My daughter has just started getting into playing VMK. I've never played so I'm learning about it through her. I'm kind of concerned about the chat feature in VMK, though.
Last night she came to me freaked out that someone asked her to be his girlfriend, and she didn't know what to do. I'm really concerned that this kind of talk is going on at a Disney site. Yeah, I'm a little over protective, but my daughter is only 9! It could be some 50 year old guy talking to her!
I've taught her to be very responsible on the computer, she knows not to give any personal info out, not go to any sites that I haven't pre-approved, etc. I know that VMK has certain words blocked out so you can't discuss really personal things, but there are always ways around that if you're creative enough. I'm really worried about this.
What do you guys think? Is VMK safe enough for my daughter to chat on? Am I WAY overreacting? Should I sit WITH her and watch every time she plays VMK?
I appreciate your advice!
