to be annoyed with my 15yr old son
Greenkit · 13/06/2013 21:52
So i've just got into work, DS15 and DD16 are at home, dad is home from work at 22:00 (thats for those concerned about home alone kids).
Anyway, just logged on the facebook and saw a post from my DS, which says 'Girls like for a rate', I take this to mean girls will like his post and he will rate them on looks, or whatever..
AIBU to have texted him 'DS stop treating girls like objects with your like for a rate facebook post'?

No you aren't being unreasonable to at all. I know teenagers do this all the time but it doesn't make it ok. And if I ever saw dd doing it I would talk to her about why it wasn't ok to publicly 'rate' people, on looks or anything else. The only think I would suggest is that you had a chat to him about how to treat people so you can talk properly rather than sending him a text. Also, although I think you should be friends with your ds on Facebook, he may not agree if you keep pickin him up on stuff that he does on there.

after seeing my neighbours 15 yo son bearing his father coffin down the aisle today, tbh I would forgive a 15yo anything. I know he's not your son but it has made me think blimey some 'children' really have to grow up quickly. Only yesterday he was 8 and playing footy in the garden with his dad.

I wasnt 'on' facebook, so much as it flashed on my phone that someone had posted. He added me and is happy to have me on there. And I feel I should be keeping an eye on 'online' activities.
I just wanted to know if this kind of thing should be nipped in the bud, I dont want him rating girls, it shouldnt be about that.
