I know I talk about Oprah far too often in this damn blog. And today is no different.
I just watched the episode that DVR'd today. It was about kids on the internet.. or with cell phones.. and becoming prey... and all of the horrible things that can happen to them.
So. I feel HORRIBLE (to say the least) for the families and the teens that are abused....
Here is the thing, though.
Why the HELL are teens still having computers in their rooms? Why in the HELL are kids getting cell phones?
I can understand why the kid would need access to the computer... for school... for emailing certain people. Outside of that, forget it. In a private room? NO WAY.
I never had a cell phone. None of my friends had cell phones. We didn't text.. we had *gasp* a home phone. We are just fine.
Nothing but trouble can come from parents trusting their kids too much. It doesn't matter how "wonderful" your kid is... they get brain washed, talked into situations you warned them about... then terrible things happen.
When are parents going to wake up?
