    Well, I'm not sure what to think about this type of parenting, but check this:

    I think a 12-year-old shouldn't be on Facebook to start with.

    I agree, I think 14 is a way better age to allow them to use social media. And plus, I don't know why her parents allowed her on Facebook at that age. I mean, come on..

    I'm not sure I agree with the 14 being a way better age. I think if you have a mature kid over the age of 12 that they should be allowed on social networks, as long as they are monitored by one of their guardians. (The guardian has an account too and constantly checks what their son/daughter says)

    Kids will be kids so of course they won't stop getting social media pages, but the parents need to monitor them more

    lulz It's a nice move from the parents.
    If I had a kid on a social media site, I'd watch their 'socializing' like a hawk.
    So they don't post stupid things. >_>

    Once they're 18 though. lulz Have fun kids.

    I think bravo. What her little letter says is very true and I don't think it is terribly embarrassing or hurtful to her self esteem.

    Thank God for parents like this because now I don't have to run across her young disrespectful butt. Props to the parents for keeping her from being a nuisance.

    Or be a mean parent and block their social media accounts from being used. Unless they know how to get around it with proxies, then that's all they got. And plus, it's all good - she deserves what her parents did because she shouldn't have been posting pictures like that. If CPS caught wave of that, the parents would have heard a ear-full.:eek:

    I honestly just think social media takes a way a lot of time kids can spend with their family or be involved in sports or pursuing their hobbies.
    Sure, you can stay connected with other people - your friends - but sometimes you really have to stop that connection and have a bit of family / face-to-face time.

    I wouldn't mind having kids who use social media sites for organizing clubs, fundraisers, or things like that - - but if socializing and just posting status updates/pictures are taking up most of their time, I wouldn't let them on.
    There's so much that's out there in the world that people miss just because they FB / etc so much. :)

    A good balance is needed, that's all.
    And I seriously seriously love that parenting style. ;D

    Nothing like humiliation that makes people not want to repeat their mistakes again.

    Well, the parent kind of asked for it really. I think the minimum requirement age is 13 to be able to even sign up to Facebook. Where was the parent when the child was signing up for the site?

    "In order to be eligible to sign up for Facebook, people must be 13 years of age or older. " - From the Facebook Help pages.

    I think 13 is a good age to be introduced to online social media. However, I think it should be done with moderation and education on how it works.
