It's Mine!

It's my blog and I can talk about whatever I want. I usually focus on mildy amusing things that happen to me and/or swimbikerun, but today I came across this and found it very interesting.

I'm curious as to what other people think about children with technology and/or free speech. There are two sides to every coin and repercussions to every action.

I think I lean towards the camp of "I have the right to say what I want but you don't have the right to not be offended". Obviously there are exceptions to this rule, but in general, this is where I lean.

I don't think a 7 year old should have unrestricted access to the internet, but I also think the nieghbor is a rude idiot. This being said, I don't think the neighbor should be REQUIRED to change his wifi name. Should be change it to be polite? Probably. But should he be required to? I don't think so.

I'm intrigued.

I'd probably ask the guy to change it, but really at some point you have to teach your kids about certain words that you can't say. I am scared to have kids for this reason amongst many others, but really there's no way your kid can go 7 years in life without hearing "the queen mother of all dirty words" is there?
