My lovely wife sent me a SMS last night while i was out with a friend, saying that my eldest son Jovial lied that he did not reload his prepaid but in actual fact he did and she lamented that Jovial was so attached to the phone even having it beside hime when going to bed.
I too have my reservation about my son using handphone, seriously i dont see the need of it yet,anyway he got what he wished for. I know he hardly makes calls but he keeps receiving SMSes from his online friend that makes us kind of worry.
Last week, when his prepaid expired,he begged me to reload for him,i told him he had to wait but now he reloaded it without our knowledge. I really dont mind him playing the on line games but the worry is about this guy who calls himself "tommy" who keeps sending him SMSes, even when my Jovial is offline, i tried to snoop reading the messages but they got deleted before i could do it.
I told Jovial about the danger of on line friends, the predator in disguise, worse still the phadophiles who hunt on the innocence of the teenage boys and girls, he told me he understood but somehow i am not really convinced.
I intend to talk to him late this evening about he doing things behind our backs, about he deleting all the messages,about this and about that.
Please tell me what you would do if you were to be in my shoes? Should i take away the handphone if he does not want us to read the messages, stop him from playing the on lines game, telling him that we will call this "Tommy" up and introduce ourselves as his parents or so i leave it status quo as if it is part of Jovial's growing up.
Humbly i learn, generously you must share, ok?
