    kids these days know how to get around that stuff. you can block it all, but she will just use her friends, school, or library computer.

    imho, it is better to educate and inform them of the evils within the sites. don't block her from the bad. educate her and let her know why it is bad. show her articles from myspace/facebook criminals and rapists. show her 'to catch a predator'.

    blocking it will only build interest and intrigue. everybody wants to taste the forbidded fruit so to speak. if you downplay it, she will be less interested.
