  1. Thanks for brightening up my day with a very funny post. I agree that parents need to know what their children are up to on Facebook. Although I’m not sure about how I’d feel about my daughters revealing their inner most feelings etc Luckily as they are 2 & 4 yrs old I will not have to worry about that for a while 🙂

  2. My daughter has just come of facebook age and we are friends, this post had tears running down my face Hilarious!!!! Thank you x
