Bad parenting...

Am I the only one here, with a Facebook page? I notice quit often that some women are on there posting about their kids being very sick and in the hospital but their sitting on the Internet the whole time. One of my friends does this a lot and sometimes I'd like to tell her to get off the Internet and take care of her kids. Last night she posted that he was in the hospital and they were flying him out bc his oxygen level was way to low and he isn't even a year old yet, but she just kept posting, all she was worried about was wanting to go home and cuddle with her new man.... I didn't say anything to her, but I felt like telling her to wake the **** up. Does anyone else see this kinda thing? Is it hard for you to not say anything?

I am going to be honest here and say that I did have a facebook page, and I also have 3 young kids. Since we all make mistakes, I am willing to admit that I spent too much time on there. So I deleted my account a while back, and do not regret it in the slightest. It's so easy to get caught up in all the social media that it out there these days. The main reason I don't have facebook anymore is because it truly was distracting me from my kids (I realize how bad that sounds now!) But the second reason is because I don't want my kids growing up with their own faces glued to the computer, so I had to set a good example for them :)

YES! a person who I know very well does it and it truly drives me insane! I don't say anything but I would love to tell her to put her phone down and take care of her child. I am a single mom, my babys father passed away last year, I do this on my own and I will always make sure my son knows he is loved and cherished everyday. So when I see someone else who treats their child as if their a burden or a bad kid when they DO have them (father takes the daughter 3-4 night a week) it makes me so crazy! No young child can be bad they just want love and attention!

This goes two different ways for me. I post a lot on my Facebook page but I do that because all of my family lives in Louisiana and Myself and my fiancé and daughter live in Oklahoma. It is easier for me to update everyone on whats going on if I do it on Facebook instead of texitng 15 people that are bugging me to know whats going on. I always pay attention to my daughter but in those brief moments when she is with her father or sleeping thats when I take the advantage of posting to update everyone. Now the pictures yes I agree thats not good. I have pictures of her in the bath but they are in my phone and were only sent to my mother through text message. I would never put that online. Too many sickoos.

My mother in law and sister in law are just like that, I finally just blocked them and moved on. Facebook is a bunch of drama, I only have a select few on mine bc of just that. I don't post on mine very often and hardly get on there anymore. They need a site where people are chill lol. All anyone wants to do on Facebook is fight and argue.

I dont have facebook,i use CoM when my son is still sleeping or if he goes out with my husband and i have my free time.But my mom has facebook so she told me about a friend of ours that posts constantly where she is,whats she is doing etc.Last time my mom showed me how she was sitting infront of her daughter at a table by the hospital and the daughter (18)had to drink a mixture for a lactose test...can u believe it,she posted with her phone on facebook to her daughter SITTING INFRONT OF HER "come on you can drink it" and the daughter replied "i doooont want to" and they posted a picture of her sitting there with that stuff... She is also one that puts in pictures of her 14 year old in bikini and photoshops it. I only once laughed at her because she came for a tea by me (she is 40years old) and she was telling me that she had a fight with her daughter and that this time she deleted her from facebook,and that she requested again so she will see if they made peace or not.Apparently everytime they fight the daughter deletes her mom from facebook..so i started laughing and asked if she was kidding me..and she said no.So i laughed and said jeeez i am happy i dont have these "cyber wars" and that i am happy that if i have a conflict woth someone that i discuss it with them in real.

Wow, that's sad. You'd think after hearing her daughter say that, she'd change her ways, if she did hear it, I mean. I'm sure lots of people notice my friends Facebook activity and feel the same way I do about it, haven't seen anyone say anything publicly yet though. I think I will just leave it be for now. She posted an hour ago that her son was finally home, thank god for that. I asked her privately now that she was home what was going on with the boyfriend but she never replied. Oh well, I'm just glad the baby is better and back home.

she did right in front of her mother though so all I did was hope she heard it. Somethings I truly just hate getting involved with because i have enough on my plate to deal with. And if I was the only one who noticed this stuff she does then id probably feel obligated to tell her but im not. Lots of people see it and comment on it, and im very sure the little girls dad knows all about her. Someones going to bring her actions to the table one day weather it be me or anyone else, I know it dosnt go unnoticed.

Oh wow, her daughter told you that? See that would be the end of it for me, I'd prolly go off. I don't judge either, but I guess this is kinda judgmental. I just can't stand ppl not doing right by their kids. Especially those who put men and themselves before their kids. Your right, they do get very defensive, that's the only reason I haven't said anything.

I hear u! and I don't know, im the type of person that doesn't judge anyone, but twhen I see stuff like this i cant help but thnk something aweful. I don't know what to say or how to say it to be quite honest, because everyone gets defensive and overprotective of their children and how they parent. I thought of telling the girl I know many of times that her daughter told me she thinks she doesn't love her, and to stop beng so caught up with herself and pay more attention! I just fee its not placethough :/ I that aweful?

I agree 100%! Omg I so started to tell my friend to get her head out of her butt last night. Her son is still in the hospital. But once again all she is worried about is her man at home who hasn't answered her phone calls or text, she said she even had 3 ppl knocking on the door but he didnt answer the door either. She just seems to be so worried about this man an not at all concerned about her sick baby. How do you politely tell someone how disappointing it is watching them do this? I am not the type of person to let bad parenting go unnoticed. It absolutely drives me insane to watch ppl put ANYONE/ANYHING before their kids! It is sooo hard to just sit back and watch without saying anything.

I can understand posting updates when you get a chance, but not ignoring your child completely to play on Facebook. Like my friend wasn't only posting updates every 15 mins but she was posting other things like the quotes and complaining about how bad she just wanted to go home an snuggle with her love. Her son isn't even a year old yet and they put him in the hospital bc his fever was over 104 and his oxygen level was way to low and she sat on Facebook the whole time, really made me mad and I felt like telling her how disappointed I was in her. There's another girl on there, we aren't really friends, but I went to school with her an we use to be friends, I saw her page an I clicked on it to see how she was doing since I haven't spoken to her in years and I saw she had a baby so I looked at her pics and she had like 20 pictures of her son laying in the tub naked, showing it ALLL. Someone commented on it telling her that was very inappropriate but she didnt reply to them. I just left her page and didnt even bother to ask how she was. I have a few on mine who make the updates about their kids being sick, but some of them will sit there playing on Facebook the whole time their in the hospital and I just think that's ridiculous.

I do see it and yes it is hard. Or how about the posting of daughters in 2 piece bathing suits at the pool or beach.
