The wildly popular social-networking site has changed the world in a lot of ways. Has it changed your parenting style,too? Facebook has changed our social DNA, and we can't deny it. Parenting in the time of Facebook has its pros and cons. While it's easy to get resources and information on parenting and child rearing, the challenge is learning how to filter the information. Facebook is also a venue for moms and dads to be virtual stage parents, posting pictures and stories of the latest milestones of their kids. "As all parents are competitive when it comes to their kids (even when they don't admit it, haha, there is this tendency to compare and sometimes expect more from the little ones. I am guilty of this sometimes so I often have to remind myself to relax and enjoy each day with kids.

I do not think that it makes much of a difference. Yes I tend to be on the computer instead of with my kids but I always make time for them. Especially when they need something. I do not find myself beiing competitive at all. My kids are the best they can be and that is all I expect of them. It does not matter what anyone else's kids are like compared to mine. They are all different.
