I have a child that I love very much & they are making some very bad decisions with their life. I am trying to find out if anyone can tell me how to hack into a MySpace account & delete it. My child is communicating with some very bad people that are pressuring them to do bad things. Any help would be appreciated.

You sit there with your child and a large leather belt. Ask them to log in to their account. If they not comply, tear their a$$ up with that belt. You ask them again to log in to their account, if they do not comply uplug the SOB and have the internet turned off. You are the adult, you have the job, they are not due any privacy until they move out and get their own job. That, my friend, is how you hack into a Myspace account.

You can buy downloads for your computer that log every bit of activity on your computer. There is one called Pandora that is fairly cheap (50.00 or so). It works. No one will ever know that it is there. It takes "snapshots" of the pages visited. It has a key logger to show all keystrokes. There are many more features also (e-mail, chat, etc). I don't know what the url is but just search "Pandora". Hope this helps.

What? Are you worried about hurting your child's feelings over a myspace page?

Screw that. Like Super Man said, demand they log in and delete their myspace and tell them you forbid it's use.

You're not here to be a buddy. You're a parent. You're a figure of authority; of the HIGHEST authority and they will respect your word as they do the law.

If not, then lay down the consequences. Don't be scared to parent.

There are extenuating circumstances that cannot be discussed here and our computer has been locked down, passwords changed etc, but there are friends with computers & public computers that I cannot control.

I am not scared to be a parent, I'm scared my child will end up in a grave or in a ditch somewhere. Thanks for your concern.

Why don't you consider what "An Idea" said then give your child access to the computer at home. You may be surprised to find that it isn't as bad as you think. Who knows? We want to protect our children from everything but it doesn't hurt to let them learn life lessons. At least if you try the program you can monitor the activity on your computer. If you completely delete the page you won't know what's going on anyway. I know it seems sneaky but hey...sometimes you have to do it. Furthermore, if you are afraid for your child's life why do you let them out of the house?? I agree with Spartan! YOU ARE THE PARENT!!

If that program is what "An Idea" says it is then you will be able to access your child's log in info! Then you can check the page anytime you want!

Do you or have you ever had a 17 year old? I was asking for a little help here not a berating on how I am not being a parent. Believe me I have beat myself up over this for years, so please if you can't help me keep your opinions to yourself.

Not trying to bash you. Just trying to help you to remember that WE ARE THE PARENTS! It is too easy to give into our children and let them walk over us because we hate to see them hurt.

even if you delete their page, they will create another one. If your child's behavior is scaring you then you have to spy, snoop, whatever is needed to keep them safe. What you find, confront them with. You only have a year(17) or less to legally help them stop doing whatever it is...

I can assure you that there has been no "giving in" in this situaton on my part. I could care less if I am their friend or not as a matter of fact I am actually hated by them, but at this point in time I could care less as long as they are safe.

Actually I only have a couple of months before 18. And I have spied & snooped to the best of my ability but I have a job & other kids to take care of.

AMEN to what "super man" and "spartan" said. Take control of your child and not let them take control over you. I do understand your problem and it is a hard thing. However, as they said, you are the parent and you are in charge.

Keep doing it..If it were me I would not delete their page-I would get the spy download. You might need to get your child help,(therapy?) if what your are seeing/reading is self destructive. And print out what you find.

We all need to keep in mind that every child is different and all will not mind as well as some do. Each on has to be handled in it own way. This mom cares and is trying and that is more than some even do now. That belt and do as I say will not work with every child. You can have 2 children and they will be as different as night and day. If you chase this child out of your home and something happened to them, how do you think you would deal with that(this is for all the ones that think it is all black and white with no give and take). We can only do the best we can and then hope that after they do get out and learn a little bit in this world they will come back to us safe and sound. We need to add this child and mom to our prayer list. It is hard in this world now to raise some children.
Lord please be with this mom and help guide her with the correct things to do to help her child. Please be with the child and keep them safe in your loving arms as they are learning their way in this world. Please protect them both. Thank you for all of your blessing on us today, Amen.

Thank you so much for your words of encouragement they mean more than you'll ever know. Nowadays everyone is so quick to blame the parents, I'm not saying I've been perfect by any means but I have tried to the best of my ability to raise this child in a loving home. I've taken them to church been a part of every activity they have ever done, sports or otherwise. And they have just chosen the wrong path to go down. And you are so correct in saying not everything works on every child. This one is very hard headed & no matter what I say they will do the exact opposite or bust a gut trying. Thanks again for the prayer we need it.

Please do not give up. None of us are perfect, all we can do is try our best and pray the Lord will help us some along the way. Some of the time the child that is the most hard headed will go further in life than one who is not. They may end up in (some) trouble but, stand your ground, but still stand with them too. I know that is hard to understand in some ways. You will help them work through it. Some children take longer to grow up than others too. The older people always told me that the child I had the hardest time with was always the most like me. You will want to just sit and cry sometimes, but just hang in there, it will get better. I do know what one is like that is very hard headed, but now I am very proud of what they have become as they have grown up. I would not change them at all now :-)
