|"Teen Takes Family Conflict to Facebook"|
Tess, a 15 year old when grounded for drinking and missing her curfew by an hour, took to Facebook to complain. She organized an advocacy group of over 1,000 teens to protest her punishment. Her defense was that she made an honest mistake. Parents have also joined the fray. So now we have a full- blown child-rearing debate 2010 on the internet. In fact, one parent started a Facebook group, "1,000 to Support Parents Who Believe in Consequences for Serious Lapses in Judgment and Care Enough about Their Kids to Enforce the Rules". So far, Tess's parents remain unswayed by any Internet suggestions and have not reduced her punishment. Personally, I add my support to the Facebook site, "1,000 to Support Parents Who Believe in Consequences for Serious Lapses in Judgment and Care Enough About Their Kids to Enforce the Rules." How about you?
