Keeping our children safe on Facebook

Hello to all Moms,

Yesterday I had to send a message to a fb "friend" of my child telling him to remove my daughter's pic from his extremely offensive fb photo album. After his refusal and blatant disrespect, my husband and I are following up.

In order to be permitted to have a fb account, parents need to make it conditional that their children fb "friend" them. If my husband and I weren't fb friends with our child, we would not have known the vulgar disrespect shown to my daughter and to myself on this boy's page. And of course, the damage is done because his offensive act now lives on in cyber-space.

How sad that a cool social site is also abused by many. Let's keep Facebook a safe place for everyone to enjoy.

Thank you for your reply Shannon. What is scary is this particular case went beyond being cruel; it was seriously inappropriate - to the extent that I don't feel comfortable posting the content for public view.

We had to write a letter (snail mail) in efforts to have the posting removed. ..

I agree. Kids can be so cruel to one another that we have to be responsible parents so that we can teach them what to watch out for.
Making sure your child is one of your friends on facebook is a great idea. I will be doing that when my son is older.
