Supergenius vs. the giggling Googlers

So Princess Jaycie’s friends have discovered the magic of Google and how you can type in your friends’ names and find out stuff about them. They have also discovered that when you type in Jaycie and press enter you can get to in no time flat. Also, Jaycie’s Aunt Jodi, she swears.

According to Sister #2, Jaycie came home from school today a bit distraught because her friends had told her that Aunt Jodi had written H-E-L-L on her blog. Jaycie couldn’t say the word, she could only spell it.

Fuck. The poor kid is not only cursed with an easily googleable name but with an aunt who curses.

Sister #2 said she was more alarmed that Jaycie’s ten-year-old friends were rampantly googling around the Internet without parental supervision than she was about anything I might have written about the Princess here.

“No offense,” she said. “But I would die if the kids were reading without telling me.”
“I don’t write anything bad about the kids,” I said.
“It’s not what you write about the kids that worries me, it’s everything else. What if they read some sort of sex stuff?”
“Oh god, I would die.”

She told me not to worry about it. That her kids know better then to read and that she e-mailed some of the parents to warn them about how my blog might not be appropriate for their daughters. She also talked with Jaycie about it and told her she had nothing to be ashamed of or worried about.

Max, of course, thinks that Jaycie is worrying needlessly, because, they can’t help it if they’re famous on the Internet.

“Max is trying to get his friends to google him so they can see for themselves how famous he is,” she said.

    I was first inclined to write some sort of diatribe about censoring kids from the real world, violence, and sex, but decided against it. I will say that at the age of 10, she’s probably seen more sex and violence on TV (including cartoons) than we’d be comfortable fathoming. Watch Disney channel or Nickelodeon for a day… I’ll bet there’s more sex implied there than on a single page of
