Then you say "put the phone away until I have finished talking to you"

Wow no I don't, how totally disrespectful, why would you put up with that?

I don't know, it just happens. Well, I assume it happens. Maybe I am paranoid...

Who pays for this phone? And the Internet connection that goes with it?

Sorry, I know I'm being a bit shock and you were trying to be lighthearted, but I do have a 14 yo and if she EVER posted me online without permission or in a mocking way, it would be the last time she used any Internet connection I was paying for.

Shockingly bad manners.

RhondaJean, I admire your style :-)
I think I lack confidence in myself hmm

Sorry toad, I'd be inclined to agree with Rhonda. Mine youngest are 17 now and if anything concerning family is going on facebook, they always ask first.

Time to take back control OP. Set some ground rules and consequences, and stick to them. Come on - you're not their mate, you're their parent!
