Hand Sanitizer and Facebook

Have you heard the latest?

Kids are using hand sanitzer to get drunk.  Yes, you read that correctly, hand sanitizer.  I cannot believe it.  They are actually drinking it or sniffing it.  What are they thinking?  What would cause anyone to think about using hand sanitizer.  Having a 13 year old and an 11 year old and hearing this my heart just fell to my feet.  It scares me to death.  What in the world will the kids think of next.  Anyone can go by hand sanitizer.  In fact, my daughter has a small bottle clipped to her school id.  What is this world coming to?

Now on to facebook:


Did you see this picture that a mother posted to facebook of her daughter?  Her daughter mouthed back to her in front of the daughter’s friends.  Do you think this is acceptable?  As a parent, I think there are better ways to parent rather than to humilate your children in the social media network.  Growing up is hard enought without your parents adding to your insecurities of growing up.  What would you do as a parent?

Finding things out about your parents.

So I was sent an e-mail today to this blog.  It is The Writing Deputy. 

This is my father’s blog.  I had no clue he even knew what a blog was.  What the heck?  The secrets your parents still keep from you no matter what age they are.  So if you read through the blog you will see that Chickie is the guest blogger today.  If you continue to read the blog you will see the book that my dad had published.

Yes, my father had a book published and that was another thing that he kept hidden from me.  He didn’t tell me about it until 1 month before it was due to be published. 

The secrets your parents keep from you.  Makes me wonder how many other secrets that have kept from me (some I’m sure I don’t want to find out but others I am sure will tell an interesting story).
