Desperate for any crumb of information I creep them on Facebook, I text more often than I should, and out of desperation I rearrange my schedule so I’ll be available for the once popular phone call when I know they don’t have class…not that they call. How busy could their college lives possibly be? Their responding texts are minimal, and they haven’t updated their Facebook accounts in several months— no posts, and no pictures. I ask around, and no they haven’t blocked me.
Then I hear from a secret informant that my child who is at school in New York mentioned me on snapchat…”something really nice.” Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hal-le-lu-ja!
I ask my sixteen year old son to explain what snapchat is and how it works and to help me get on it. His initial reaction was to play dumb. “I really don’t know mom.” — Mom was said as a three syllable word.
I said: “That’s okay, I’ll figure it out.”
I would categorise his response to that statement as a dramatic over reaction:
“YOU CAN NOT BE ON SNAPCHAT. PARENTS RUINED FACEBOOK!”
I didn’t violate any social media laws, and still my son forbids me from snapchatting? “Parents ruined Facebook?” Was it the recipes or the baby pictures?
