Have to share this piece from Monica Vila, co-founder of TheOnlineMom, by way of @Mashable called 6 Tips for Better Facebook Parenting.  Go ahead, delve in and put yourself in all of these folks’ shoes for a few mins.

What really got my attention was the crowdsourcing response of #theonlinemom Twitter chat.  A whopping 400 participants joined the discussion about alternatives to shooting nine bullets through a rebellious daughter’s laptop.
