  • I would do something to stop these people from sending it out, I sure as heck don't want anything like that coming from my house. I don't know who you would go to, but maybe call the police and ask them, or talk to the post office? Keep the evidence though!! I know it seems extreme to do something like that, but people shouldn't be sending stuff out like that because it can get into the hands of minors which is illegal. PLEASE DO SOMETHING!!!

  • I would let it go as far as the kid goes. The bigger deal you make of it, the more it will remain in her memory. Kids see things they shouldn't, it happens. At least it was a picture and not something in real life. I remember when I was a kid any time you'd go to Time Square in NY the place would be filthy with that sort of stuff. It was all over the ground, like the sidewalks were made out of them or something. Kids are fascinated by it, but it's not enough exposure to do any lasting damage to her. I'd say it would be more harmful if it were something that you personally just left laying around the house. She clearly knows she got a hold of something that was not yours and was not right.
