Why don't you invite your parents to open an account too. I know several people that have their accounts and they actually communicate with their parents on here too. Let them read all the rules too. Personal info is a big big no no on here.
My parents are internet safety FREAKS! So how have I remained on so long? I let them read through the FAQs and policy statements about WI, I let them browse around the forum, and I promised that I know and am aware that there are bad people on the internet, and so I should never ever give out personal information.
Those are my tips. Your parents really just want to make sure you're safe, so just show them things that will convince them that this is probably the safest forum on the internet.
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.
I had a similar situation, but-it had nothing to do with my parents, it had to do with my DH. When I first began using this site, he was pretty curious..he was always asking me "who are you talkng to", "what are you writing", "blah-blah"-stuff like that...I pretty much forced him to look around this site for himself, &, ya know what? He has NEVER mentioned it to me since!
I'm so sory your parents think WI isn't a safe place! You could show them the staff's profiles, your profile, your posts, show them around like the RP section, and your favorite sections. Let them read through the rules, and tell them you aren't going to reveal personal information. Show them this thread: http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...y-kids-510729/ and how JacksMom edited the age of her daughter. It is very safe. Good luck!
I'm a mom. I let my dd on here to look around, because I feel it is really very safe. I would just let her come on and check it out. Also, a way is to let her know your username, and password, so that she can check every once in a while and see what is going on. Good luck!
