A place for moms to connect
You should see my boyfriend's daughter's photos on Instagram. at 13 and in the 8th grade, they are very provacative. Duck Face, Full make up, hair fanned around her pillow in her bedroom giving bedroom eyes to the camera, pics of her in a backless shirt and shots of her bikini clad top boobs. Totally expectedly boys keeps asking her for sexting shots of her naked boobs. She goes to school in Keystone though where 7th grade girls are with senior boys. She looks like a college girl in her photos but she was 13 when she took those. She's 14 now but still it bothers me. I had to quit following her on Instagram as she's not my kid and I have no say in her upbringing but it was extremely upsetting to me
Oh, and her friends, fellow 13 and 14 years old, they've been having sex for awhile now
This really makes me sad! And I also wonder about those parents that don't feel it's necessary to talk to their kids. You know, the "My kid is never going to do that" attitude. Or, "they are too young for that".
People, this stuff is happening, no amount of ignoring it will make it go away.
FYI parents: If and when adults find out they have been sending partially or completely naked pics then the ones sending (even if they are just passing it on) are participating in an illegal activity and will be arrested--we had a huge issue at our middle school where one girl sent a pic to a boy she liked and it went everywhere--we had 100+ kids get arrested--all those parents brought in and more. The kids just don't understand at all--until they are the victim. This is nothing to be messed with--if you don't monitor their phones and computers then they should not have them. Kids live in a completely different world from what you did growing up--the come to school drunk, have sex in bathrooms and more. What they talk about on the bus on the way home would make 50 shades of grey look like a cartoon. Please--protect your kids. The world moves far faster than it did even 5 years ago and childhood goes fast!
