So here it is. My daughter sent pictures of herself in a bra and undies a year ago, to someone who was then threatening her if she didn't send them. She had told me that someone she didn't know on FB (a fake profile I am sure) was making these threats, "If you don't send me pictures of yourself naked I will ruin your life". We laughed then of the irony, that her life would be ruined if she DIDN'T send such pictures. Apparently, the pictures were already sent by the time I found out about it.
Well the pictures have reared their ugly head in the form of someone created a twisted collage with freeze shots from some porno mixed in with these pictures of my daughter in her bra and undies with a note that "NAME is a big slut". I am so disappointed that my daughter sent these pictures. I told her regardless of who is doing this, it is ultimately her fault because she took the pictures. I have disconnected her phone temporarily (I am thinking at least two months) and deleted her Facebook and Instagram. I have decided not to ground her because I think she is going to need her friends around her right now for support. I think whoever did this is an old friend from an area we moved from two years ago.
All in all I have decided the internet can be an awful thing for young adolescents. My 13 year old got a phone at 11 and it seems like everything started to change at that point. My husband and I are so disappointed.
