Teen frustrated that parents restrict access to social-networking sites

You can't block out what the kids want to do. If you block facebook or myspace at home, then they'll just do it at a friends house, or find some other way around it.I trust my kids and we talk about what constitutes safe usage. They appear to "get it" just fine. I keep the computers in the house in public spots (ie, den) and I keep them off at reasonable hours using ComputerTime.This is the formula that works for my family. YMMV.
