On Second Life, for example, she can't interact with her son because he has to be in the teen grid and she has to be in the adult grid.
  • "So I don't learn from him about how to use technologies, and he doesn't learn from me about how to interact in a social context," she said.

    Shutting down sites or trying to shut out people won't solve the problem of sexual predators, she said. "We don't talk about shutting down the Catholic Church," she said, referring to the clergy sex-abuse scandal. "Sexual deviancy isn't unique to the online world."
