LET’S TAKE THIS OFF-LINE

Reader's Digest International - - Drama In Real Life -

Here’s the prob­lem: You’ve dis­cov­ered that your beloved teenager— the child you rocked to sleep and whose boo­boos you kissed—trolled some­one on­line. Do you A) ex­plain the er­ror of his ways, B) take away his de­vices, or …

Why didn’t I think of that?! ... C) hu­mil­i­ate him in front of his friends. That, says KCAL in Los An­ge­les, is what one anony­mous mother de­cided to do. In an ef­fort to teach her son the les­son of all lessons, she took over his Face­book ac­count and left this post: “Hi, this is B----’s mom. I wanted to let all of you know that he is no longer al­lowed on Face­book due to choices he made. He posted on Face­book per­sonal in­for­ma­tion about some­one that was rude. Be­cause he chose to make her mad by spread­ing per­sonal in­for­ma­tion, I thought he should know how it feels when the ta­bles are turned. He wet the bed un­til he was 8.” Mak­ing mat­ters worse for the boy, some of his friends “liked” the post.
