Dex got an email yesterday, an email we haven’t had a chance to discuss yet. An email from a friend of his, teasing him about something I wrote about him on this blog, a long time ago. Something taken out of context, particularly given the inexperience of these kids online at 10 years old.
But it raises a point.
Even though I am totally fine with what I have written in the past – otherwise I would not have posted it – but now that Dex is growing up… it changes the dymnamics of everything.
When our kids where younger, there was so much conversation regarding mommy bloggers using and abusing their children online, but honestly – I poo-pooed it. At that time, the stories were part of our collective family history.
But as Dex has gotten older, I have held stories back – knowing that they are now more his than mine.
But what about the stories from the past, that his friends can find at a click or a button, that he may now want burried.
I think he and I need to look at them together and talk about it.
What do you think?
