your a parent of young children and teens, there are questions that
seem to just pop into your mind... Questions like, I know their
father and he's got a brain that sometimes works. I have a brain that
works. How can my child have no brain at all?
child seems smart. They get decent grades in school and seem to be
capable of learning. Why oh why can't they learn something here at
it me? Am I just incompetent as a parent and can in no way teach them
and guide them?
will they do next to bring more worry and heartbreak into my life and
theirs? What kind of acts of rebellion will they come up with next?
Should I snoop my childs Facebook account?
might know someone who does. Alright a few someones!
just too many years back, kids could do some really dumb things that
would make the neighborhood or even the town cringe with fear and
have everyone wagging their tongues with talk about that family down
as children grew and learned those problems would slowly fade into
the sunset. Many people wouldn't even remember the acts that brought
the fame to a childs name. Their bad acts and deeds would not be
located in history books and encyclopedias.
goofy and sometimes dangerous acts, the frivolous and even lewd acts
like streaking the local high school football stadium or a local
parade, would just be left behind and slowly blow away like dust in
the wind. There may have been a few who remembered when, but they
watched while the kids grew into long term thinking beings and
may have even been some home movies that caught some of the acts of
kids as they stretched their worlds bounds while experimenting and
learning who and what they were. But those seldom left home. Some
were caught by local news papers or TV stations, yet they too became
no more than tapes collecting dust on shelves.
do get seeked out and put on display later if a child grows up and
decides to become a politician, or grows up and becomes a boss with
came along a TV show, Funniest Video's. Now the world could see the
acts and deeds of an immature mind, incapable of thinking beyond the
moment. They also were forgotten by most and were placed on shelves
we have this internet. One can take a picture when they dress up all
sexy, or undress, and easily add it to their account. One could
record their stupidity and put it on the internet for everyone in the
entire world to see.
anyone can witness the the inane acts and even download them for
their personal enjoyment or to attempt to humiliate you at a later
date. With the click of a few buttons, any and all that has been
placed on the internet can be searched out and found. Usually at the
most inopportune time in the life of a human who has become an adult.
Wag Tongue Wanda can find it and humiliate you at each and every
family get together. Uncle Laughing Larry could be showing this even
when your old and gray and have children of your own. Now wouldn't
that destroy any integrity you have with your own kids...
my own opinion, yes! You should inspect your childrens account. Not
looking for all the itty bitty dirt that you could use against them
when your angry that they won't clean their rooms. Not seeking new
and exciting ways to ruin their lives and infringe on their
to help them protect their futures and their possible future dignity.
you find something you don't approve of you need to delete it or make
them delete it. Then talk with your child and discuss the possible
future outcomes or results of what they say or do.
them know that as long as your the one paying the bills and your
really the owner of said computer, phone, I Pad or whatever, you will
control it and it's use by anyone who is “allowed or isn't” to
use your instrument. Make them aware that even if it was a gift from
someone else, they only use it with your permission.
In my house I am God and I will lord my mightiness over you right up
until the day you leave. I will then take every possible opportunity
to stick my nose into your personal life and do whatever or say
whatever I think you need to keep you straight, right up to the time
I see you acting responsibly!
you have a right to privacy and you'll get it when you grow up and
have a home of your own and a life of your own. Mess up then and
you'll find out there isn't much privacy in a jail cell, or living on
the streets because your actions as a child make it impossible to
find a job.
the parent. Your child is your responsibility. Your childs moral
teaching is your duty. Your childs possible future is at stake. Take
charge and be a real parent!
out that anything put on the internet will be out there forever.
Anything can be copied and pasted. Not just to someones computer, but
to anywhere else on the internet. There is no privacy on the
internet. Nothing is totally safe. Even secure sites and areas have
been hacked, much to the embarrassment of many people. Even peoples
bank accounts and credit accounts get hacked.
how could anyone expect any personal information to be safe? How can
a Facebook account with anything you post including pictures be safe?
Heck, might as well take the blinds off the windows and build glass
walls on your house...
just do it. Smile while your imposing on your childs life and ruining
it. Smile while knowing that for all the tears and eye rolls of today
they may have a chance at a decent life with decent employment. Then
smile even more as you recall the dumb stuff you did and realize your
oh so happy the universe has no proof you did...
