Facebook Rules For Mothers of Teens

I have a lot of my 17 year old sister's friends on my Facebook. I also have some of her friends' mothers, as well as other mothers of teens. Lately, I have come across several cringe-worthy status updates, pictures, or comments from some of these mothers. So! I present to you...

Facebook Rules For Mothers of Teens

1.) Your daughter and her "bestie" are arguing again? Stay out of it. They will likely be friends again tomorrow IF you refrain from telling Facebook how the BFF is just jealous of how gorgeous/awesome/smart your daughter is. When things go beyond typical teenage girl tiffs, by all means, step in...talk your daughter and the other teen's parents. Bashing the ex-BFF on Facebook makes you look like an immature bully.

2.) For the love of all things alcoholic, DO NOT duckface. Definitely do not duckface WITH your teen. I don't think this needs further explanation. When you are 40, it isn't cute.

3.) Do not post pictures of your daughter dressed for the club or in her bathing suit while bending over or pushing her boobs together..on your own Facebook. It's weird. When said picture's caption also reads, "Isn't my daughter a HOTTIE???", you start looking like Fancy's mom. For realz. Better yet, if it's meant to be a "sexy" picture, just don't post it.

4.) Save the drama for your mama, not your daughter's mama. If your status CONSISTENTLY reads, "zOMG! Soooo much drama! I will not be a part of this immature crap. Some people REALLY need to grow up!!!!!", we'll all know who REALLY needs to grow up.

5.) Do not add your teen's male friends to your Facebook, then proceed to post "sexy", half-dressed photos of yourself.

6.) Do not share your family drama. It can cause serious embarrassment for your child ("Omg, did you see where Johnny's mom said that his dad is an alcoholic and no good piece of shit?!") and no one wants to read that shit. It embarrasses the rest of us FOR your child.

7.) ~*~{TyPiNg LyKe DiS iS UnAcCePtAbLe.}~*~ Your child's friends might think you are cool. The rest of us will consider shanking you. Also, leave the txt spk 2 ur teen.

8.) Not everyone needs to know that you caught your sweet Sarah blowing her boyfriend instead of doing homework. Seriously, no.

9.) Pictures of you partying with your teen? Yeaaaa...NO. Not cute.

Possibly a more personal one:
10.) Don't taunt your teen's boyfriend or girlfriend with snide remarks. The older sister of your teen's significant other might go all Bon Qui Qui on you.. just sayin'.

Your welcome.

This was high-sterical! Sad but hi-sterical. I just want to see how many different ways I can spell hysterical. It's so teenager, isn't it? Great post!
