It is kind of strange: I worked with some kids on Tuesday on online safety challenges and mainly we talked about Facebook, Netlog, Twitter etc. We had a lot of very good discussions with them about how to protect your privacy
Tonight we will talk to the parent’s of these kids and do our best to educate them as well. What I often say is that if the kids use Facebook, the parents should as well. I t might be “only” to understand how Facebook looks and feels – or to become a friend of the kids. This might be even one of the requirements for them getting online.
And then, I just stumbled across a decision chart whether kids should accept their parent’s friend request (I will not show my kids, please do not tell them ):
