Does your daughter know...

everybody she's 'friends' with online? I see comments on some of my friends daughter's lists that make me think they don't know everyone and I wonder what these people are thinking! Especially these teenage girls who say probably more than they should online.

No, DD18 does not know everyone she "friends" on facebook. It drives DF and I nuts!! She thinks it's so cool to have a few hundred friends on FB, but how in the world would anyone keep up with that? We made her take her phone number off of her profile because of the amount of people on her friend list. Just seems WAY safer!!!

Yes, DD says she does and I believe her at this stage.

I have a rule that she must know the friend or if it someone who is a more distant relative or a friend of mine that she ask first before she accepts them as a friend.

thanks for the tip. Sometimes DD18 forgets to log off when she's used my laptop, so I get to see what's up then. I know it sounds sneaky, but I honestly don't feel bad for it.

Not sneaky at all.

That is oh so true!! (public information) We are really trying to get DD18 to remember this!!! We are making little steps forward and we are hoping that since they are little steps that they will stick!! :0)

We use the same lap tap at home so that will help. I don't think she's at the age yet where she wants to be sneaky although she doesn't like me reading over her shoulder just because she finds it embarassing!

Text talk is funny to me too.
