Saw my DS' underage friend on Facebook, what should I do?

report em?
let it go?
I know they aren't the age they are registered as.

Does reporting do any good or will they just create a new profile or alter it to look like its someone older's and resume where they left off? Other than the picture on the profile I couldn't prove its theirs or their mom and dad's.

I don't wanna waste my time.

  • I'd let it go. Not your kids, not your business.

  • LOL...really? Who cares. It isn't your kid. Maybe the parents know. I know I let my son have one at 10. I monitored it very well. He has one now at 14 and he has no pictures and not even his real name. He barely has friends. I still monitor it.

    Let it go...

  • There are a ton of kids on FB. If their parents are on there and know, it won't do anygood anyway. They will just make a new profile. I didn't know there was an age. I thought that was myspace.

  • If you know the parents then maybe mention it... I think the "I don't care" attitude is why kids get in trouble, too many people over look things, and then something happens, and the kid has already gotten in trouble.

    I saw my niece when she posted something on someones wall I had on my page, and I called her Mom (my sister) and told her she'd better take a look, she didn't even know she had a FB page, because she didn't have one herself... My niece is 11 and had no business on FB. She no longer has a page, and lost her DSI because of lying to her Mom....

  • maybe, unless the girl is clever and has made a new profile and uses another computer her mom doesn't know about. Kids these days are pretty cheeky nowadays

  • I'd make sure his parents know he has an account. My niece and nephew have facebook accounts, and the oldest is only 11. My sister knows about them, however, and she has to approve anyone they add to their friends' list. It's mostly family and their little friends from school.

  • No, I wouldn't report it.. What's the point? Many many kids are on FB and Myspace.. As long as their profile is age appropriate(meaning no half naked pics etc) I see nothing wrong with it.

  • There are so many parents that let their kids have a profile.

    Answer by SuperrMommyy at 9:58 AM on Oct. 7, 2010

  • Yeah on Myspace you gotta be 14 or 15
    and on FB you gotta be 13.

    granted there's no way for the sites to verify anything anyone says when they register, they could be anyone, but still.
