Have You “Friended” Your Kid?

517966692_d5e100b039Your kid may hang a “Do Not Enter” sign on his door and heaven forbid if he’s seen talking to his mom in public, but when it comes to his social media usage, how strict are you about staying in the loop? According to a recent survey conducted by Liberty Mutual’s Responsibility Project, 72 percent of parents who allow their children to use social media say they monitor their activity on these sites until 18 years of age, and 69 percent of parents are “friends” with their kid online.

If your kid’s old enough to be on Facebook, are you friends?

    I would NOT recommend be-friending your kids on the FB if you have a life of your own. The problem is WHAT your kids might read about you! You don’t monitor your own conversations or the comments that your friends might make. Can you see that this is a recipe for inevitable disaster?
    This is the main problem we have with FB – inability to separate your “friends” into groups, so you inevitably end up with a mix like college friends, parents from your child’s school, teachers, your siblings AND (as you are suggesting) your kids. Just think for a second, would you bring ALL those people together at the same time? If the answer is “NO”, do not add your kids.
