Three young girls use the internet.

There's been a debate going on this week about when and whether parents should monitor their children's online behavior.

Janell Burley-Hoffman helps us at Marketplace Tech understand how to behave with technology, and she weighs in on the subject.

The set of articles that sparked this week's debate were written by Matthew Ingram of GigaOM, who has appeared on this program before. Click here to read the first in his series.

Parents, tell us how you monitor your children online in the comment section below.
