I am so glad I am not a teenager today.
One of the benefits of being an adult and not being in High School or Middle School is you have the ability to make your own friends and can avoid those horrible feelings of exclusion, cliques, etc. Middle School and High School makes (forces) our children deal with other children on daily basis, whom they would never choose as friends in the future.
As a parent of middle and high school girls, FACEBOOK just intensifies those feelings of exclusion and cliquieness. Kids not only hear about all the parties they were excluded from, now they get to seeing all the fun people were having without them.
It is so hard being a kids now days and the Internet really brings it home. I think our darling teens could use a little etiquette these days. DO NOT TALK ABOUT PARTIES AND DO NOT PUBLISH PICTURES OF YOUR PARTIES-SEND AN EMAIL OF THE PICTURES INSTEAD.
