I am curious to see how people handle things like children's access to the internet when the child has multiple houses. Different rules for different houses? Parents reach a consensus? Are people putting this sort of thing in parenting agreements these days?
We had a situation last week, where I was toodling around on facebook and suddenly received a friend request from 8 yo DSD. We have a week on/week off situation, and she was at her mom's last week. On one hand, she is too young (I believe facebook rules say that you have to be 13). OTOH, I know that a few of the girls in my Girl Scout troop are on it (they are her age). I mentioned it to DH, who was irritated - he was very adamant that she does not need a facebook profile. He was also annoyed that DSD's mom would allow this to happen without discussing it with him first as he felt that internet presence is something that should be discussed between parents.
He called DSD's mom, and it turned out that her sister helped her make the page for fun, but DSD's mom was not planning on allowing her to keep it, so everything worked out just fine. The page is now gone.
I do wonder what would have happened had DSD's mom disagreed with DH. My guess is that he would have contacted facebook and had them take it down. It seems like we very likely will have other issues like this pop up sooner rather than later - hopefully everyone agrees, but what if they do not? Technology these days opens up a whole new set of questions (facebook, email, cell phones, smart phones) - how do people answer these, especially when the parents do not agree)?
