If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

Welcome to my new blog! I've been lecturing the children of late on the potential dangers of blogging and here I am starting my own blog.

My oldest has been blogging for a couple of years now and it has been a good experience for the most part. However, after his two younger siblings joined the blogging world a few problems popped up.

If your children blog, make sure to read their blogs, as well as the comments left, every single day. Occasionally leave a comment, not only at their blog but at their friends' blogs. It's good to let them know that they're being monitored. If you can't do that, it would be better not to let them blog at all. You'll also need to talk to them periodically about Internet safety.

So, my children continue to blog with their mother watching them like a hawk. Now who's going to watch the mother?

St. Blog folk will keep an eye on you, Maureen, keep you honest and out of hot water.

Checking on our kids blog(s) is good advice. First step: ask you kids how many blogs they have. Most have more than one!

And I know that you'll help out St. Blog Nancy in keeping me in line ;-).

Also, parents, make sure to click on the links of the commenters at your children's blogs.
