Julianne Moore ‘lurks’ on her children’s social media accounts

julianne-moore Being aware of the many dangers of the internet, Julianne Moore keeps an eye on her children’s social media accounts to make sure they are protected. She and her husband Bart Freundlich closely monitor what their 16-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter are doing while online.

“It’s a scary world out there. I’m all over it with my kids,” Julianne says. “My son has a Facebook page which he uses but he knows that his father and I… lurk on it, so that if we see something untoward we can talk to him about it.”

The 53-year-old actress strongly believes it is her duty to protect her children and make sure they don’t fall prey to the darker side of the internet. That’s why she and her husband keep close tabs on their kids’ online activities julianne-moore-liv-helenand they are not worried about invading the children’s privacy.

“In my opinion you don’t get to have privacy when you’re only 16! My daughter has an Instagram account on my phone, which is quite boring at the moment because I keep having to look at her pictures, which are all of kittens and cupcakes, but it’s what you do,” Moore added.

    Julianne Moore is a great mother. She is trying her best to protect her kids from negative influence and getting into the real trouble on internet. Yes, indeed internet is not a safe place for youngsters, especially when our parents are popular and rich. And I agree with Julianne, sixteen is not the age to keep privacy. This is a difficult age when teens need to discuss what is going on in their lives with older close people, and who comes better for this role than not parents?

    Julianne Moore is doing her best job as a parent, I agree with her – 16 years old is too immature to distinguish where the bad and the good really is. Internet is an entertaining place but can be very dangerous for the kids and teenagers as well as for the adults. The content can be different and people finding you on internet could be different too. So, it is great when parents lurk the social media sites of their kids. The kids’ security is in our hands, dear parents!

    I love Julianne Moore, all of her characters that she is performing are so modest, and I think she is same as her characters in the real life. And I am sure that it has helped her a lot, as she is one of those very few women in the Hollywood who managed to stay for such a long period of time with the same man, and now while thinking more careful I realize that I have never read anything nasty about her in the media, all I ever read were articles stating that she started working upon a new movie, or about how good mother or wife she is. Nothing nasty, that is so much surprising and at the same time refreshing. I think now I like her even more, as she is a very good example to every woman. I find it funny and cute the fact that she and her husband are lurking above their kids private social pages, one day their kids would certainly not allow them to do that, and this time is getting closer and closer, as this is what kids usually do when they enter the teenager “difficult” age. Though they are very well educated children and it is quite possible that with the help of their loving parents they will manage to go very easy through that period of their lives. I know for sure that I will grab a huge box of popcorn and will be sitting in the front seats in order to watch that.

    I guess it is not a very good thing from Julianne Moore and her husband Bart Freundlich to gaze upon the social networking of their kids, as they are literally involving into their personal life, and I am not really sure that it is a good idea, as now children might be quiet about that, and later they might start causing a lot of troubles to their parents for it, sort of payback or revenge. I know a lot of cases when kids were going crazy in the times when they were teenagers, so it is very important for a parent to keep a relationship with their child there the child would trust and be able to say anything that is bothering him or her. I guess they should stop sneaking around, and have some trust in their children, I am sure the payback they will get from them will be a surprisingly pleasant one. At least this is how I will behave with my children, I will give them the entire freedom to do anything they want to do, and would encourage them in all of their dreams and aspirations. Maybe I am saying all those things because I am not a mother yet, and when I will born my own children I will become some crazy worried mother as Julianne is. Anyway it shows her only from the positive sides.

    I understand that this article is about Julianne Moore and her husband Bart Freundlich putting their noses into their children’s business, but all I can think of is fifty three years old. Really? I think Julianne Moore looks just gorgeous for her age; I adore her, her movies and her attitude towards her family and carrier. She is the great example of a woman who is able to comprise both being a good mother and wife, and being a wonderful actress. And the crucial thing in it is that she put the top of her priorities in a right way, as it is pretty obvious that family is on the top of all her priorities. If at least a half of Hollywood actresses would act same as her than probably there wouldn’t be any divorces in Hollywood. Right now I see only a few actresses that I totally respect due to their total loyalty and devotion to their families, and those actresses are: Julia Roberts, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Garner and Catherine Zeta Jones, awe and I almost forgot Jessica Alba, who is also a great example.
