Are you friends with your kids on Facebook?
Is this the only way you can communicate with your kids? You don't see the family sitting around the dinner table asking "how was your day today?" anymore. Seems if a parent wants to talk to their kids today they have to text them or post it on Facebook or My Space. Your thoughts??
I am friends with both my daughters and some of their friends and they are friends with some of mine. My one daughter is in the games with me and my other uses it to post all the baby pictures of my grandson. I am going to be a grandmother again and she has posted her UltraSound of that on FB too. It is the only place that she could think of to get to all the families and her friends to post her picts.
My kids are grown, but we still catch up at least once a week around the dinner table and find the time to check in and see how everyone is doing.
But to answer your question,
Yes, I am friends with my kids on FB, and with some of their friends too. I don't think this is the only way to stay in touch, but it certainly allows you an opportunity. No sense in wasting a perfectly good opportunity.
It also allows them to know what you are up to in the social world that is the internet, and that tends to keep you "honest".
it is just the way to communicate for that parents who r not near to their parents.
Yes. It's a good way to keep in touch, as my son stays at school during the week, I can check to see what effect my actions are having on the recipients, and I can see what he is up to and who with!!
I am friends with my daughter because I get a sense of knowing who she's communicating with, really just for selfish safety reasons.
Yep. But I do pick up the phone and see my kids regularly as well.
I am not friends with my daughter on FB, but I am friends with some of the kids I have as a high school teacher. I really don't share much info on FB, but it is a good way to answer school related questions if they arise.
I am friends with my kids, my son asked me to friend his gf which I thought was pretty neat (hes 12)
Its a great way to see whats going on. Some times they will post more than you think or there willing to tell you. You might want to make up some one for them to "friend". With the new face book ability to filter who sees what, you might get a better gauge of whats going on. If your concerned about things or need more info. I can help you.
Yes, my daughter Sarah and I reunited via Facebook as a matter of fact.
I am but have learned that it is a privilege that must not be abused. Don't interfere, don't make embarrassing posts. Dont use Fbook gained info against them. The reward is a precious insight into your offsprings blossoming social world. It can be incredibly useful too if you need to get in touch in a hurry and the mobile is dead. But as I said dont take advantage just think yourself lucky, My folks would have given their right arms for it.
