My DD, just turned 16, has a pattern of getting upset, usually because of something we wont let her do, or something we make her stick with, and then proceeds to vent on facebook in her status ("so sick of it all", "gotta get out of here"etc.), makes emo pictures of herself with quotes from songs, etc. I know teens must vent, and we all did as teens, but publicly?? I just said I wish kids wouldn't use fb to vent, and be careful what you project on the computer, but of course they feel like it's their right to do so. Thoughts?Answer Question

I don't have any teens yet but I have a lot of teen relatives and they all seem to do the same on facebook. I especially hate these emo pictures. What's with the drama?? I think you can't do anything to stop it though. Since she is allowed to have an account on facebook, you can't really tell her not to post stuff like that. Especially now with the new filter thing. She can choose to post anything and hide anything from specific people.
She'll get over it out. Teens tend to exaggerate!
