Here I have been worrying and wondering what he (Man Child) is up to on the computer.
I have been studying the history - convinced that he is going somewhere he shouldn't. He's constantly tap-tap-tapping away; more so than even me.
Whenever I ask - he tells me that he is doing nothing. Yeah right. Like those words don't send a mother's antennae up immediately.
I know he's not posting on FaceBook or MySpace (unless he's blocked me; which I don't doubt that he has - I will find a way around that). And, like I've said, I've scoured the history, deleted files, etc.
I can find no evidence of malfeasance.
I know, I know. I should give him a bit of privacy. And I do. But it's like pulling teeth over here trying to get anything out of him. I ask him who he went to the gym with and he responds with, "A classmate." Really? I dare to ask the classmate's name and he acts like I am the Gestapo torturing him for information.
So yes, as his mother, I would like to know what he's up to online. It's MY JOB.
Well, I think I may have discovered it.
He mentioned to his father, who mentioned it to me, that he had posted something on a football (soccer to you folks across the pond) website and it was featured. So, of course, I read it. I didn't understand a word of it. But it was extremely well written.
And, of course, I did a little digging. Again - it's my job!
Apparently, this forum also encourages each "follower" (for lack of the proper term) to create their own profile and blog.
My son, apparently following in his mother's footsteps, has his own little blog on this forum. And has posted several columns (including the one that was featured) and has created his own little online group.
I'm so proud.
