What To Do?

Hmmmm. I am my daughter's friend on Facebook, and the other day I saw something she wrote which gave me more information than she probably wants me to know.
It isn't THAT big of a deal.
But I want to discuss it with her nonetheless.
Except, if she knows I saw something on her Facebook page, then she might stop writing 'everything' and then I won't have a secret way of finding things out.
Still, it seems crazy to let this opportunity slip by. Because I think it could result in a good conversation. Open sharing. Ya know?
But what if knowing I saw her note causes her to stop writing them?

Oh, what's a mom to do???

Wow... tough decision for sure.

I have found that in some instances, the conversation can turn to whatever was on the FB page without me outright asking about it.

Pray that such an opening will occur. :o)

Jodi - God could do that! I'll pray. Thanks!

She knows you're her FB friend right? Then she has to also know that you will see, read, and maybe comment on the things she posts...right?

Larie - Yes. She does. but I don't think she always thinks about that fact when she's on FB.
I actually have an agreement with my son - that I won't comment on his things. He unfriended me when I did that!
Now we're friends again, on the condition that I won't leave comments. How AWFUL for teen boys to know your mom is part of your life! LOL
'Course, he can't have a FB page if I'm NOT his friend. But I'm sticking to my agreement. (Still reading, though.) *wink*
