dragons in the flower bed Posted January 1, 2012 Share Posted January 1, 2012 Each time one of our boys has been set loose* on Facebook, I feel like I've learned something new about him. I wouldn't have guessed my eleven-year-old would have worked so hard to be funny or that he would post about movies he watches with his dad. He's a serious bookworm. Now the middle boy, about to turn nine, has an account. We started it so he could do Khan Academy and now he's on there to find friends for Words With Friends. He's made three posts so far: one to thank his grandfather for a compliment about his profile pic choice, one to chime in on what brand of chai he likes (any), and one a comment on a story someone was talking about, saying, "With a plot like that, stories don't move well." His punctuation and spelling is flawless. I really like my kid. I guess that's all I mean to say. *By "set loose" I mean I have their password, have veto power on friends and apps, read their every message, have strict rules about grammar, punctuation and spelling, control how much time they spend there, and they know that the slightest slip-up will get them kicked off.
