This is why I go through my kids fb accounts

 Do your kids have a fb account? Do you "monitor" it? How do you monitor it? Do you look through EVERYTHING? Do you read their messages from friends?

Well I do. Some of you may not agree with that but I just log on to her fb and she is talking to this guy and they are planning on sneaking out tonight.! I don't know what is going on with her?! She has a bad attitude with her step dad (my DH of course), she's lying to me (something she never used to do) and now she's sneaking around. I've grounded her, taken everything away from her to no avail. I don't know what else to do.

Any suggestions?

Mine are 18 and 20 and I don't.  I never did that much.  Why do they put these things on facebook?  Pretty dumb.  Ask her why she is doing these things?  Luckily my girls and dh and I never snuck out ever.  Just never even thought of doing it.  If I thought my girls would we would have hooked up our alarm system, pronto.

 She is 15 and she didn't put it on her status it was a private message. i just went back on her fb and she has deleted their convo. My DH came to bring me lunch and when he got home that same boy came over to the house.

 oh and she's messaging him on fb because she broke her phone yesterday at the mall and fb is the only thing she has to talk with her friends.

Take the phone and computer away till she can respect facebook and your rules.

 short of screwing her window shut or sleeping w/her I'm not sure what you can do to make her stay..

My dd is 14 and does not have a fb page.  She can only get on the internet here at home (she's a homebody and doesn't go to friends homes)and dh monitors the internet (he's IT so it's his "hobby") so we know she doesn't have one anyways.  We do monitor where she goes and so far it's been ok...

When was the last time you had a real conversation with her? Ask her why she is being defiant.

Oooh I wouldnt have said anything. I wouldve waited outside her window or waited on the porch (whichever way she was planning on sneaking out) and catch her in the act.



You did the right thing by grounding her. I think parents should definitely monitor their childrens social networking accounts.
