Default Answered: Parent Reassurance? Help:(

My parents really don't like me being here one WI They think that I'm not safe here, and that somehow personal information will be given out. It won't. WI is basically as safe as my own house! With the amount of Moderators and Admins here, WI is perfectly fine. I want to prove to them that WI is an awesome place. But...I'm kinda hesitant at brigning up the subject. What if I show them around here, and they won't let me on anymore? I do have ton of arguments, but I think the only one that will work is because of the amount of friends I have. I have no one to hand out with in my neighborhood. No one. Besides this one other monthly meeting a few friends across town, WI is basically my playground full of friends. I can't risk my parents banning the website from all the computers, I wouldn't be able to stand the summer without anyone to chat or RP with!

PLEASE post suggestions on how to prove to my parents that WI is an awesome safe place!

The best thing to do is to ask your parents to both visit the site, there are all age groups here and they might actually enjoy visiting with other members. I think once they look around they will be more than happy that you spend your time here. Be sure to show them some of your favorite threads then go do something else while they look around so they can talk to each other freely and discuss any concerns they may have. Once they check out the site you will be better able to discuss the site together and honestly I don't think they will ban you from coming here as long as you follow the guidelines in the rules you will be safe.

Just show them around the site. They'll see that there is nothing inappropriate.

Why don't you actually ask a mod if like your parent could go on your acct. and then have your mom or dad browse around AND pm the mod and ask how things work, and show them examples of posts?

The internet can be very unsafe. But if you do not give out personal information you should be fine. Actually, any forum can find out personal information. All forums usually have a way that staff can figure out every users IP Address. Your IP can make people find out where you live. But WI does background checks on all their staff. You should just not share personal information with other members. The internet can be unsafe, but if you learn not to give out personal information or go to unsafe sites, you should be fine. Show your parents these threads.

Tell them you wont give out your personal information such as your name, phone, etc. That'll help them trust you. They're just worried and want to keep you safe! So respect your parents decisions. There is also a way that parents can figure out every site you go to or something like that. They could check everyday to make sure your safe. You could tell them that...

They may not want you on because how much time you spend up here (my moms reason) As long as you don't give away any info. you are very safe. The WI staff is very good at catching people who are asking for information. As long as you report people who ask for stuff, you will be safe.
PS. If you show your parents around show them the thread that shows how the staff has been background checked.

I'd let your parents look around WI: look at all of your posts, your profile, etc... and see for themselves that there's nothing for them to be concerned about. When it comes to your safety they aren't going to want to rely solely on your word. Not because they don't believe you but they might feel that you aren't mentioning negative things.

I agree with everything you said. The internet is very unsafe with how easy it is to find personal information, therefore if your parents are that concerned they should ban the whole internet (not saying that they should, lol). WI is very safe and I think you should let your parents browse the site a bit.
