My Thought on the road of life


http://edventureproject.com/mental-meanderings-questions-about-parenthood/

The above link has a great piece on the worries of parenting and Internet issues. 

>On the subject of the internet i feel 

The young are venturing into a new world and for some of us older people, running so fast we struggle to keep up :-)  Though I try, I am lucky I have young kids and plenty of time to learn before their teenagers!    
I do worry that the stuff kids say and do online now will effect them so much more now and also later on in life, when I was growing up the problems we had to face stayed with friends and family, it wasn't spread all over the web, and we wasn't judged by strangers which can be hurtful and scary for some. 
A prime example .....There was a article early  this year a young 16 yr old girl had got a very good job as first young commissioner for the British police, but lost it,  because people found out she had said some racist remarks to friends and other stuff, on line some two years age most properly just stuff talked about between friends but everyone could read it so this effected her later on... 
I try to teach that the Internet though wonderful is a whole new world full of dangers as well as wonders. where you have to be as carfull venturing as you do when you step out the front door. Giving as much help and guidance as I can. 


>Parenting For me its not just parenting that makes me query what we are doing but also the fact that I educate my kids at home this also raises lots of worries in me as to how I bring up my kids, and to top that the fact that I am also  planing long term travels with all those extra worries to contend with what joy lol.....lucky I'm. A relaxed person and don't let them effect me for long.
.my anxieties are just something I have to work through and hope as others we are doing ok, and my kids will benefit from the life and love we give them. 
An enjoyable article thankyou.
