I was on Facebook tonight checking out my kids profiles (the only reason I even have a Facebook is to check on my kids!). I don’t know about you homeschool moms but I constantly want to correct my kids spelling and grammar on there! They tell me that that’s the one place it doesn’t really matter. Well, it matters to me for some reason and it really drive me crazy! Oh well, I guess it’s just one of those things I have to live with. Such as life, I suppose!
Also, I’ve had other moms surprised that I allow my kids to have Facebook accounts. Well, three of my kids are adults and out of the house. It’s a great way for us to connect. They post photos so I can see what they’re up to and I really like that a lot. As for my younger kids, they are also allowed to have accounts but, I moderate EVERYTHING! I have all their usernames and passwords and I set their accounts so only their friends can see anything. One of my kids changed his settings so “friends of friends” could see his photos. After a conversation about why that’s not the safest plan we changed it back and he’s fine with that now. It can be safe if you’re involved in the process and stay involved. My kids don’t spent too much time on Facebook but it is a fun way for them to connect with their friends and stay in the loop with activities and that sort of thing.
