    parents should not be overprotecting their kids....its ok to take care of them and everything but sometimes...its just too much! just like my mother...sometimes she does not let me go out with my friends and my cuz who is like 17...and she want to go everywhere i go and read the things i write on my journal and computer and wont even let me ride bike with my freind or play basketball olne outside cuz shes so scared i might get kidnapped and raped or somthing like that...........im 13

    Parents should adjust to their childs age. If you treat a 10yr old the same as a 13 or 15, then you are doing a very bad job, and your kids will notice.

    watch what the teens are doing on the internet. know if their email addresses and know if they have a myspace. check what they are doing online. girls especially. a lot of girls are stupid and meet older guys on the net and then get raped. its their fault! and make sure the kids don't get on this site and post stupid questions lol.

    ok im 13

    Parents sholud let you try to fight your own battles not just jump in and fight them for you, well never learn that way.

    We need our space and time, and they need to accept that instead of "lock us up"

    They need to protect us from somethings but not everything, or else we'll never make it in the real world
