Well, there is still time to stop the stupidest bill in recent memory: Senate Bill 59, which would require a "social networking site" to notify parents before children create a page on their service.

Senate Bill 59, introduced by state Sen. Cecil Staton, R-Macon, also would force the operators of those Web sites to allow parents access to their children's profiles.

However, the bill doesn't specify how notification or access would be done, leaving it to the private sector to come up with the solutions.

The bill also has no provision about children who lie about their birthdate when they register for the site.

Why is it that lawmakers believe they have to be everybody's third parent? If you are worried about what your children might be exposed to while online, don't let them online until you trust them to be online. I have three children, ages 8,6 and 4. They do not watch TV (except occassional sports with their father), they do not watch videos and they to not use the computer. I do not need any help raising my children. Thank you.
