Angry Posting things on facebook. - October 25th 2011, 02:27 PM

Idk where else it should go...
So, i just recently posted ONE status about me being a proud mother to my unborn child. & My mother gets told that im putting pictures of my belly up & all these status and stuff & im NOT.
But the backwards thing is, everybody she calling she tells them she gonna be a grandma but also says the bad part about how i let him in at night while she sleep and everything! But shes fussing at me about putting one status about it on facebook. Should i block all my family members from viewing my facebook? As you can see im 18 years old, my mother can't stop me from having one & i already paid her back for this laptop so its 100% mine!

If it's bothering you that much, either refrain from posting stuff like that or delete her

The way I see it is, you're eighteen.. if you want to post pictures of your pregnancy or if you want to post statuses, then do it. You're an adult. And you're having a child. It's time you do things for you and your child, and not for your family. I suggest you talk to your family members. Make it clear that you're your own person, and you can do the things that you want to do. You don't even need to defend yourself about the status update, because technically.. it's not their business or problem. Tell them in the future you'd appreciate the support, rather than their criticism, etc. If they still can't respect your wishes, you have a few options... You can delete them off of face book. They might notice, and it could cause drama..but it might be worth it in the end. If you want to be discreet, you can hide your statuses from certain people on Face Book.. and they'd never know the difference. If you need help learning how to do that, let me know, and I can help out. Hope this helped! Good luck with everything.

My mom does the same thing although because I am not a legal adult i can't really do too much. I think it's your life so do what you want.

I say its you, do what you feel is right. if nobody believes you, then yeah, I would be mad and want to delete them.

You're 18. You can post what you want and if someone has a problem with it you could either delete them, refrain from posting, make it so certain people can see your posts, or just keep posting and ignore them. Best of luck. x

I agree, just do it.
If you don't want her commenting, click the settings button near where you post statuses and you can select to block her from seeing it.

And here you are living, despite it all.

Either don't post things in the future, or hide her from your statuses. You can hide specific people from statuses or pictures, I do it with my family all the time if I'm posting something about a tattoo they don't need to know about or something. I agree, she might be overreacting a bit, yes. But still, might as well take preventative action if it really bothers you =/

Take me seriously.
I dare you.

If that's stuff you want to do, then do it.

But on the other hand, I either block certain people from seeing certain things on my profile & if I allow family to see statuses or pictures, I make sure it's okay with everyone. So you may just want to change your privacy settings.

You can set it so that your one post is blocked from her, so that you get the best of both worlds.

In my opinion I believe you should not put your whole life on Facebook. If you want people to know the private message them. In regards to your mother she will always fuss over you being pregnant or not because that is our job. She just wants right for you and with your just keep them involve but at a distant.
