A twenty something year old who teaches and coaches, but has been thrown a curve ball. I've been blessed with the surprise of the arrival of a little one in August. My hubby and I are thrilled, scared, excited, and nervous about the arrival.

When will it end...

When will someone step into the spotlight and demand that controls must be set online. They are set in every other aspect of our life: drinking, driving, smoking, to name a few. Last night, in class, we discussed the importance to involve parents in the understanding of what the internet is doing to their child's generation. At what point do we demand social networking sites to have an age limit and if their are age limits at what point do we require verification for ages? It is quite sad that children feel they can change their age online to appear cooler, or be a different person. Why are we teaching our future that it is okay to lie, to cheat, to be deceitful?
