Anthony Weiner, social media, your kids

Social media and your kids - short and sweet

If Anthony Weiner took the picture he knows he took the picture and the kind of non-denial denials that he is offering will just hasten the end of his career when the truth finally comes out.

Who isn't sure whether they own grey underwear with a white waistband in a world of white Fruit of the Looms?

The bigger picture here is the social media lesson that this episode can teach your kids.

Kids who don't realize that every action has a consequence.

Kids who party in an age when digital cameras take instant pictures that instantly get posted on social media web sites for all of eternity.

While some of these pictures are funny to look at the next day, this permanent internet record will not be so funny when a prospective boss or someone else looking into your past finds them and is then provided the opportunity to question your judgement or moral character.

Social media serves a very useful purpose if used wisely. If used irresponsibly social media can come back to bite you in the ass!
