Facebook Mom


Guest post of the week by Deangelo Spencer

Last night I was talking to my mom on the phone and she asked if I saw that someone I barely knew in high school had gotten married. I told her no and that I didn’t speak to them, then asked how she knew. My mom, of course, was friends with the person on Facebook and told me that she’d seen pictures of the wedding. I couldn’t believe that she was friends with the girl who she knew only through me, when I wasn’t even friends with her on Facebook. My mother’s “Facebook stalking” habits are becoming part of my daily life. Ever since she got access to internet in New Haven, I swear that she’s spent all of her free time researching the social lives of people I know so that she can make conservation with me based on what she’s seen on Facebook. Don’t get me wrong, I love my mother, but I wouldn’t like it if someone else’s mother (who I didn’t even know) was looking through all my pictures online. I told my mom that I was going to have to limit her time allowed for Facebook each day. It may sound tough, but a daughter’s got to do what a daughter’s got to do.

  3. hahah, Chay, you are speaking from your heart as mom, I remember when I told you, "I can't imagine you waiting that very late for christine"....and Khai said, "how can you not imagine? moms are moms...I am already this old and my mom still treat me the same way like I am little boy", hahahaha!

    anyway, yeah, it's hard to be mom, but their intention is always the best and safety of their kids, but like you said, sometimes, they can over-do it :) my mom was not a stalker mom, she however is very sweet to my friends since that was her request when we were younger, that she knows our friends and maybe friends family so she will have peace of mind if we sleep over in a friend's house...etc
