There are unwritten rules that everyone ought to abide by when using Facebook (political rants and religious agendas, no thanks!). But that statement rings true doubly for parents. The simple fact is, when you have kids, you just have to be more responsible. I know, it's a bummer sometimes, but hey, you knew this going into parenthood, didn't you?
Here are 6 dos and don'ts for parents who are on Facebook. Happy liking!
Don't Post Photos of Any 'Gross' Baby Stuff
Poop, urine, vomit. This is all fine and well for people who have kids (though, not sure they want to see other children's poop), but for people who don't, have a little courtesy, thanks.
Do Post Photos of Your Child
If you're on Facebook, don't be the weird, stalker person, who never posts anything. Show us your cuties!
Don't Post 'Sexy' Photos of Yourself ...
If you and your kid -- and your kid's friends -- are "friends" on Facebook, probably best to omit any hot bikini shots. No kid wants to see that.
Do Like 'Appropriate' Pages
Your favorite TV show, a celeb you like, CafeMom -- those are all "appropriate" things to be a fan of on Facebook if your kids are on, as well. Might want to simply check the Fifty Shades of Grey page once in a while as opposed to becoming a full-on follower. Your child will think you're into some weird stuff.
Don't Post 'Embarrassing' Pics of Your Kid
If your child is old enough to be on Facebook, they're old enough to be embarrassed. You may think his first potty pic is adorable, but odds are, he won't.
Do Post Tasteful Photos of Your Newborn
Newborn photos are gorgeous, but no need for a delivery room play-by-play. A simple pic of you and your new family member in the hospital is just perfect.
