Hello. Ok, this is bothering me, I am not aloud to do anything on the net. They will not let me:
*Have an email accound
*Go on chat
*Download planes for fs2002
*Get Yahoo Mess.
*Can't make my own website
to sum it up--
* No contact w/ other people (yup they don't know about this)

I've been deleting the history after I am done with the chat and have a secret email account, which I delete the history after I am done w/ that. My neighbors devoriced becuase the husband had an affare with a women on the net, and he keeps on meeting up w/ people from chats etc, they think me, a 15 year old will do the same as a 30 year old, who, not to be rude, is not all there up stairs, he had many brain problems... I am wondering if you (teens/parents) do the samething. I thing is EVERYONE AT MY SCHOOL WITH A COMPUTER HAS YAHOO MESSENGER, AN EMAIL ACCOUNT, MSN etc. They want me to make friends, and all that but will not me do it on the internet. Comments, help!?

Thanks
Andre

Dude. I think you are paying the price for someone else's mistakes. Someone not even in yoru family. All I can think of for you to do is just deal with it, and live on the net in Stealth Mode, or try and fight your parents on the issue. Should you choose to fight, you have to find an adult, grown up way to talk to your parents about this. You have to be diplomatic, and come off like you know what you are talking about.

Yeah, its the same as paedophiles, if someones dumb enough to be taken in by a 50yo pretending to be a 12yo, thats their problem!

that sucks, my parents still think everyone on the internet are paedophiles, because of what they hear on internet/TV.

The internet will not help you make friends. To do that you have to go outside, hang out, and stay off the computer as much as possible.
I think the only rule my parents had was not to look up porn. I have meet a few very nice people from the internet, however I was very careful about meeting them. There are certainly risks involved in meeting people on the internet, you are essentially meeting a stranger. I am not planning on meeting anyone else on the internet, I just do not think it is that good of an idea.

Okay, you should never let anyone, that includes your parents, tell you what to do. They obviously dont know what they're talking about (internet/pedophiles..etc) so you'll have to make the decision to go against them openly if you feel that you are being oppressed by them. Dont get me wrong, im not some rebellious kid or whatever, but i wont let anyone tell me what to do without good reason.

Give me a break Bombstar. As a kid growing up, your parents tell you what to do, because thats how you learn and grow as a person. At KLM's age, is when one should start to think on his own, and while is parents may tell him something, he should me able to mix in his own thoughts and experiences.

This is really a non-issue IMO.

You spoiled, obnoxious ingrate spoiled little bastard you are.

As long as you are living under your parents roof, eating their food, watching their TV, and enjoying all of the little 'niceties' and amenities that they have paid for (including THEIR computer), you have absolutely no right whatsoever to complain.

If you don't like their rules, then you are free to leave. Or you can stay and enjoy everything. You can't have it both ways.

If you are a minor and can't afford to get a job and live on your own, then you have no argument.

Matt D. You gotta lotta balls, errrr maybe lack there of. You, IYO opinion diss this kid, over more or less a valid issue. Yet isn't it you that pretty much every other week are on here posting about your latest failure errrrrr problems with a chick? How you met one shick, but like her roommate. Or you met some chick, who actually likes you and wanted to sleep in your bed and you were annoyed by this. Or you got this one chick, but it took too long to blow her up, or blah Blah BLAH. Well IMO you are no different that this kid you are insulting, because YOU post all your "trivial" women troubles and crap up here too.

Whoa, that's pretty harsh. You really don't know that he hasn't earned money and paid for his own computer; you're just making that assumption. But I don't think that's really an issue anyway. I think that if he feels that a rule is unfair, he should have the right to at least talk to his parents about it. Surely just talking can cause no harm... They may not know how he feels, in which case a calm, civilized discussion would help. But isn't it a bit presumptuous to call him a "spoiled, obnoxious ingrate spoiled little bastard?" (Oh, and slightly off the subject, but I'm a bit curious-- why'd you say spoiled twice?)

How do they monitor your computer activities so much? I never had that problem because I bought every computer I've ever owned and my parents couldn't (and probably wouldn't) interfere. Its too bad your parents don't have any trust in you...or maybe they're just paranoid.

And BTW...don't forget to clean out the cookies too!

Matt D, KROC

You guys dont know me, I pay for a lot of my own things, and this isnt a issue about how you use your parents resources (computer/tv/whatever) this is an issue of parents trying to control your lives, (e.g friends...etc). In my mind, it is none of anyone elses business, and I will do what i want to do, even if i have no computer, tv, whatever, i can live with that, but not with anyone telling me what to do. KROC you really need to get over things, you still wont get off my back, i dont care anymore, i never insult you in any way, maybe its time you think about what your saying.

Ur parents suck.
I could have beaten the living hell out of my parents when I came out with cigarettes in front of them and they told me I'd either stop or they wouldn't let me go out in the weekends.
I could beat the living hell out of my parents when they tell me to get offline every evening.
I could beat the living hell out of my parents when they preach to me about the unimportance of a relationship at 15 years of age.
Otherwise I get on really well with my parents. Actually I'm exaggerating things a bit with beating the living hell out of my parents but we do have arguments sometimes.... often really. But that's a normal part of growing up I guess.
KLM672, ur parents are paranoid and should see a shrink.

Bombstar, your presence is insulting. Or maybe thats revolting. Either way, when your 10 years old, and growing up. You listen to your parents, because thats what kids do. You haven't learned anything. It's obvious. I feel sorry for your parents.

Thanks for all the responces. Yup, this is not my computer, although I did put $100 or so into buying it and i pay for half when we get it repaired etc. I would love to get out, but I live on a dirt road out in the "boones" of Vermont, USA. All my friends are 20 minutes away (driving), and I bet they are online as much, on the chat using their email etc. When I do talk to my friends and tell them that I maybe on and off at times, because I hear my parents feet coming up the stairs they think its weird that I can't do anything on the net. Before all my neighbors problems my parents would let me and my cousin go on the chats they would let me go fly on the zone, talk to people (with roger wilco, which is a talking by voice program) and then it seemed like all of a suddent that they would not let me do anything on the net. I guess they think I just look at airplane pictures here on airliners.net or something. I really wonder what they think I do.
Thanks again, will write more later...

KROC,
Whatever man  Insane You obviously dont know me very well. When a kid like KLM is being oppressed to that extent, you can't expect anyone to just sit there and take that sh*t. I know a girl thats 15, she's so over-protected, she's not allowed on the phone, or in her backyard, and she doesnt have many friends. What the hell is that? Seriously, you are not in the kind of position to debate about this topic if you havent experienced anything as extreme as what ive just described.

Your parents are being overly protective. I grew up before the internet was invented and didn't know anyone who could give me advice towards becoming a professional pilot. I made some mistakes that might have been prevented if I had a mentor. I've met a few kids from the computer and it's always been okay....you have to use extra caution but, as a 15 year old, you are old enough to take care of yourself in a public situation. It looks like you ignored MattD's comments....good choice. I'm on MSN messenger if you happen to download it.

Whiners get their way...and this forum is absolutely chock full of whiners these days. If I wanted to hear this cry baby shit, I would go back to Jr. High school. "Girls don't like me, my parents discipline me..." boo hoo hoo. As a parent, let me tell you that if you really are as smart as you think you are, move out and take care of yourself while you still know everything. Until you are ready to do that, you are obligated to abide by your parents edicts...out of respect if nothing else. You could try something like a little bit of graditude for the things your parents do do for you. For instance, I doubt you bought that computer yourself, did you?

Wow, you are unlucky! My parents let me set up an E-Mail account when I was quite young! They just told me not to give my name and address which I didn't except to sign up for a few services here and there. (Just half of my name). My mom even encourages me to set up a webpage! Well, my family is quite Tech-Savy. There are 5 of us. Normally 4 of us use the computers. Mostly it's Me and my mom use the computers. But we still need 2 computers with internet. Sometimes that's even not enough! Big grin I'm telling you, my family loves the computer! Big thumbs up
