Do parents check to see if their kids are on facebook? Really? Even if the kid is in grade school, just check. Do you want your child's pic to be on facebook for EVERYONE to see? I don't think parents check. If they did, they would DIE! of embarrassment.

I doubt many parents pay any attention to what their kids do these days... I mean there are at least two 12 year old's pregnant here in Rushville as we speak...

I have my children's facebook set up so everytime they like share or post it is sent to my email. Its very sad how some parents don't care what their kids r doing as long as they r not being bothered

That is why you don't make your kids facebook. BECAUSE THEY ARE KIDS! There is way to much crap on there that they don't need to see. Protecting your kids from creeps is another fine reason. Come on ppl, facebook is a social network for ADULTS...

I agree with you all, but if you gonna let your kid have Facebook then like what is mentioned it should be by your email address so you can keep an eye on it, that and you should always have the password to read what goes on. Otherwise, no Facebook. Just my opinion.

How many sex offenders, child molesters, or chilld predators are on facebook posing as someone ur childs age? How many can ur child friend and chat with not knowing the child they think they are talking to is actually an adult viewing their pictures,their likes, and are a apart of their lives on facebook. Ever wondered about that? I don't even think an email address under a parents name can prevent that.

No but that email will allow u to see who they try to friend and if u don't know them then u don't allow that person to stay on friends list simple as that.

parents don't care they let their kids do what they want. I've got a neighbor that her daughter was pregnant at the age of 15. She bragged on her daughter was going to be a good mom. Ok a 15 year old be a good mom ! Get real she is a child herself. All the mom was concerned about is going out with the girl and looking fine herself . This is a mom that claims its all about her girls. It's sad but fact is no one cares anymore and anything goes.

Its totally reeediculous to give your child a facebook at the age of 6, 7, 8, 9...what about all the the stupid forwards ppl post about sex, drugs, 1/2 naked ppl. You can control who your child is friends with, but you have no control over what they post. Kids are getting on facebook and all they see is pic after pic of mom and dad sh!tfaced at the bar. What's that teaching them?
yeah

I agree 100% although the kids already see mom and dad do a lot of things a child shouldn't see. Kids will normally do what their parents do or what their friends do. I know people who let their kids tan at 12 years old. Run the streets at 9 10 and on up. Then they wonder why their kids are in trouble or failing school. Its all in what ur use to I guess.

I actually heard a grown man say that his 10 and 11 year olds were mature enough to watch rated R movies that were rated because of violence and adult content. Needless to say this guy is a moron.

If it were up to me the preteen who's facebook I watch wouldn't have one. However, the mother wants to let her have one to keep in contact with family states away so I was tasked with watching the facebook, that includes the sign in and information and me going through messages and wall posts and all of that at random times. I have to know the person added on friends list, the Facebook is set on very private where she can't even be searched for, and anytime there is something questionable that person gets deleted, even if its family. If it was my child they wouldn't have one, but if someone insists their child has Facebook, there ARE ways to keep it "Safer". yes, its not totally safe as no online site or location is, but at least its better then the tons of children and preteens learning about sex on facebook and how its the "happening thing" to do right now (Which apparently is going around town right now, judging by recent events.)

What's happening is these kids r learning it from home. I bet most of these parents were from teenage moms themselves and so the cycle continues.

I do believe that a person to have a facebook has to enter a birth date correct. If the birth date states u are under 18 it won't allow an account will it? If that is the case then the birth date listed is a lie. If it doesn't say a person needs to be 18 then it should. Like a poster said earlier there are things said,pictures,and likes a child shouldn't see.

I think Facebook allows 13 or 14 year olds but I'm not 100 percent sure, and yes kids just fake their birthdays.

I would guess that would mean that it would be a lack of parenting.
