alison....dont be offended, i wouldn't 'friend' my mum on facebook either and i'm 37. but i love her to bits. from a sons perspective, all you have to do is be loving and understanding. give him a few more years and you will 'get him back', he's just in that unfortunate time 14-24 when he knows better than you
Just out of interest, why wouldn't you "friend" your mum on facebook?
because i don't necessarily want my mum to see everything i get up to
. my sisters can show her stuff about me, but they act as a 'filter'.
we had a major issue last year when i posted some pics on my fb account of a night out with our NCT friends. their were some 'amusing' photos involving fake penises a'la groucho mask and her sister went mental because her nieces also saw them. simple solution was to unfriend my sis in law. anyone who is in the slightest bit prudish does not belong on my friendlist.
