I had his account deleted! *gasp*

My 12 yr old brother got a Facebook account a couple year ago with the stipulation that my sister and I monitor who he is friends with and how he talks, etc. I noticed a few times that his language was not so great and being mean to a girl that lives across the street from him. I let my mom know (she doesn't know much about computers, otherwise would monitor it herself) and she yells at him for a min, and that's it. I told him that I have no problem having his account deleted if he keeps it up. Well this past week his posts consisted of "what's up my n****", "what is reggin spelled backwards?", and "b****** be like, where's your wallet?". I let my mom know (feel like such a tattle tale lol), and it was her same reaction. So I made the decision myself to have his account deleted. I reported to fb that he is under 13 and using bad language... his account was removed within a couple of hours. I don't even live in the same state, and don't feel that I should be the one having to discipline him, but I guess someone has to do it *sigh*

Would you care if this was your child or sibling? Was he just being a normal kid, and I overreacted?

I think you're were right, but it's very easy to create a new email and make a new fb

No overreaction. He knew the rules and chose to break them, end of story.

You did right. I'm struggling with my cousin atm, she's 14 and her parents are both her fb friends yet are in denial about her behaving like the next 504 and posting it all. But if I do.anything again she will block me and I might not see something bad until its too late. I might not be so worried if she had an ounce of sense, but she accept requests from those random accounts from Pakistan, afric etc and has wired them money and sent them nudies

it's easy to get a new account and I'm surprised fb did anything or maybe he just blocked you and sis. They block you and it looks like it's gone. I've reported underage drinking pics, a page making fun of someone cutting themselves and fb saw nothing wrong with the pics. the underage drinking I knew those kids personally and am shocked the mom didn't even blink about them posting those pics.

I know, and I've thought about that. I didn't tell them I did it, though I'm assuming they know... but others were complaining about the status' as well. I haven't received a call though and I did it yesterday. If he does create another one I'll have that deleted too, I'm sure he'll friend our other siblings.

I would not allow anyone under the legal age for FB (13) to have an account in the first place.  I respect IP laws.

My DD is 13. She can have hers legally, but I know the password, I make sure she stays in line. She knows if she posts anything with horrid teen like grammar or pictures of her making duck faces, it will be removed. She barely goes online as it is, she's busy with sports and school.

fb sent me emails. the only reason they did anything was because he's under 13... which is against Facebook regulations to have an account that young.
