    I can't stand when people say they're married but they're not xD
    It's just so silly.

    I'm sorry but that wasn't a very mature message.

    You are probably right. I've been super stressed lately, and I could have said it better than I did. However my former kid, is not a kid, he's 19. I call them kids, because they are, out of 30 kids, I have only had 3 under 16. Usually my kids are 16-21. It was also sent in a private message.


    When the kids come to me, they are all delinquent youth, all coming out of detention centers, or residential placements. They have broken into cars and houses. I don't really baby them. I could for sure have worded the message I sent better, but I don't baby the kids, they are not some innocent little thing. I do talk to them in a way that others might find abrasive, when they mess up.

    The issue here is that it wasn't really messing up, it's a popular culture thing that many kids are doing it.
    When I was in school, kids got engaged, without a ring. I think it's probably just that taken to a new level.


    However I do believe that it's making teens think early that marriage is something disposable.

    Oh goodness...
    All of my friends had 'married to' as their facebook status' with their friends and their boyfriends, etc. and I can guarantee you NONE of us thought marriage was 'disposable'- you're right it is 'popular culture' but I don't think it warranted that kind of message to the kid (and yes I say kid, I still consider MYSELF a kid). He didn't do anything 'bad', he wasn't meaning to offend you personally... it's really none of your business what he decides to set his relationship status as on Facebook. And for a kid that spent any part of his life in the foster system, I think that's the last thing he needs to be berated for.

    Alexiscristina, it is her business what those children say and post verbally or visually.
    Children today are exposed to far too much information and try to act as adults .
    There is a big difference between dating and married.
    I would not be very comfortable with my young daughters posting that they were married on Facebook.
    How one presents themselves during their youth carries over into adulthood.
    I think the idea of anyone "dating" during elementary or JR high is absurd.
    Let those children be Children and not rush into adulthood. Long before they are ready for it. Shalom
    FGRanch and damnedEvans like this.
