C – it’s official, I found out today that I have been UNFRIENDED on facebook by my daughter and I did not feel a thing. I was discussing a photo that she had put on facebook that I had been kind enough to take for her, when I suddenly realised that it had not come up on my facebook wall. Following further questioning of the aforesaid daughter, it transpired that I had been UNFRIENDED. Just wait till she wants some item of clothing washed, ironed and ready to wear ten minutes before she goes out. I have a plan, I am going to get a very large piece of paper and write on it “you have been unfriended” and brandish it at her. Ok, after some thought maybe this is a bit childish and I should remember that I am the adult and able to rise above such childishness, but I am not sure I can do that.
S – ok keep calm. Maybe you should remove her laptop until you have been reinstated, as it is pretty important, when they are only 15, to keep an eye on there online activity.
C – think she can get on to Facebook with her phone so not sure it will get me anywhere. Hope your day has been better and that nobody has unfriended you today.
S – it’s and a mine field this modern parenting and takes some dealing with. Jamie has returned from his school trip minus a substantial amount of kit so have been berating him about that for a large part of the day.
C – oh well, at least I have some good news from George Of The Jungle. Had a phone call yesterday; he is in New Zealand South Island, with mates, chillaxing (as the young say) – sounds like he is having a great time, weather excellent and they have wheels so all is good.
