My boy just turned 10 and while I don't helicopter parent him, my husband and I do monitor his media usage. We got him a watch phone so he can call and text us and family we've approved. It gives him a lot of freedom to run around with his friends in the neighborhood, but he can't just talk to anyone. I want him to be a little boy as long as possible. I know I can't protect his little heart and brain forever, I can try.

Please look at his internet history every single day! The results you find may amaze you ......

He uses the tv in our livingroom (we have it hooked up to a computer, idk my husband is techy) and I sit in the same room so I see everything he does.
