My daughter is not quite a teenager yet but she's beginning to show occasional distressing signs of teenitude. Her computer is right next to mine, so in theory I can read everything she's doing but in practice I often get called away. She's in my guild, and I try to roll a character on any realm she plays in and alert the guildmaster of any guild she joins about how to get in touch with me if she causes trouble. Problem is, my girl is an altaholic, so it's tough to keep up with her.Then again (mother rationalizing), if she's not obsessing on one character she won't be obsessing on one guy, so I'm slightly safer.

And here is the double edged sword of the realID system. You dont want your teen's name out there of course.. but on the other hand it would be much easier to keep track of her alts.

@califBut with it's current feature to see 'friends of friends', Mom can keep a close eye on if anyone else has her realID, and who those people are, too. Unless that feature got turned off somewhere around the line.

You can make the realID name be fake. Matching an alt or favorite toon names.
