I'm dabbling in this Facebook jazz since it's a way to learn before my child becomes a teenager in less than 5 short years from now = D. Some of her friends already have Facebook accounts. I have told her the only way I will consider it is if we always work on it together, so she can learn while I'm with her. I want to find out from the parents who do allow children to have pages at this age why they decided to permit them to do so. If it is to teach them on-line responsibility and encourage creativity, all while under adult supervision, it seems to make sense.
