Shielded internet for your teenager.

Postby Lambert » Tue, 19 May 2009 6:54 pm

My teenaged son has his won email account. I would like to have access to his account so that I am aware of all his communication he has with his friends and also the rest of his internet activities. I am on the lookout for one such email service provider who will give me this facility.

Great measure of trust you have built up with your son. He'll hate your guts well into his 40's, if not long after that.

He's growing... when will you let go?... and have you done such a $hitty job to date that you can trust him with nothing?

does indeed beg the question of trust.

And there are so many ways to communicate it'd be a full time job to monitor them all. ( email' web based mail gmail etc, messenger, face book etc) Not to mention SMS's
If you ever did act upon anything you'd "found out" he'd shut down that line of comms anyway.
Pointless to even try and monitor.
Nope....you're just going to have to learn to trust him and instill a sense of responsibility :roll:

Good luck with that . You clearly have issues

try to educate him instead of being a control freak.
As SE said, do you realize that if he find out what you did, he will hate for a long long time?

Besides how do you plan to use the information you found about his private internet life wihout being noticed? He will figure out what you did very quickly, you will lose his trust, and you'll never have another glimpse in his life again.

obvious commercial post....

And i'll add that these guys have a twisted mind to create such a software.
Controlling without telling is the worst.
