I think that if people are being taken advantage of on this site, its due to their own stupidity.My 11yo daughter got on this site without permission.They are going to do it one way or another if they want.Probably, shouldn't be so over-protective or all your hair will fall out!PARENTS NEED TO WATCH WHAT THEIR CHILDREN ARE DOING INSTEAD OF JUST LETTING THEM DO WHAT THEY WANT.
You can't be there all the time and it's up to you to warn them ahead of time of the consequences of the decisions they could make.
My aunt also use's it and it is a great way for us to keep in touch and a lot of other close friends.
She allows her children to use it and controls everything they do on IMVU.
You don't have to buy all the crap that they have on there.
PARENTS YOU SHOULD GET YOUR CHILDREN OFF THE COMPUTER ANYWAYS AND FIND THEM A HOBBY!!!
