Children on your Facebook friend list

A lot of my friends on Facebook are old enough to have teenage children on Facebook now. I have a hard and fast rule to never send these kids friend requests, or accept them anymore, even if I know them and their parents well. I post inflammatory content sometimes and rarely censor myself. If a teenager is one of my friends, it’s because I think they are well rounded and can handle anything I might post.  

There are only 2 on my friend list and they are both awesome kids!

This being said, I have a really nice friend that told me her child was on Facebook and might like to be my friend. I knew she was just being nice, because I don’t think she even enjoys much of what I post 🙂 I was sure that to tell me “If she tries to friend you, please ignore it because I’m pretty sure you’re the anti-Christ of Facebook.” was not something she felt comfortable saying to me.

So here’s the thing…if kids are on your friend list, make sure they get what you’re talking about. Facebook was created for kids, after all, and not for us, so respect their space, protect them from harm and never, ever cross that boundary of respect for the parent.
