Subject: Advisory Committee on Online Access and Security - Comment, P004807,

It should be up to parents to police their kids on the internet, not you. My son and daughter are now being kicked off many web sites who do not wish to deal with parental permission slips for children under the age of 13, even though I give my full permission to use their web site. My children both use the internet to talk to each other friends and family. They will no longer be able to communicate with each other via the internet without using a bloated, hard to use service, or long distance phone calls.

Educating parents and kids of privacy risks should be your only concern in this matter. Parents who do not discuss the risks associated with sharing personal information on the internet with their children should not have the internet in their home.

Please reply to this email message with email addresses where I can send complaints about this law.

Thank you,
Chris Rouhier

PS: My 9 and 11 year old children just turned 13 today, with my permission of course.
