    I've printed out some fact sheets on aids and Will get her to read it and discuss it with her and how it would feel to have it

    Default What do you think about this from a teen?

    Its very good that you are keeping an eye on her Facebook/Internet access, and intervene when necessary. Honestly 14 is young and she's learning what is acceptable behavior, obviously she needs some steering in the right direction but you're doing the right thing.

    I agree, my cousin just turned 13, his fb is full of crap from kids his age and just a bit older that frankly makes what your sd has done seem lovely! Some of these kids are great smart kids from lovely families, and frankly prob don't even understand half of the stuff they talk post about.

    Its very sad but for alot of kids talking crap is the way they see to fit in.

    I'm terrified about having teenagers if this is normal...
    I agree and I will pull my child up everytime if they were to behave like this. Wanting to fit in or not....

    It may very well be "normal" but it is not acceptable and these children should be taught that it is not right. This is how bullying gets ignored, because people excuse it as normal. At what point does it stop being normal?

    Exactly right. I will never overlook something like that. Never.

    With my teen, we have a rule, he is only allowed to have an account if I'm a friend, he went through the icky facebook stage at 13 but now at 15 he has grown out of it. It's unbelievable what kids write on them

    She sounds immature - just like lots of 14 year olds and doesn't realise the repercussions of her actions. She needs to be guided with this before it gets her into trouble.

    i'd like to say mine won't but they (teens) are so sneaky they can make up any profile and a fake name and you would never know they had an account especially if they use it at school on friends phones etc. I would much prefer to teach her the rights and wrongs , monitor it etc.
    she's not had a "normal" up bringing , as in her mum teaching her morals etc. we put our 2 cents in when she'd come for visits but that was only EOW. so she is actually doign really well considering what she's come from
