He's 15. I have asked more than once if he had a FB. We do not allow them in our family. He said NO. I even searched by his name and ph# and found nothing. Well tonight I guess I walked quietly up the stairs and he didn't hear me so I busted him with a FB page up! He shut it down immediately but I realized how he's been hiding it since I DO check the browser history. He has 2 browsers open at once so when he hears me coming he completely closes out the FB browser and leaves the "clean" one up.
So, I demanded the log in info, made him shut down the PC, and I took his phone. I am disgusted and sad. I trusted this boy. He is my best friend. And now I see he is just a typical lying teen. The FB doesn't contain anything particularly bad. There is one mildly sexual reference but the rest is just normal teen stuff.
I am heartbroken. What do I do?
It was an honest question. You say you trust him but with you checking on him over every single little thing, it shows him that you don't trust him. Other than this has he given you a reason not to trust him?

I work in a High School... FB and Twitter is how they communicate... by not allowing it you are cutting off or cutting him out of most communication. If having a FB page is the worst he's doing you have it pretty good. ALL kids lie about something, that's a FACT!! In the general scheme of things this really isn't so bad!!!!

Marlye, you got the overbearing, control freak right. I thought I remembered seeing her screen name in Confessions. She posted earlier about sitting in between her son and his girlfriend during a movie.
