I’m not saying everyone, I’m speaking of my own personal experience and how I wish it could be the same for my children but it’s not. Trust me, I’ve considered using the internet filters or having no internet at all but I think children get to a certain age, especially later teenage years when they are not so much children anymore but their own person and it’s tough for me as a parent because I want to protect them from everything but I can’t, not because I’m incapable of doing so but because it’s wrong of me to take away their experiences as long as they are safe.

Thanks for reading and sharing your insight. I enjoy hearing different perspectives. I enjoy learning from others.
