"When it comes to her daughter's access to technology, Sarah is very strict: no phone, no social media, no personal computer. The family computer is connected to the TV in the middle of the living room and - no surprise - is locked down with parental controls."

In other words, how to smother any sort of life-learning.

Sorry, just read a bit more

"Sarah was quick to confiscate the iPad the moment her daughter was done with her homework at the end of the day"

No wonder the daughter is so curious..........

She is going to be the first girl in her class to get pregnant.

It is the devils tablet after all. Thats why there is an apple on it, satan is trying tempt her with forbidden fruit/knowledge. True story.

Here's the problem:  "Sarah said she made the discovery checking the iPad's browser history. "

Why isn't the school teaching these kids to cover their tracks?  That's something that will be beneficial to them later in life.

FTA:

"I was shocked!" Sarah said. "It was not something you expect a 12-year-old to look at, or to talk about, or to want to do or anything. She's still a little girl."

wow, Mom is just going to remain in denial that her daughter is starting puberty and growing up, that's healthy

is this the mom?

Wait wait, you mean sequestering your snowflake, and 'protecting them' from sex causes them to grow up knowing nothing about it but what their friends whisper...and then you're SHOCKED when they want more of it?

She's not just your little girl you ignorant coontwaffle, she's a human being. THIS JUST IN: HUMANS LIKE SEX!

There's erotica on the Internet?

Or, Sarah's daughter needs to meet a nerdy boy her own age. Getting through parental controls is nothing.

It's almost like if you raise your child like a veal, they will use their wobbly little legs to try to move toward the faintest bit of freedom and away from you as quickly as possible.

Ah the old "If I keep her directly under my control for the duration of her life at home, she will be programmed to not be wild when she leaves." Which would work if humans were robots and not beings with rebellion pretty much wired into our DNA. She's gonna have fun when her daughter hits about 15 or 16 and the hormones really kick in.
 
2014-08-27 07:42:16 AM  
If you give a kid something that is capable of doing a given thing, they will not rest until they learn to use it to do that thing.  Be glad it's not a frigging chainsaw.  12 is a very good age to learn what the world is hypocritical about.  She's probably already been spanking her muffin for a couple years at least.  Do you really want her to turn 18 and see the world as a dick smorgasbord that she suddenly has a ticket to cause "mommy can't tell me what to do anymore"?

My god. The child was *GASP* Reading!!!111?

I am shocked, Shocked.
 
2014-08-27 07:46:52 AM  
Stick and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.

There are a lot of physical situations that a child should not be exposed to, but I'm having a hard time imagining a situation on a computer that would really be harmful.   If a child isn't prepared for what they are reading/seeing on a computer, and they don't like it, they can stop.   Even if they have a hard time stopping the program, they can walk away.   Yes, they need to make sure whatever they are doing doesn't turn into a real life physical situation, be it theft of money/identity or meeting someone you talked to online, but locking down a computer as hard as the mother is going to cause a lot more problems than it solves.


Also, any bets on whether the "erotica" is just a normal pre-teen story that never goes deeper than kissing?

"She was reading erotica - along with a lot of the other kids," Sarah said.

"Where did you learn to read erotica?"

Lady, some lucky boy is is really going to appreciate your parenting style when your daughter turns sixteen and figures out all the fun she can have with her naughty bits.  I hope he's a really good guy who knows about condoms.

/Reminds me of a young woman I knew in the Bible Belt.  I hold her in great respect,  and treasure the memories she gave me despite a "proper Christian upbringing" on her part.
 
2014-08-27 07:51:23 AM  
Erotica? All I can find is porn.

There is something to be said for 12 year old kids not parsing site after site full of burro shows, 6 way bukkake fests and chicks with a baseball bat up their flue.  A lot, actually.  I mean, they really don't need that crap.  "Erotic literature"?  Yeah that's pretty normal.

"I found out she had an email account and was sending pictures of herself and having relations online," Sarah said.

Oh my!  Having relations!

It's strange that there would be problems with technology in this apparent Amish family.

To be fair, the mom sounds like the sort of dingbat who thinks Judy Blume and Salinger wrote porn.  The poor kid could be reading Star Wars and gotten to the part where Leia kisses Luke and Mummy Dearest would think it is erotica.

A lot of reasons?  Why?   The vast majority of people, kids or not, will think "Ewww" and click away.   It isn't going to scar them for life.

I guess it is really important to teach your kids that you can and *should* just click away when you don't like something, be it weird sex or bullying, or whatever.   Teach them how to be in control and how to be safe so that online stuff doesn't turn into RL stuff.

I have no idea what I'm going to do when I have a kid that gets to be this age. I don't want to be ridiculous helicopter parent like this lady, but I feel like I should probably do *something*.

Sure, my parents didn't block anything, but at that time our dial-up was so slow that it took a couple of minutes to download just one high-res picture. If I had access to the pornsplosion we have now back then, I'd have died from blood loss to my brain in a week.

I'm assuming there was no nudity or she'd probably be trying to get child sex charges against her classmate email buddy.  This can't be from this school year.  Why are we just hearing about it now?

Law & Order SVU taught me that that is kiddie porn. Of course, that same episode taught me that judges get significant kickbacks for sending kids to prison...

Is erotica like porn if was written down? That's the stuff you have to look at when your partner is asleep by your side? Or is that mine porn?

Her mom sounds certifiable.  Of course, erotica on computers when I was young was mainly the first edition of Leisure Suit Larry.

How come I never see anything in the news about messed up kids raping Storks?  You know how retard parents afraid of talking about sex say a Stork brought you?  Wouldn't that have made the kids think you're supposed to have sex with storks or birds and bees.

What worked for me; lots of nature shows and classical art from about age 4 on.  By the time the connection is being made that those nekkid bodies from the Greek, Roman, and neo-classical sculpture can fit together the way the mummy aardvark and the daddy aardvark did when they were forming babbie, it isn't a shock.  By 12, a kid, boy or girl as it has two users, should understand the theory behind a condom.

Hey she will probably be way more freaky than that she might even bring her new girlfriend home for thanksgiving.

16???

The kid is 12. She's already getting attention from boys.

Thanks to her "there's no such thing as sex" mom, she's going to be very curious about what the big deal is, and she's going to believe the first jerk-off senior who tells her she can't get pregnant if she's on top.
 
2014-08-27 08:19:25 AM  
I feel really bad for that girl.  I just hope that she gets deprogrammed before her life gets screwed up too badly.


Also, I noticed at the bottom of the article, that LA was suspending a plan to give iPads to *all* of their students.  I'm not surprised that they are suspending it -- but -- hasn't every attempted mass technology rollout of this type tried by a school system gone horribly wrong?

Back in the day, when porn pics took 2-3 minutes to download, and AOL kick programs were all the rage to mess with your AIM buddies, there was text based porn.

It wasn't pretty, and sometimes disturbing, but it got the job done.
