I bet you use that same mouth to kiss your kid too….

Hey Friend,

I know it’s hard to find good social media material on a consistent basis. I’ve struggled myself to come up with a witty Facebook status a time or two (thank goodness that Rosie’s so funny herself so I have help). But, I think today you’ve finally crossed the line. The word f$%#ing should never be used in a caption under a child’s picture. Ever.

I’m not a prude. I like to let a good F-bomb loose every once in a while. But, certainly not in front of my child. And, definitely not below a picture of my child. In fact, when I see pictures of my kid, a single negative thought doesn’t cross my mind. Even when she’s been bad.

Apparently, you don’t seem to care that Facebook is public. Every word that you utter is out there for public consumption. A few of us that saw your posts today had a lively discussion surrounding your shocking behavior just prior to hitting the hide button.

The coolest thing about dissing your kids on Facebook is that handy timeline feature (and God knows what else they’ll dream up by the time your child logs on.) One day in the future, your kid may have the picture (and everything else that lead up to it) pop up on his wall. Won’t that be fun? I’m sure he’ll be proud that you spoke of him with such fondness. Children are such needy little creatures aren’t they?

I think it’s time that you back away from the computer and put your mouth to better use. Praise your children. Give them kisses. It would be a much better use of your time.

    I was disturbed and quite honestly infuriated by that post and a few others from the past few days… It just isn’t ok. And those children clearly know how their parents feel about them, even if they were never to see the posts.

  3. Hi, Deb, I probably should have asked permission first and certainly hope you don’t mind that I included a link to this post on my blog today. It is so relevant to my point, and I believe your words need to be read.Thanks!
