I posted this in the spinoff thread, but I do concede there are rare occasions when lying is the less-bad of several choices.
I understand the value of a Facebook account. As I wrote, I'd probably let my kid have one if it was allowed.
I also understand the argument that it's not really a lie because no human sees the data. I don't agree that makes it less of a lie, however. We'll have to agree to disagree about that.
I guess the two things I want my daughter to take from our discussions (and coincidentally, she just asked about Facebook today because a few of her friends have accounts) are: (1) it's not okay to lie for personal gain and (2) even if we don't agree with a business's practices we don't cheat, we just don't do business there.
I do feel strongly about this for my daughter. I feel far less strongly about other kids. It's not really my business what arrangements other families make, and I'm not terribly interested in being Facebook police.
