Ok, I may not be a typical parent. I don’t know what you consider typical, but I am strict concerning social media and Gracie. Yesterday, a social predator contacted her.
First, she disobeyed me by accepting a fried request without my permission. She thought it was OK because he said he was a cousin of one of her friends at Church. He was not. Honestly, she’s not allowed to friend anyone without my permission. That’s a rule.
I just happened to be checking her facebook account as she was personal messaging this predator. I was reading the messages as they were typing because I did not know this person. He told her he was at Church the night before. He was not.
He started asking her if she was in a relationship. She said yes. She does have a little boyfriend that she sees only at Church. He asked if they were serious, she said yes. I guess Church is serious. He then said, ARE YOU A VIRGIN? I said, bring me that phone. Then, I took over typing. I told him he has been talking to a 47 year old woman and what I would do to him (and it was NOT nice at all) and told him that I would report him to facebook and block him.
I then went to my account and messaged him and told him that he had messaged the wrong little girl. That I was married to a ex-marine, a black belt and man who did not mind going to jail if his daughter was hurt.
This man’s facebook has been deleted since this happened. Please keep an eye on your kids social media accounts. Gracie has begged for a snapchat, but I won’t let her have one. Believe, in our crazy life, we just stay in our tiny little bubble!
