Lydia's blog

A month ago I set up a blog for my daughter to help her with her English, but also to give a sense that we live in a wider world. When she sees the comments people leave on her blog or checks out the counter she realises that there is a whole, wide world beyond the boundaries of her neighbourhood.

So check out this week's thrilling episode of BarbieForever2007.

I've done the same for my daughter, but I 'm little scared because there are so many internet morons out there. It's nice when children learning how to Internet - communicate on an early age. Children are angels into a devil world :) Sometimes as a daddy I am not sure how to assist my daughter to protect herself, to survive, to cope and be strong.

I agree that there are a lot of idiots and unsavory types on the net, but with a bit of common sense and lots of supervision we can let children learn using blogs and the like. The risks are far outweighed by the benefits of raising kids who feel comfortable using new technologies.

Besides, if we don't teach this stuff to our own kids who will? The schools, which are mired in the logic and practices of the 1950's ?
