Save Me From Teenage Children. . .
For those who come looking for a short, thoughtful read, a blogging life discussion, or a way to gradually ease back into the week. I offer this bloggy life question. . .
This afternoon you pass your son’s room. He has two boys from his 8th grade class over. All three 13-year-old boys are gathered around his computer. When you pass, they go red in the face and get totally silent.
The silence is a dead giveaway that you need to check on what they’ve been doing.
You’re too fast. You make it there before they realize your intent to check the computer. You find them on a flickr page of a 13-year-old girls’ sleepover. All of the girls are nearly naked. All of the girls are posed quite provactively. All of the girls are in your son’s class at school.
Your son immediately begins accusing you of invading his privacy.
After you send the other boys home, you son begs you not to ruin his life.
How do you respond?
