While the teachers obviously are taking the tweets well, it is a good reminder that what you tweet can and will be read. Do you limit/watch your teens tweets/social media posts? If you saw something that s/he posted about a teacher, how would you react, if at all?

I pay close attention to my teenager's social media accounts. I think it is just completely stupid of a parent  not to monitor these. Kids will be kids and they think nothing of posting something they would say or talk about in person.

Our teens were the odd ones who did not have cell phones because they wanted to do other things with the money. 

Parents do need to make sure that the kids understand that everything they do and post can come back to bite them.
