To be honest 13 year olds are too young to be given facebook accounts, email accounts, uncontrolled access to the internet, smart phones etc without some form of parental supervision and control. It sounds a bit Big Brotherish, but I would prefer to be a bit Orwellian and ensure my kids aren’t exposed to some of the crap going around. There are kids under 16 that are texting round explicit pictures and video of kids a similar age and have been charged with distributing child pornography. This activity and things like sexting is fairly common place. These are normal, everyday 13, 14 year olds that are being charged and convicted of child pornography. So things like mobile phones, social networking sites etc really do need some parental control.
