As a parent, am I responsible for posts that my 16 year old son posts on Facebook?

Not saying he is doing that, but he does not want me as a Facebook "friend" and monitoring his account, he says he wants his privacy. What would legal minds think about this? Thanks!
Here is the problem that I have with ANYTHING online. It is ALL anonymous and there is absolutely no way that these companies will take any steps to actually VERIFY that anything signed up for or posted comes from a SPECIFIC person or even ROBOT. There is no way, for instance, to stop me…or anyone else from starting a Facebook account with the details of YOUR DAUGHTER if I really wanted to. YOU MIGHT NOT EVEN HAVE A DAUGHTER…and the social media sites DO NOT CARE or KNOW.

Social media is a HUGE waste of time and resources. I suggest that a supervised account for your 16 year would be acceptable…but yikes.

Absolutely.

Don't assume you have no control of your minor child.
He relies upon you for his home, clothing, transportation and access to anything where a legal contract must be signed. That means he doesn't need a phone, doesn't need access to his computer unless he is doing homework, doesn't need to get a ride anywhere, and doesn't need to be given access to a vehicle, money, credit cards, or the account at the pizza shop. In fact, clean out the cupboards of all his favorite treats, and the freezer. No more Tater tots, no more Hot Pockets. Done.

If he is doing things that are dangerous, take everything away from him, and start making him act in a positive way in order to get his resources back. You DO have control, you're just not taking it. And yes, when my friends' kids do something awful, they look at me and leave the room, and I just call out after them, "You're just lucky you're not MY child!" <grin>

Doesn't makeit fun. I'm just saying, you do have ways to deal with this.
Ask someone who is old enough to remember what it was like before the internet.
First, you take the computer and the phone away.

You are not responsible for what he says on Facebook. you should not worry about what he says on FB. Let him mistakes while young. Better to lose a friend for something he said than lose a job.

More important, if a person tells you that you've hurt their feelings, you should ask what is their point. "That's offensive" – those two words do not constitute an argument.

YES you are responsible for all actions of the minor. If he created a Facebook account without your permission, then as a parent you can close his account ( shut off the Internet connection ) Minors do NOT get privacy.

well, as a parent, you can demand access to his account, or you can take away devices that he can use to access facebook.
"offensive" posts can be reported by anyone who doesnt like them. No authority will hold you responsible for anything unless he is doing illegal activity on facebook.

Being under age 18, you ARE legally responsible for EVERYTHING he says and does.

YOU are paying for his internet access. If you don;t want him using it, shut it off!

There is NO PRIVACY on the internet, and there should be none in your house. YOU own everything, and everything belongs to you. You ARE legally responsible for keeping him under control, and if he says something on Facebook, YOU are responsible

Not legally responsible, but morally so.

You would not be liable.

Acting tips?

Hey, I take acting, singing, and dancing lessons. I believe that nomatter your skill you can always improve.
Actors don't need 'tips' – they need many years of high quality training and more years of experience.

Of course you can always improve – that's obvious. Even top actors continue learning and growing their entire lives. They learn as they work, by doing unpaid acting work if they can't get paid work, by taking masterclasses and specialist workshops, learning new languages and accents, etc.

But random 'tips' aren't going to help at all.

Since you take lessons, you know that quick "tips" aren't going to help all that much.

Know you will fail many many times in this business. You know that, you will be fine.

What exactly do you need help with?

Did the Turks settle in area of Greece during period of Ottoman Empire? how long and do most in today's greece have mostly Turkish ancestry?

Update: Which percentage of people in modern day Greece are mostly of Turkish ethnicity? Update 2: can explain? or why the Turks left Greece alone but took over other areas around it? Update 3: —————————> why the Turks left Greece alone but took over other areas around it?<———————–
Yes they did. There were Turkish communities throughout what is now Greece. By 1829, the end of the Greek War of Independence, there were few left.

The Turks settled Constantinople and Edirne, they didn't really settle anywhere else in Greece.

Turks and Greek have nothing in common and will never have.
Greeks are Europeans and Christians.
Turks are Mongol Asians and Muslim.

Plot 2: A teenager who has a perfect life is shocked to find out that she's pregnant, and even more so when she loses the baby.

Plot 3: After breaking up with her super villain ex, a girl rejoins the dating scene, coming across an eclectic group of potential suitors.
OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD…

1. "a princess studying abroad…" Just to be clear, should you say, "A princess studying in NYC" or "A princess studying in (Budapest)."

You could rephrase it to make it clearer: "A princess studying in NYC MUST EVADE a trio of incompetent bounty hunters after her country and America are at war."

2. In this plot, things happen TO the woman, but she doesn't seem to DO anything, if your description is correct. Also, the idea that she has a miscarriage is so emotionally strong it might hijack the story and completely change the tone of the story.

3. Again, the super villain ex is probably making life hell for her potential boyfriends, so what does she do? How does this sound: "In a comic-book universe, a young woman must find a new love for her super-villain ex so he'll stop scaring off her potential new boyfriends."

My opinions aren't the only ones out there; it could be I don't understand the point of your plot summaries. But that's what I think…

Plot one describes a war crime, but might be funny.
Plot two sounds dull.
Plot three sounds like it may have some merit if well handled and be really bad if not.

2 seems implausible with today's knowledge that it takes sex to make a baby.

3 has the most interesting premise out of the selection.

The first is my favorite. You had me at 'quirky bounty hunters.'

My second choice would be #3.

I don't know. I'm not the writer, you are.

Do you think my sister is a very caring person?

After she heard that someone stole her father's shoes, she immediately went to the store to purchase another pair of shoes for him. She spent a large sum of her pay check on those boots. She says that she always wanted to help out my parents financially. Update: or do you think this is just something every daughter does?
I think that was very sweet of her. I'm guessing she thinking….money comes and goes, but my father won't always be here.
She wanted to give him a lasting memory to express her love and put a smile on his face. Because of her situation it had more meaning then if she was well to do.

If it were my father and he lost his favorite shoes he'd probably rant about it and complain to me as if I were the one who stole his shoes. While I'd be thinking in my head, " I have nothing to do with it. Why are you complaining to me? quite whining you big baby and go buy another pair." After all he can definitely afford it. He is very focused on money and doesn't part with his very easily.
It would depend on the circumstances and the relationship between the daughter and father.

This is her being a thoughtful daughter

She love & respect family !

i certainly do think she is. how nice and special of her.

How can you get people to answer one of your old questions on yahoo?

Like update it or something? :)
If Its Old Its Not Likely Gonna Get Anymore Answers As Its Far Down The List Many People Wont Go That Far Down The List

The best approach is to ask the question again. You will have fresh eyes looking at it. Ask a full question. Don't just ask people to answer an old question and give a link. That is a violation in most cases.

You don't since that would be a solicitation violation. Instead you just ask again, but don't overdo it and ask multiple times in a short time period.

You could just ask it again,if it's worth it

You can;pt. It just falls off teh botom of the list.
enter a NEW question, and just repeat it.

Opinion of Hiraeth as a name?

Opinion of Hiraeth as a name for a girl?

Also of Lyra, Isla, and Maira.

Any more suggestions?
Don't like it at all. Lyra and Maira are nice though.

I don't know how to pronounce it.

Lyra and Isla are great
Maira is odd

sorry I don't know how to say any of them by the spellings

sounds masculine

No thank you to any of them.

Leah and Erin, Norah and Nikki, or Meredith and Kyra for twins?

I would say Leah and Erin. They are both on the same level, if that makes sense. Like Norah is more unique than Nikki, and Kyra more unique than Meredith, but Leah and Erin are equal :) Honestly love them all though.

Leah amd Erin

Leah and Erin

Leah and Erin.

Meredith & Kyra

Leah and Erin are my favorites :)

Meredith and Kyra are by far the prettiest. Although I think Meredith and Nora would sound even better.

Meredith and Kira

Norah and Nikki are such cute names! I love it ! ps congratulations !

Opinions on these names + do you think they are too dated to use?

Brittany
Courtney
Barbara
Monica
Brittany – a bit too trailer for me (sorry ) and oh so 90s;
Courtney – very 80s/90s;
Barbara – very 70s, reminds me of Barbie, not very attractive;
I like Monica – it's ok and by far the best if these 4.

Brittany is over-used. Courtney is alright, but not great. Barbara is kind of dated. Monica is alright, but I feel like that is more of an adult name tha a kid name, if that makes any sense.

They are all fine except for Barbara. Yuck! That name only works for woman ages 50 and up and it doesn't help that it's just not a good name at all

I like Monica it sounds like a sweet name

There is a whole section of Yahoo Answers dedicated to baby names if I'm not mistaken…

Barbara is very dated but the others should work fine

Barbara and Monica are old, the other two sound fairly new.
