It's quite disheartening to look at the statistics for cyber bullying and to see all the graphs detailing how often children are in situations where they might have online contact with sexual predators. That's the true downside of sites like Facebook, and these parents who forbid their children from ever getting near a social site have got a point. But that also equals breeding contempt in their little ones, who will (rightfully) feel they are prevented from joining all their friends where the big fun is happening. So, the best course of action if you're a parent is to relent and let your children open all these social accounts they're so keen on. And then, keep a good watch on what they are doing using a tool like uKnowKids.
