I looked at the website and decided it's not one I wish to get involved with... I created a facebook account once, but to be honest today I think I'm going to kill it...

I have to pick my addictions wisely...  I have this website I'm active on and the autism speaks on occasion, blogspot and livejournal... but otherwise I have to be careful what sites I get involved with.  I can only be active at one place at a time and if I spred myself too thin, then it does no good.

I have one and my teenagers have one as well.  As a parent I thought I should absolutely know what my kids were into, and so I made a myspace page that allows me easier access to their pages.  I Also made giving me their user names and passwords a requirement to have a page.  

Their "friends" are not allowed to use expletives, show pornography anything else that I feel is inappropriate.  If I find something, I not only talk with my kids and their "friend,"   but I have been known to call parents when I thought something needed attention.  If nothing was done about it, I made my kid(s) delete their friend. (only happened once.)

To do this kind of thing requires constant vigilance, communication with your kids and computer saavy (especially on parental controls and internet "history" controls.)  If you don't want to do all this (or can't,) then I don't recommend letting kids/teens get on the computer without your presence.

I have a myspace account but rarely go on it.  

My step kids had one but we knew the passwords and all of that.  Now they are on yearbook i think.  I worry about "stalking".

I wouldnt care if my bf had one or not.

coolio asked because we're going to have a medhelp group on there, the few of us that are on there!! :) domino, I worry about stalkers too, keep your page PRIVATE, only your friends can see it, and require your e-mail or last name for friend requests! :) I'd love to be friends with more of you on there too!!! thanks coolio!!!

I don't have one..our (adult) kids do...If we're going to have a group there I might consider it..as long as my kids can't find me and I can't find them.

LOL, usually people want to check on the kids, but I suppose if yours are grown adults, maybe a different story? :) Just don't tell them about it and have your page private if you decide to.

I have let my 15 yr old get a my space this yr but I have the username and password and it is ran off my email so I can see who writes her and askes to be a friend. I do check it 2 to 3 times a week whenever I choose just to see what is being said. So far I thank God that she has followed values I have taught her and I dont see to much I dont like. But there are alot of horney teenagers out there druggin and drinkin and they do tend to put it all out there. Just monitor and be the parent not a friend when it comes to myspace it will save you a headache.
