WTF? This is the kind of stuff that pisses me off!

Posted by   + Show Post

Exactly why my 13yo is not allowed to have a facebook. This is suppossed to be a TEENAGE page. Does this outrage anyone else?

**Warning: Facebook page contains inappropriate pics**

My kids are older, when they get older you learn to deal with them at that age. I completely understand how you couldn't see that far into the future. When my kids were babies I had some pretty strong opinions about things I really had no idea how they would play out.

How can you police everything? Do you get on and look at every friend's page and every friends' likes pages? You can't possibly govern all they see online. Do you stand over them as they are on Facebook? Do you make them get your approval before posting pictures or statuses? Even deleting stuff on Facebook doesn't take it away, so once they post something it's there forever. A 9 year just can't understand that completely.

My kids have had no problem with facebook. It it's somehting your children can't handle then don't let them use it. Seems pretty simple. 

Quoting newmom3012:

Internet safety is a huge issue for ADULTS. Now take a 9 year old who lacks maturity and understanding - do you really think they're equipped to deal with thematic and safety issues of being "online" at that age? I don't.



No one NEEDS Facebook, but pre-pubescent kids need to be protected FROM Facebook. How do you not understand that distinction? It's not like she was saying your kid can't eat dinner and then have dessert as a treat....she's saying your 9 year old shouldn't have a Facebook account because it's dangerous.

I babysit kids who are 13 with Facebook. They talk about threesomes their friends are having and post pictures of themselves in towels. Their parents monitor their Facebook too - or at least they think they do.

I've never claimed that all children with Facebook's are angels. I can only account for my own.
