There was just a news item about this type of thing in Seattle (just in general). Showed a dad playing the game with his kids, and wearing headsets to talk/listen with the other players. They said the average age for the war game stuff is 32 or something!
In the news thing, the dad said the kids can only play when he is around, and if he isn’t playing the sound goes on the speakers.
Still - hard to watch kids all the time, and over at friend’s with less rules, etc.
The only thing my kids have is facebook - and mom has their passwords, etc. and looks on once in awhile. Oh - and the computer she and the kids use is in the living room. They do have laptops for school-work that has pandora music on them. (They are sooooooo deprived!)
And they still find ways to get in trouble.
Exactly! My 13 year old, (who is very good friends with the 12 year old in question) has a GPS on her phone & iPod, her computer is networked to my computer so I can log in and see exactly what she’s doing from a diffrent room when she is totally unaware. She STILL finds a way around it. And once the school had to call me and the damn principal says,”we’ll didn’t you know she and her friends were doing this?”. It’s like, “uh...no. If I did I woulda stopped it. And if you dig a little closer into the situation, none of this happened at MY house. But I’ll be glad to smack her around and deprive her of food and lock her in the house, all of which will cause you to call OCY on me and have her taken away.”
