Transcript for Mom Pens Open Letter to Girls Posting Sexy Facebook Photos
Beginning with the blog post that has so many parents buzzing. It's a mom's open letter to girls who put sexy pictures on facebook. Abbie boudreau has the latest on the debate it has sprung. Reporter: Don't mess with this texas mom. Kimberly put an open later on her blog asking female friends of her teenage son, to stop posting sexy photos on facebook. Wow, you sure took a bunch of SELFIES IN YOUR SKIMPY PJs THIS Summer. Saying if you post a sexy selfie or link to an inappropriate youtube video, even once, it's curtains. There's no second chances with pics like that. The blog is sparking online debate. How much should parents manage their teens on social media? I don't think she's being reasonable. We all did stupid things when we were younger. You can't penalize other children if your children are involved with. It has to be your child's responsibility or, in turn, your responsibility. Reporter: What do you think about what this mom did? I think it's commendable that she would stand up for her son. Reporter: On her blog, hall says, if you're friend with the hall boy on facebook, instagram or twitter, you're friends with the whole hall family. And california mom, diana wagner, agrees with hall's approach. And goes further, monitoring her 17-year-old's facebook, twitter, instagram, even his cell phone. I wouldn't say extreme. He does have freedom and privacy. But we try to help him understand that it's a dangerous world. And we want him to be safe. Reporter: For "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. Thank you for having me. I think on the whole, it's a good message. It's showing a mom who is involved. Who is involved, watching social media. And someone who is saying, let's have some teenage self-respect, boys and girls. My problem is the developmental piece. The developmental age is where they figure out who they are. It's ego identity versus role of confusion. And the role of the parent is to guide them, not making the decisions for them. By blocking them, she's stunting the developmental process. But protecting her boys, right? She's protecting them, but she can't shield them from everything. Her goal as a parent is to teach them right from wrong. Do you have a conversation with them? What's your answer? What she's doing is that she's starting dialogue. But she can't finish the dialogue. It's giving her views on what good judgment is. Her views on what right or wrong. And asking her boys what they think about it. Your top three suggestions. The top three thing is be present. What she's doing. And talk all about these issues. All teachable moments. Number two, is set expectations. A lot of children make mistakes. They don't know what they're expected of them. Teach them what's okay for twitter and facebook. And what's allowable. And hold them accountable for the expectations. That's the one. We always agree on that. And I do think the policing thing is really important. Thank you, such great.
