Navarrete was asked by Olympic gold-medal figure skater Evan Lysacek about her opinion on monitoring children’s use of the Internet.
“I do believe that Internet is an indispensable, necessary tool for the present time,” she said through an interpreter. “We must be sure to teach them the values that we learned as a family.”
