Reese Witherspoon Worried About The Internet!

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

REESE Witherspoon worries about how to protect her children from the seedy side of the internet.

The Oscar-winning actress — who raises Ava, 12, and Deacon, 7, with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe – told Marie Claire magazine that she’s concerned about her kids accessing filth.

“The internet is just so challenging as a parent. Your children are a click away from pornography and pedophilia, and it’s just really upsetting,” she said.

“It feels like a siege. It really makes me upset. You really don’t know who they are Skyping with or who they are on Facebook with, and I’m trying to stave all that off as long as I possibly can, but I know it’s a reality. It’s just inevitable.

“I wish I had some sort of forum for women dealing with this, because I have so many friends who don’t know what to do. I just don’t know how to parent in the digital age. I’m terrified of it.”

Reese recently admitted she found being a single mother “really, really stressful” until she met new husband Jim Toth.

“I was hard on myself when I got divorced. And until I got remarried, I don’t think I knew how stressed I was. I feel so much relief,” she said.

“I don’t think I knew how stressed I was being a single parent. It was really, really stressful. It’s not easy on anybody.”
