    How many young folks under the age of 30 do you know who are very tech savy, but at the same time, have enough wisdom to avoid the pitfalls of computers such as posting too much information about themselves on myspace, conversing with total strangers and then meeting them for dates, etc....

    I taught 6-8 grade for 5 years. In that time, I was amazed at how much the children knew about the computers. Some of them even taught me a thing or two. But, your question brings a great point. I think that it boils down to a problem that almost all kids have...they are too trusting.

    It's so sad to say that in today's world this is a bad quality trait.

    I am right now trying to teach my four year old that any person she does not know is a stranger....and I say stranger = danger. Do NOT talk to them unless mommy or daddy are with you. But what does she do when the first stranger we come to sparks up a conversation with her...she acts like they're her best friend.

    Also, I think young people (especially junior high/high school) are craving for anyone to care about them (especially the kids I had...with parents who are too busy or stand-offish). Unfortunately, their attempt for making friends will probably bring about the wrong kind.
