Ever Checked into MySpace? If You Have Children, You Should

If you're a parent, or work with youth, or simply care about kids, you will want to take a look at Be aware of what it is.

Then take a look at this L.A. Times article about how sexual predators use sites like MySpace. Thanks for this to Hugh Hewitt, who says:

This story should be read over the loudspeakers of every junior and senior high school in America. MySpace isn't going away, but kids should know who's reading their journals.
Absolutely right.

We shouldn't fear technology. There are going to be creeps around all the time. Myspace is not the problem. The problem is the pedophiles.

That's the point exactly, Harold: Know what is there, technologically. Then deal with it. But the technology cannot (and should not) be stopped. It creates tools for good purposes and tools for bad guys. We just need to have our eyes open to how it's being used.
