Diva Moms Talk Radio, co-hosted by Amanda Hamm and Tammy Munson was recently on Blog Talk Radioand the subject was about how social websites such as My Space influence on teenage girls. As the conversation got started, Tammy and Amanda did discuss how it seems fun to girls to get online at social sites, however, they may not realize the people on the other side of the screen may not be whom the girl think they are…in fact, it could be a predator to find out more personal information about them. Tammy and Amanda discussed further to talk about how this social websites don’t just effect girls but boys are targeted as well by predators. It is the parents who need to do their due deligence to observe what the kids are doing and what kind of websites the kids are involved in. There are computer software programs made with blockers however, as parents it is okay to check and know what websites your kids frequents, especially the social networking sites.
There are two different sides to this issue…some parents feel that they are being protective to know each site their kids are on and others feel that parents should give the kids a bit of freedom and allow them use their best discretion because if you “crowd” the kids, the more they will keep from you.
