I think some times we forget children are asking questions on here too and I would hate for my 13 yr old to come on here and ask a question on here that he would think is important and get bashed by everyone. I think we should all consider all questions as potentially relevant. I do see we all love pets here and it gets frustrating to see that some people own pets and dont seem to have a clue about them but its good to treat everyone with the respect they deserve.
i have teenagers . the way they talk to each other sometimes , leads me to believe that they could handle anything that is dished out on here. i have seen way worse stuff on Myspace and AIM. i like a clean house , which includes their bedrooms. they have got a few good tongue bashings from me over their rooms. if they can deal with that , a little dose of TP is not going to traumatize them for life.
hey im 13. i respect your opinion just as much as an adult, and i should be respected too. i have my opinions just as much as the next person. but i don't know if there is like an r rated topic here unless people start cursing. i mean the fighting that goes on here is about puppymills and grammar(lol). its not anything big
Bitch was not what I was talking about. I was reading a post by puppylove and she just seemed like the comments went right over her head and I felt a bit of sympathy for her. Maybe I was in a light bulb moment and should get back to my self centered self and remember youths of today are not as sheltered as the ones in my family and I shouldnt give a crap.If you cant beat em, join em!LOL!
My daughter is turning 13 this week. I would not want her on this website frankly not because of the language, but because I don't feel that it is acceptable how people treat other people on this site. Not to mention all of the misinformation and ranting.
Call me a female dog, but my daughter does NOT have any unmonitored internet activity or even an e-mail address. About the only time I let her on at all is when she is downloading songs or doing homework/research for school.
I think there is a bigger chance of kids learning bad things on the internet rather than good. They grow up fast enough.
i am not a bad parent because i dont believing in shielding things from my children. i raised six kids , all healthy and sound. there is a "real" world out there and soon they will be out in it. its better they know what to expect beforehand. yes, there is arguing here sometimes. but there is also alot of good information to be learned. i am 50 and still learning. i would much rather have my kids come here than places like myspace, aim, xanga, etc. at least we dont have cussing, stalkers, or pedophiles stalking this site. a little arguing now and then is nothing compared to what goes on ,on some of the sites that are geared for teens !
I didn't say what I was doing was the only way things should be done. I am 31 and I am strict and pretty old fashion. Or maybe I am a mean mom... I guess it is up to opinion. I am not letting her wear eye makeup either, but I know lots of good parents do, but it doesn't change my mind for her.
I just don't think unrestricted internet use is right for my kids. If you google my first name...what comes up? Porn. Not just any porn, hardcore nasty fetish porn more than likely. Stuff I don't even want to look at much less do as a married woman. Once kids accidentally see that stuff, you can't ever ever ever take it back out again. The innocence is gone.
Everyone has diffrent oppions on kids just like with everything eals. I think If you dont want your kids on here dont let them. Its your job to watch your kids not the worlds job to watch for everyons kids.
Would I let my kids on here? Yes there is nothing wrong with this page. People do fight on here but I have herd far worse on the school bus.
I think alot of parents blame Tv and the net and games and thing way to much. Its my job to make sure my little girl does not go off shotting people its not the makers of GTA job to make sure she does not. Its my job to make sure my little girl does not go to school saying shes raped her mom not Slims. Its my job to make sure my little girl does not give our dog chocolate not yours. Its also my job to decide what she is ready to do, hear, and watch not the worlds job to tip toe around making sure she does not hear, see, or say something she shouldnt.
I do understand some people dont think this web page is good for there children but its there job to make sure they dont come on here.
Oh and people saying bitch when talking about a dog makes me laugh too. My friend is always saying it and every time i giggle like i was 13
I have a 12,15,17,year old living at home still,this is a great sight for my kids to be on they really enjoy it.I dont have to worry about them on this site,because the mods do a good job making this a kid friendly site ,and so do most of the regular posters.Sometimes theres arguments on this sight,but big deal.I have been in all 3 of my childrens schools countless times and what the kids discuss there just walking down the corriders makes this stuff chicken feed.
