10 facebook posts I don't want to see

I'm pretty sure this dog will never know how many like's she'll get, nor will it change her life.  However, you need to get one if you're posting this.
Did you ever see a Facebook post and just cringe? There are some that crack me up, like the friends/relatives fighting after one person posts something they clearly shouldn’t – we all then become witnesses to a friendship dissolving. For the most part, I love what I read.  It keeps me in touch with a... Read more »

Red equal sign fanatics: Relax people, it's just Facebook

Red equal sign fanatics:  Relax people, it's just Facebook
I’ve been traveling with my two oldest daughters looking at colleges and interviewing with coaches for the past four days.  I have been driving, sleeping, talking, laughing and eating my way through the midwest.  The one thing I haven’t been doing is checking social media.  I just didn’t have time and with the exception of...

Lulu app: A Dating Girls Best Friend
You make a connection with a guy on Match.com.  You start exchanging e-mails.  You start exchanging texts.  It’s time to meet. The problem?  You know absolutely nothing about him.  You don’t know if he’s sincere or blowing smoke.  You don’t know any of his friends.  You don’t know any of his friend’s friends.  You don’t...

Cyber Monday vs Black Friday

Cybermonday.com  This is a one-stop shop that shows you almost all of the great deals out there.  There are just so many, that it takes forever to get through them all.
For the last segment of my Black Friday Series, I need to address Cyber Monday.  I would also like to start by saying I’m not a huge fan.  This day does NOT always have the best online deals and kind of like Black Friday, you need to do your homework to know you’re getting a... Read more »

Obama - Romney Debate: Advice to Facebook posters

Obama - Romney Debate: Advice to Facebook posters
The number of posts showing up on my facebook quadrupled last night.  It was a struggle to find someone not talking about the Obama/Romney debate.  On the one hand, it’s fantastic that so many are interested in the political process.  On the other hand, the debate really brought out the crazy in so many.

Thanks Facebook, for revealing Stupid Parents

Thanks Facebook, for revealing Stupid Parents
I remember some really crazy Fourth of July celebrations when I was living in Newport Beach, California.  The city closed off the boardwalk and we had make-shift parades on roller blades and beach cruisers.  It was an ‘anything goes’ type attitude and being out of control was the norm.  The details remain locked in my...

Facebook Should be Banned in the Summer
When kids go to school, it’s expected that there will be days that your child will come home and say, “everyone was invited to Susie’s party.  Everyone except me.”  It’s happened in my house on way more than one occasion, and it always leads to a heartbreaking weekend where I’m trying to do everything possible...

Facebook can turn us all into insecure 12-year-old girls

Facebook can turn us all into insecure 12-year-old girls
I was looking at my older daughter’s facebook account, and saw it was filled with pictures of groups of kids smiling, laughing, having an amazing time together.  My first thought was, Ahhh, to be young again – how fun.  It wasn’t until I saw a group that my daughter is close friends with, and she...

"Driving and Facebooking is not Safe"

"Driving and Facebooking is not Safe"
I was driving my daughter from one practice to the next, and we noticed the car in front of us swerving.  I pointed it out, and wondered if they were drunk.  I pulled along the side of the car and saw a woman about 30 years old with her head buried into her phone and... Read more »

Thumbnail image for 'How NOT to parent your troubled teen - Have you seen this video?'
A friend of mine sent me this video and asked me what I thought.  At first I thought I was going to watch a witty adult finding a fun way to discipline their child. The first thing I noticed was the cigarette.  For some reason, I just kept focusing on his cigarette instead of the... Read more »
