Some say that the AOC have reacted too strongly by banning these boys from the Olympic Village after their event. But would you be happy if your sons posted a photo like this? What impression does it give of these boys? How would a potential employer view it? What about a possible real estate agent? A Scholarship Interview Panel? The Footy Coach? A future girlfriend? Your son’s children – your grandchildren? The police?
Your teens might say, ‘It’s not fair’.
Your answer: Being aware of your digital footprint and your digital reputation is your responsibility. Are other people’s perceptions fair – maybe not but they are out of your control if you post a picture like this.
