Mother's Day is almost here, and to celebrate we wanted to give mothers a chance to discuss familial Facebooking, and how social media plays into parenting. Should moms "friend" their kids on Facebook? Do their kids even want to be friended? What do people really think about parents who make Facebook pages for their babies? Do families hide things from each other online? And don't forget, we have demographic breakdowns to shed more light on the answers to those questions.

So whether you're a mom yourself, or simply have a mom, we want to know your thoughts on how social media relates to parenting. When you have a chance, be sure to take our 10-question Mothers and Social Media Quick Poll. And don't forget to send your mom a Mother's Day poke!

    No, not at all
    I'm not ashamed to show them what I do, indeed I have nothing to hide and I show myself to them, if they don't like what I do on-line then too bad for them because it's my on-line activity and not theirs.

    That philosophy will end you up in an end that has everyone throwing rocks at you: no one is perfect and they will always find a reason to ostracize an individual that doesn't correspond with their outlooks.
  • Roberto Anthony... 2012/04/25 21:53:11
    Well, I'd rather want to be criticized or hated for who I am than being loved for something I'm not.

    Of course I do.They don't have to know who I talk to or what I post.
  • smitty Lucy Kr... 2012/04/25 18:24:49
    You wouldn't like me then. I have the usernames and passwords to all my kids accounts. I also have their emails forwarded to me at work.

    When they reach 18, I am no longer legally responsible for them.

    They have no clue that I do either.

    u r violating their privacy if u were my parent and i found out u did all that stuff id move out. the least you can do if u want to b a crazy lunatic non-trusting parent is at least tell them what your doing
  • smitty sugar plum 2012/04/26 13:24:41
    They have no rights. They live in my house. They know the rules, straight up. I am responsible for them until they are 18.

    My daughter already said she was gonna leave. I got my wallet.. gave her 5 bucks and said there is the door. I will not be held hostage in my own house. I don't ask much of my kids. I expect a lot though.

    i honestly hope 4 ur and your fams sake that ur parenting logic works out
  • smitty sugar plum 2012/04/26 21:28:45
    Oh it will. The kids just need to realize who the parents are. Mine do.

    I have told them I am not here to be your friend. I am here to get you ready for life. I can be your friend as long as you realize I am the parent and what I say goes.

    They may not be the most intelligent of kids, but every teacher has stated the are well behaved and a joy to have in class. They respect authority yet know when it crosses the line. When they leave the dinner table they have to excuse themselves. If not they sit for 15 minutes and do the dishes. Just examples.

    wat abt your daugter
  • smitty sugar plum 2012/04/27 13:23:41
    What about her?
  • sugar plum smitty 2012/04/27 16:25:08
    sugar plum
    did she leave and/or doing all the things u said ur kids do
  • smitty sugar plum 2012/04/27 16:28:49 (edited)
    Oh she walked out the door.. then went behind the pool and laid down on a towel.

    I went out and started cleaning the pool about 30 minutes later and asked how running away was going? She laughed and said I can't do anything on 5 bucks.

    But with that said... A parent should know their kids and their attitudes.

    Sure. I'm anonymous here on SH and a few other places, but on FB, I'm not. It allows me a
    bit more freedom.

    Hey I don't just hide certain things about my life on the internet alone; I hide the same things and even more in the real world.
    If anyone's saying that the internet is causing people to be more discreet about theirselves then I'd totally have to disagree.

    Hidding gives you more problems.
    Transparency is the best and most benefit yielding conduct.

    I don't want my parents to see my High Times page... sadly, they are close minded.

    Hi Kyra. Is called generation gap, not closemindedness. Most parents are lke yours.
    Enjoy them.
  • smitty niviong... 2012/04/25 18:26:40
    Once a person hits the parental status they will realize it.
