In the late '90s, parents worried about Internet predators trying to contact their children in chatrooms and over instant messages.
Moms advised their children never to give out their name, what school they go to, phone number, address or photos. But now, teens volunteer all of this information on Facebook, and more.
Teens may even post incriminating photos of themselves and their friends, not thinking of the consequences. They may also share their thoughts and moods they would never discuss with their parents, but readily post on the Internet.
Facebook and other social networking sites, such as Formspring, are also venues for cyber-bullying.
Monitoring your child's Facebook profile raises concerns about respecting their privacy, but on the flipside parents want to know what information their children are exposing on the Internet and what they are up to.
This week's Moms Talk topic is: Do you monitor your child's Facebook page? What age should a child be allowed to have their own Facebook page? Is there an age that is too young? Also, do you monitor what they post, or do you feel it violates trust bond between parent and child?"
