I think my 9 year old daughter might be getting sexually active! This is going to give me an ulser. I think her own privacy is important but I have seen some of the texts from her friends and this scares me! I have not told her that I know about this but I need a good reason to take away her cell phone.
First of all, children do need some sort of privacy. Otherwise they will never learn to grow into independent adults. When it comes to the cell phone, its not hers, its yours. She just gets to use it. Any call or text she makes or receives IS YOUR BUSINESS. Especially if you are afraid she may be experimenting with sex. I would tell her to let her friends know that those kinds of texts are not allowed and she will get her phone taken if it happens again. Then, if it does happen again..... TAKE HER PHONE! And she's only 9.... its perfectly acceptable to not allow hert to go anywhere where there might be a chance she could have sex. Also.... If you haven't had "the talk" with her, do it now!! She needs to know the consequences of her actions. If you have had the talk, talk some more. You can never talk to your kids too much!
