Pen Pals!!!

 Pen Pals: Kim Hall, a mother-of-four from Austin, Texas, recently wrote an open letter to her three sons' female Facebook friends. The letter, which has been viewed over 5 million times, reads:

Dear girls,

We have teenage sons, and so naturally there are quite a few pictures of you lovely ladies to wade through [on social media]. Wow – you sure took a bunch of selfies in your pajamas this summer! Your bedrooms are so cute! Our eight-year-old daughter brought this to our attention, because with three older brothers who have rooms that smell like stinky cheese, she notices girly details like that.

I think the boys notice other things. For one, it appears that you are not wearing a bra.

I get it – you’re in your room, so you’re heading to bed, right? But then I can’t help but notice the red carpet pose, the extra-arched back, and the sultry pout. What’s up? None of these positions is one I naturally assume before sleep, this I know...

Those posts don’t reflect who you are! We think you are lovely and interesting, and usually very smart. But what are you trying to say?

And now – big bummer – we have to block your posts. Because, the reason we have these (sometimes awkward) family conversations around the table is that we care about our sons, just as we know your parents care about you...

In our house, there are no second chances, ladies. If you want to stay friendly with the Hall men, you’ll have to keep your clothes on, and your posts decent...

I know that sounds harsh and old-school, but that’s just the way it is under this roof for a while. We hope to raise men with a strong moral compass...

Every day I pray for the women my boys will love. I hope they will be drawn to real beauties, the kind of women who will leave them better people in the end. I also pray that my sons will be worthy of this kind of woman, that they will be patient – and act honorably – while they wait for her...

You are growing into a real beauty, inside and out. Act like her, speak like her, post like her.

I'm glad we're friends.

Mrs. Hall
