If there’s one thing I’ve learned from being on the Internet it’s that people are nuts. Really. There are a lot of strange folks on the loose out there.
Yes, there are lots of nice people too but I don’t think I realized just how cuckoo people can be until so many of them started showcasing their nuttiness on the Internet and Facebook in particular.
I understand inappropriate and disgusting updates from kids who don’t yet fully realize the repercussions of their actions but parents? People in charge of raising other human beings? What excuse do they have? Especially when their Facebook overshares are so embarrassing and personal for their children?
Of course you’ve heard of STFU, Parents. If you haven’t you should head over there right now and kill an hour of work perusing the archives of Blair Koenig’s excellent work because some of the stuff featured there will blow you mind. By the way, Koenig is the proud author of STFU, Parents: The Jaw-Dropping, Self-Indulgent, and Occasionally Rage-Inducing World of Parent Overshare which you can purchase and send anonymously to your oversharing Facebook friends! Or, you know, just hand it to your annoying sister-in-law in person.
For now, though, check out the 20 worst parenting overshares on Facebook. I mean, what are these people thinking? Like I said, people are nuts, man. Learn from these mistakes, people! And don’t embarrass your children on the Internet! It may seem like a fleeting update but your friends, family and neighbors are reading and will always know that thing about your child!
