We are not exclusively sex chat rooms but, rather, discussions can encompass just about any topic you want to talk about. Although this site does not encourage explicit content exclusively, in order to keep the demographics of the chat rooms in line, we ask that underage people stay out of the room.
When we are sneaky, we undermine our role as the primary role model-teacher in our kids' lives.
All in all, it's easy to see what Meow Chat has become so popular so quickly, but it seems like the app is not completely harmless - especially for younger users.
Meow Chat does tell people to "never send or request inappropriate images" and users can choose to make their profiles private, but these seem relatively flimsy safeguards - especially for an app that's designed to spread virally through users' Facebook friend list.
We teach our kids it is okay to be sneaky and our own behavior become a distraction to the important lessons we are trying to teach about safety, responsibility and maturity.
When we "catch" our kids doing things right - be sure to tell them and provide positive reinforcement.
