    There is obviously a good reason why they won't let you on it. I know you can't see it but trust them ok they love you, and want to protect you. There are a lot of dodgy sites that try to lure kids in. I don't let my son on some sites either. :)

    I know you might find it annoying, but they're only doing it because they love you. I don't let my children go on many chat rooms, or MSN or Facebook - they think I'm really mean, but I really fear for them. When they are older I will let them. Btw my daughter is older than you. :)

    To be honest I'm not really surprised, a general chat room isn't an ideal place for a ten year-old (no offence intended ;)). You need to be able to hold your own ground and be able to react to offensive language on such websites, also your parents may be concerned from a safety point of view, hence the ban.

    You also have to think about this: If you are a parent and you have heard all kinds of horror stories about children being cyber - bullied, harassed and abducted, because of what started out as a freindly chat, you would want to protect your children, and you would be a little worried about them going on a general chat site.

    That depends on how they have blocked it.
    Also, your parents have decided that they don't want you to visit this site; if one of my children managed to visit a site that I had decided to block I'd be annoyed and ban them completely from computer access for a long long time (I'd also be quite pleased that they were technically aware enough to work out how to circumvent a block)

    If I were you, I'd try and find out quite what they object to. However, with chat-rooms, I think that it will be that they are seen by many parents as a very high risk area of the internet. They have the reputation of being stalking grounds... Anyone can make an online-persona and present themselves as someone attractive and basically lie (I bet there are a few people on here who are very different in their on-line and real lives) in order to cause harm.

    There are a number of young people who regularily post here and I reckon it is public enough that too many people are "watching" for any real harm to come to them. Just be aware of private messaging (not saying don't use it, but be a bit wary) and follow the usual internet saftey rules. (don't meet anyone - at least without adult backup etc)

    In short, I think you should accept what your parents' have decided and move on... When you are grown up, you can have your own computer and internet connection and do what you want with it...

    I agree with cheating rabbit. If my son (aged 11) managed to unblock a site I had banned him from he would lose the use of internet for a very long time and possibly lose some other luxuries too depending on if I had spoken to him about why I had banned the site etc and he still unlocked it.

    My son is 11 and only allowed on childrens sites under the supervision of myself and has v limited acess as you just cant trust who is who and he is far too young to be out there in cyber space alone.

    Right on! :D

    Personally, I stay away from websites such as MSN, Facebook and Bebo, I don't want to divulge every part of my private life and blurt it out over cyberspace.

    Be guided by your parents, there only thinking of you.

    Parents always have a good reason for what they are doing even if you don't understand why.
