 16 year old and they both looked at me like I was crazy. My son said that is why he has a myspace account.

You know what folks? You don't have to be involved in every aspect of your kid's lives and that includes inviting them to participate in an adult forum. You wanna hang with your rug rats online, I'm sure Disney has a Hanna Montana forum or some other sanitzed sandbox for you to play in. This ain't the place.
