For some Mac fans reading this, their Mac is almost like their child.
However, for those of us who have both children and Macs, we have to take responsibility for educating and protecting our children on the computer. This was never made clearer to me than one late night a few months back.
My daughter was upstairs on her computer and my wife and I were downstairs watching a movie. First my daughter called down asking for her mothers birth date. Then, two minutes after getting the answer, she called down and asked for the year. I asked my daughter why she needed to know. She replied, just asking.
Her mother shouted the answer before I could stop her. I paused the movie and said, we have to go see what our girl is up to, because I had a suspicion she was giving out my wifes information online. We were met on the stairs by an ecstatic ten year old that told us she had just won a free pizza. All she had to do was give them all her moms personal information.
