We have a 12 yr old in a private school 7th grade.
He has now started learning about MySpace, Facebook and other social networking sites from class mates who are already active members on such sites.
He has accepted our reasoning that he is still legally below the age requirement eligibililty of such sites and there is no way we would allow it.
But he does feel the pressure of not being 'like the rest' by not being able to 'do' MySpace' etc.
I just wanted to know opinions of other parents on this issue, how they would handle it, how they have handled it etc..
