If your kid has an account on Facebook or another social media site, you should be scared.  Very scared.  Because the Court of Appeals of Georgia ruled earlier this month, in Boston et al. v. Athearn et al., that parents can be held liable for their children’s posts.  The court found that the parents of a thirteen-year-old boy could be liable for posts by their son that allegedly defamed and inflicted emotional distress on another child if they were found to have breached their duty to supervise their son’s use of a computer and Internet account.
