Pippy’s dad here.
When Pippy was 4, she noticed that both Mary (mummy) and I had blogs. By this time, she was quite used to the Internet, and therefore decided she wanted a blog of her own.
The deal we came up with was:
- No pictures or videos of her or her brother
- She would dictate, I would type (we would discuss what to write)
- I would read comments BEFORE she would see them (sadly, even with Akismet anti-spam running, this has been necessary)
I ought to stress that we discussed this approach with both my brother (a police officer) and my sister (a teacher), and all of us felt it was the right compromise between development and protection.
