YOU'VE GOT TO HIDE YOUR PORN AWAY

Whether it's viewing porn, watching violent movies or posting revealing photos of themselves, teenagers really don't want their parents to know what they do online. 76% of teens hide their online behavior from their parents, up from 45% just three years prior, according to a nationwide survey of youth and parents that was conducted by McAfee. And the kids are getting away with it. Many parents feel overwhelmed by technology and just hope for the best. So much for that approach. Their teenagers are not only engaging in risky behavior online, but also have become expert in fooling their parents. What are teens doing online that they want to hide from their parents?
