What's your opinion on teens getting involved in social networking and online chat rooms?
I've read some of the teen conversations on the sites my daughter wants to visit, and they seem relatively harmless. While the Internet can be a wonderful educational and communication tool, it can also be a dangerous place for unsuspecting young teens.
But I'm still afraid of losing control over my child's interactions with her peers. According to a Congressional report, one out of five kids has been solicited online for sex, usually by someone they met in a chat room or through instant messaging.
The Kaiser Family Foundation tells us that 70 percent of teenage Internet users have accidentally encountered pornography on the Web, and that half of those kids said they were very upset by the experience.
