Would you do this?

Do you put pictures of an outing you and your child go on with a friend they invited on facebook? I never thought about it before my girl got a facebook page a couple weeks ago. Now I wonder if I should post such things? Some of her friends have wanted to be my friends too. Maybe I should just let my daughter post any pictures if she feels comfortable?! Some of my daughter's friends have gone into my pictures (past ones) and tagged each other. I just feel kinda funny about it now that she has a page.

  • My kids are old enough yet but my MIL her son has a FB and is friends with all his friends and their parents. I think its there way of keep track but they all tag each other in each others pictures. I wouldnt worry about it. If this is what you are asking.

  • just monitor everything!!! her future college and employers may view everything one day. my kids are not old enough for these worries yet, thankfully!!! i haven't even looked into cyber bullying and stalking yet. i am not sure if those are blown out of proportion fears, or if they are genuine...they are things to think about though.

  • No I don't post pictures of my children on the open web. I have also asked people not to post my children on their pages

  • go ahead and friend them... it's good they want to be friends with an adult. It means they respect your parenting enough to be open and honest with you with their fb. (good ways to keep track of your child's activities on there too). And a tag is no big deal. They like the picture, and want to show off something they did. Not a big deal, infact take it more as a compliment :).

  • as a parent I feel we have to monitor what they do on their fb page, as well as what we put on ours! cause remember they learn what they see from us adults an their friends of course! but yeah let her post pics that she feels comfortable with, an dosent mean u can't post pics on ur site . i post pics on mine as well so my children can tag them an by the way if u don't want ur childs friends taggin them there is a place in the privacy area where u ok it before they tag the pic. thats another safety measure if u feel its needed!!
