If at first you don't succeed...

One of my son's middle school teachers friended him on facebook when he was in high school. She's my age. BTW, *I* am not friends with my kids on FB as I don't wish to read about all their goings on. What I need to know, they tell me. I can't imagine why a former teacher would want to friend my son. Creepy, I say.

My husband knows the pws I want him to know. He doesn't know them all; and I don't know all his. We're married, but still entitled to privacy. I wouldn't share my pws with my family or my friends.

Jeff knows it and he's already said he'll share if you die. ;)

LOLOL. That's it. End of story. Literally.

My daughter has one friend who occasionally, she'll stop by my office and say, "I need a hamburger! Wanna go to lunch?" But she and my daughter are (young) adults. And, were I to introduce her to someone, I'd probably STILL say, "My daughter's friend, and mine too."

I share mine with no one. If I die, no one gets to read.

Right. Teachers were not friends to my sons. My son's friends were not (and still are not) my friends. They are his friends.

Not what I meant...I meant that most friends don't share passwords. Some people don't share that with their spouse.

The exception I'll make to that is high school students. If a freshman is friends with a senior, and 3 years later, they're 16 and 19, obviously, they're still friends, even though on is an adult.

But if the acquaintance with a child is from 2 adults being friends, then no. My kids are NOT your friends, until they're adults, themselves.

I was thinking the exact same thing - all of these book clubs sharing an Amazon account is probably against TOS... :)

I had the same thought lol

Something just hit me. "Son of a very close friend."

How close? It's not normal for other adults to know peoples' Amazon passwords. Is there something you're not telling us?

I didn't like an adult calling my son "friend" when my son was 12.
Being the adult trumps friendship.

Yeah, I'd prefer it if other adults didn't try to help my kid with CYA.

Exactly. Kids need to learn lessons like this.

Looks to me like she is trying to save some 7th graders backside so the parents don't find out that the kid took the device to school, because this still is not making any sense. JMO

Because some kids are just jerks.

It doesn't matter. It's not your Kindle, it's not your account, it's not your child and it's not your place.

I remember a kid in our school around 6th grade who stole school books. Yes, he stole school books and hid them.

The child is a friend. The father is a friend. I re-read my original post and can see that I might have easily been mistaken for a child. I should have made it clear that I am an adult.

All the more reason for the child's parent(s) to deal with it. Maybe continuing to take it to school isn't such a good idea.

Princeling has asked when he can take his Kindle to school. I told him when he was responsible enough not to lose it or break it, and when he was big and strong enough to keep anyone from taking it from him.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 14, 2012, 11:22:27 AM PST
I wonder what the ratio is between 7th graders who read books without pictures to 7th graders who would steal other peoples' stuff?
