Many parents and grandparents of teens are mystified when it comes to things like friends lists, comment sections and blogs.So checking up on your child’s MySpace and Xanga Internet activities may seem difficult.Now some geeky California parents have decided to do it all for you.Using information provided by the parents, BeNetSafe engineers scour the Internet to find networking sites where a child might be registered. In a report sent daily, weekly or monthly, parents can find warning flags such as whether their children list themselves as smokers or drinkers or whether their friends list includes people who seem suspicious.
