  • I don't think so my sister is 15 and blocks my mom from the albums she doesn't want her to see.

  • Probably not...don't you have to be 18 for a FB account? I know kids are on it but it is age restricted for a reason. My 18 y/o was just allowed to join and she wasn't that impressed w/ the social networking so she deactivated her account. My 29 y/o son is an attorney, he says the liability is not worth having FB. Our family communicates old school...in person LOL!

  • Some are completely clueless. My oldest son is now 19 (almost 20) and out of the house. When he was living with us though girls would call the house at 2-3am. I would have to tell them to stop calling after 10. They did not listen and would get rude and ugly. My son one time called one back (which I did not know). Their mom called me in the middle of the night yelling about how my son was calling and how her dd was not allowed to talk to boys. I informed her of her lovely daughters actions calling my house, cussing at me, etc. I then said you know before you blame my son who I know was calling her back, check her facebook pics.

  • i mean we know that the new generation is more open. parents seem to be more lenient with them, they are allowed to do and have things that i never even had. the way they speak to there parents is another thing.. i can't believe some of the things that come out of childrens mouths at times..

  • 15 is just not "15" anymore....it's more like "20". Sad, really.

  • I forgot what it is called but there is a program that monitors and even blocks selected email adresses, senders etc. Some internet providers provide such services.

  • My niece (17) got her page taken down for posting what they considered underage porn. What is worse it is was a picture of her. It was pretty bad.

  • TOS for Facebook is 13. But in my house, you cannot access a computer without my knowing passwords etc. for all social media.
    My children aren't allowed to block me from accessing their FB pages via my own or I will password protect all the computers in the house.
