    Poop, urine, vomit. This is all fine and well for people who have kids (though, not sure they want to see other children's poop), but for people who don't, have a little courtesy, thanks.

    If you're on Facebook, don't be the weird, stalker person, who never posts anything. Show us your cuties!

  • Don't Post 'Sexy' Photos of Yourself ...

    If you and your kid -- and your kid's friends -- are "friends" on Facebook, probably best to omit any hot bikini shots. No kid wants to see that.

    Your favorite TV show, a celeb you like, CafeMom -- those are all "appropriate" things to be a fan of on Facebook if your kids are on, as well. Might want to simply check the Fifty Shades of Grey page once in a while as opposed to becoming a full-on follower. Your child will think you're into some weird stuff.

  • Don't Post 'Embarrassing' Pics of Your Kid

    If your child is old enough to be on Facebook, they're old enough to be embarrassed. You may think his first potty pic is adorable, but odds are, he won't.

    Newborn photos are gorgeous, but no need for a delivery room play-by-play. A simple pic of you and your new family member in the hospital is just perfect.
