    Myspace

    Advertisements
    Should parents allow children under the age of 14 have a myspace page?

    I refuse to let our children have a myspace page until they are at least 14 (min. age allowed on myspace) yet many of their friends have them. What are your thoughts?

    I really don't think they should have them till they are 16, but I know parents who have made pages for their babies.

    I think you're doing right. I think that myspace can expose them to more than they need to see at such young ages. I heard something the other day that children are still developing (their brain) and vulnerable until the age of 21.

    nope, it's against their TOS.
    regardless, i wouldn't let my kid have one if they were under 15 or 16. my 14 year old cousin has one though.

    nope I won't let mine have one, besides he's only 10, and I personally think 14 is still way to young to have one anyway especially with all the preditors out there not to mention that horrible story about the teenager that commited suicide because of someone being extremely stupid and childish............ sorry I get VERY protective when it comes to kids and the internet

    I feel the same way as you all. As I told our son (12) if he wants to "chat" with friends he can either email them, call them, write them a letter, or get together with them. I don't see a need for myspace at such a young age. Another HUGE issue for me is letting him lie about his age to get a myspace. I just can't give my child/children permission to lie

    You already know my thoughts on it. I disagree with myspace in general. I probably won't allow it at all until they were 18, but I'm a meanyhead like that.

    If you can monitor it all day~ keep it private~ I think age 14 is okay.. My neighbor dd is 11 and has one but momma watches it const. But I work all day so its a no go for my dd.. she is way toooo young.. And DF disagrees~ I dont think myspace is for younger crowd.. or it shouldnt be..

    I agree with you. It's amazing the things that some parents choose to ignore and allow their kids to do....
