As an advocate and student studying health + human services this scenario is sad and I'm glad child welfare is involved.  WDYT?  Is there a break down of the system, according to her, here or is this just somebody placing the blame on others?

A decade ago would have meant before your kid was born.. No? You've shared not so nice things about your inlaws recently, It' not just washed up news from a decade ago, The irony is delicious and very funny, Lol! It's ok to rip your family apart but not me about my husband's family.  What mental illness does your MIL have? She shares that freely with you or are those records you gain access to too.....  Curious wannabe, thanks.

"I would think, actually, that having friends that are considerably older would only ADD to one's experiences ... not detract from them." ------ One of my very good friends is 82. I also have good friends who are in their 20s and 30s.

Ditto. I've learned so much from my (older and wiser) Banshee friends...I truly value the knowledge and wisdom imparted, which I never would have acquired if I'd limited myself to friends who are "my age."

AMEN! Who wants to put anything out there when decade old comments will taken out of context and trotted out solely to prove a point? No thank you. And thank you, Mark Zuckerberg, for FB...

Which makes your claim earlier on Mortys ciricle of friends seem, well...less than genuine.  What do your kids have to do with your facebook account?  I know of only one person that has targeted posters children and their friends, I have her blocked, my guess is that you don't.  :)

I would suggest reporting them and if they don't remove them, perhaps they don't believe they are against tos?

Instead of words, you should have used pictures, they post a lot of them!

I remember old debates like this. Gasp, I once had company when it came to feelings about inlaws.

Some people grow, change and work on relationships and others hold on to grudges and chose to be passive agressive instead.
