Whatever possibly suicidal updating
I can't say I have a problem with this; I don't want my kid to look like a thug or ho, either.I also have a release sheet I have to sign agreeing to let my daughter on the Internet; the school uses filters but "determined users" might be able to get past them -- i.e., anyone who know how to get into the preferences and turn off the filters.I believe in letting my daughter explore online, but on the other hand, I'm not stupid, either.

I realize I'm in an extreme minority here, but I have to say I'm pretty much totally unconcerned about Athena pulling up something objectionable on the Internet, and as for viewing something inappropriate, I think if she did her first reaction would simply to be to ask what it is that she's viewing.
Athena knows from us that there are some things that she as a kid isn't supposed to be viewing -- that there's an adult world and a kid's world, and when we tell her something is for adults, she usually gets it.
