      Is your son’s profile public? because if it’s not unless you have his

      password there is no way you’ll be able to see his all account… You

      would be able to see his comments that were left for him if it were

      public but you still wouldn’t be able to see his emails. that being

      said, at some point you just have to trust him… Myspace is about as

      safe as any social networking place in my opinion. I have an account

      to keep up with family and I got all kinds of hassle from several

      people because I chose to keep it when stuff started to come out. My

      account has been hacked (password stolen) twice in the 2(?) years

      I’ve had my account and I figured it out before anything could be

      done to my account. NOW when that happens, your account gets frozen

      until you change your password. Although some damage can still be

      done – atleast you know it’s been hacked and can fix it. As for the

      friend’s son… if they really wanted to keep something a secret it’s

      really not that hard because if you check myspace he could use

      facebook, if you check those, there will always be something new. or

      like some one else said – he could have whole other profile you don’t

      even know about. There just comes a point when you just have to trust

      that you raised him right.

      > I have a 16 yr old who is limited on the internet. He needs a

      password to get on to the computer. At times when he insists on

      going on the internet and I won’t let him, he goes off to his room or

      in the tub. At that time I can’t seem to find his psp. i am

      wondering if he is able to use it to get on myspace/internet. we

      have wireless internet service. he is overall a good kid. i know

      his whereabouts, no substence abuse, is in sports and is now working,

      does well in school, etc. and then there is that but. his sister

      who is now 20 tells me every now and then that if I had not kept a

      close eye on her, she doesn’t know where she would be today.


      > Also is myspace safer these days. He has it set up that only those

      he allows to be his friends can go on. I would like to be able to go

      on and check it every now and then, but I don’t want him to know that

      I’m doing it. The reason is a friend of mine knows someone who’s son

      had a secret relationship with a gay adult for 2 years and the father

      (an attorney) and mom (a nurse) didn’t have a clue. We have all

      heard stories about internet and I don’t want to be sorry later. I

      would like to be able to trust my kids at all times, but to me that

      is not a good choice. Please don’t tell me that I should because it

      is not going to happen here, I have tried it. How can I go on his

      myspace and check it. I have access to his e mails, but they don’t

      use that much these days. Also if he finds out that I’m checking his

      myspace he can open another myspace account.
