Ammo for parents concerned about MySpace, Website for The Kim Komando Radio Show®, Kim's Tips

I've done my best to emphasize the dangers of social networking sites like I've written about it and talked about it a lot. It's one of the most popular sites among teens and claims well over 50 million members.

For the most part, parents get the message. But warnings may not be enough to convince the kids to be safe. I've received a lot of e-mail from concerned and frustrated parents who have tried talking with their children. Teens can be especially skeptical of parental advice.
