You do not have to be 18 for a Facebook account. Pretty sure the age is 13 or 14. But I agree, lying about your age is wrong

Absolutely not in answer to the original question. They are not mature enough, and there is no need for them to have a FB page.

No one should have a facebook account. Get outside and actually speak to people and drop all the computer drama.

I am not saying this to all but figured I would enlighten some of you who say they monitor their children on the enternet or think that because their page is private means they are safe. I found out the hard way. The middle school girls and some high school girls all over the country not just in Winchester, dont think they are popular unless they are pregnant. And if they are not actually sexually involved they make it up. You can have your page blocked but even some of the girls you know will steal your childrens baby pictures or ultra sound pictures and create a whole new page that you don't know about and on there they are pregnant and they have proof from your pictures. Imagine my shock when I have my page completely blocked but yet I see a picture of my daughter come across my page by some boy I don't know claiming it is his child that had passed away, that he had with someone I knew. And since the person I knew had a mutual friend to me and that friend commented on the picture is how I even knew about it. Plus the fact that it had been going on for a year with every newborn picture including her ultra sound picture of my daughter. I did some research and it is going on all over the country. So just because you monitor that page doesn't mean they don't have another page you don't know about. And just because they are close friends or family on your page don't mean they won't or aren't already doing it to you. So no if your child has to be a certain age to get on a public websight and you have to lie to get them on it. You are enabling them for danger in alot of ways. And if they are not old enough to even read then they shouldnt have one at all. If they get on just to play games let them play off of yours. And I have known some 11 and 13 year old girls even lie about their age to others on there just to make them look cool. And you can't always blame the older person because how are you supposed to know when it says they are 23 and they keep telling the guy they are 23 even though they are young in the picture, and claiming it is their child or someone else? And alot of moms make their Childs picture their profile picture.

Proud mom, sounds like u know the all the answers to your question. So why post?
The way you are conversing on here with a "child" is quiet ridiculous and sad that "adults" like you are in our "present" time. Sounds like you need grow up a bit.
And yes, I do have children under the age of 14, and they have a Facebook account. Does that make me a lazy and uncaring parent? Absolutely not, I monitor there activity extremely close, and they have a LOT of children's games on Facebook for their entertainment in there given time that they are online. Wonder if you're children ever play any online games, hmmm? And all friend request or accepts have to go through ME!
"whore paint" shame on you! I understand children are growing up too fast this day and time, but is that facebooks fault or the parents fault?
Go on Google and Google your children's name, do so under search on the web and image see what information you come up with even with the account locked only to friends you may be in for a shock.

I have a niece, her mom thinks she only has one face book page / internet page, she has about five that I have found so far. Many of them have her on as an adult with pictures I'm sure her mom would not approve of. Go Google, search, images, and Youtube.I bet you will find something you don't know about.

I had a young cousin that was that way, her idea was that she was a virgin and wanted someone to help her get rid of the stigma of still being one at 14 years of age, most of her friends have not been virgins since they were 11 or 12 she said she feels that it needs to be taken care of before she turns 16. I tried to talk to her but it did not make any difference, she got pregnant before she was 16 and got married shortly after her 16th birthday. She had two daughters she dearly loves, but she divorced the father of the children, she was not happy with him before she married him. She finally found someone a few years ago that she really loves. That is what is wrong most time they can not tell the difference between sex, hormones and love they go together but are two different things. Of course many adults are that way to.
