A Note to My Kids on Social Media: I Was Here First

Great! Absolutely great article from a mom to kids that use social media. And if the the title doesn’t have you interested, here are some of my favorite points she makes:

*I was here first. You’re here because I brought you here. Yes, I realize you would have gotten here eventually but in the words of Ricky Bobby… if you ain’t first, you’re last.DSC_0216.JPG

*Just because we’re friends doesn’t mean that I’m watching everything that you do. As a matter of fact, quite often I forget that you’re here until you post something crazy or inappropriate.

*Speaking of… you need to watch what you’re posting. I know you think only your friends are seeing the crazy things you post but as luck would have it, I’m seeing it, your dad’s seeing, grandmother, etc. Grandparents think you’re still 3-years-old — they don’t take you dropping the f-bomb too well — especially in public.
