Today 4/14/08 Yahoo is running an e-news feature about parents spying on their children.
This is evidence of moral decline, where Yahoo is pretending to be qualified and justified to make moral judgments about parenting.
The issue glances the legal issues about how much control over and responsibility for children that parents have.
The practical problem is, the anonymous people at Yahoo will be no where in evidence, when any particular kids get in trouble, and do limitless damage to other people up to and including murder and larceny. In my home town, two teens robbed and bludgeoned an 83-old woman to death, when they were hopped up on drugs.
This is freedom?
