Rise of Twitter and Facebook ‘Makes It Impossible For Parents to Send Naughty Children to Their Bedroom’

According to Alice Phillips, president of the Girls’ Schools Association,” Social media is putting unprecedented pressure on modern parenting by turning every domestic decision into the subject of “global scrutiny”, She added that mothers and fathers were becoming “less bold and intuitive” when it comes to controlling their children amid fears grumpy teenagers will broadcast disagreements to hundreds of online friends.
