Change Your Name

Have you heard? Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt, thinks that every young person one day will be entitled automatically to change his or her name on reaching adulthood in order to disown youthful hijinks stored on their friends’ social media sites.
 
Interesting food for thought, and yet I’m left wondering what happens to accountability?  How can we hold children accountable when their slate will be wiped clean upon reaching adulthood? I realize there will still be laws and rules, but this seems like a free pass for children to act out?  There has to be another solution.  How about parents who parent? Just a thought.
