What to Do When Your Parents Join Social Media

Having your parents on social media can be super stressful—they like and comment on everything. Here’s what to do to keep anxiety at bay when your parents log into your favorite social sites.

1. Decide

When parents lurk on Facebook it can cause tension. Their comments about racy club photos and alarming status updates can drive you crazy. The first step in avoiding the drama is to decide if your relationship with your mom or dad is open enough for them to be exposed to the person you really are. If you’re comfortable enough to let them in, then accept their friend request. If not, jump ship!
