My dd's friend slept over Friday, we haven't known her long but she seems very sweet, clever, polite. I have very strict rules on FB for my dd, all her notifications come to me so I see exactly what she is up to, she has to use the computer in the same room as me plus no laptops or phones in bedrooms or at night.
Foolishly I dropped this rule for the sleepover, most of the time they were making up photo collages etc on Facebook and I kept wandering in to see what they were up to, a few times I heard they were on chat so I deliberately went in to check what they were up to, dd's friend was on chat and ended the call abruptly, my dd was on the other side of the room. Didn't seem to be doing anything untoward. But I decided to check chat history and there were a few disturbing messages to boys from dd's friend, nothing really overtly sexual but just stuff like 'will you get with me' 'will you get with (my dd)' etc, one about the size of my dd's friends boobs and one boy had signed off saying something like 'oh and you can suck me off' I'm totally shocked, these are all boys they know, all boys their own age, they all go to their school, is this how some 12 year old lads talk now? What if she was doing something inappropriate on the webcam? I don't think so as I kept walking in and I checked the history and they turned off the computer as requested when I went to bed but I'm still worried.
The thing is, the background to this I have now found out is that this was all though my dd's FB account as her friend has been banned from computer and phone. My daughter told me this is because her ex boyfriend had sent dd's friend a naked photo of himself, parents found out, banned her. Of course she know wants to use my daughter's phone etc. She does seem totally boy obsessed (that's not to say my dd isn't, but this friend seems to need constant approval from teh boys, lots of teh messages were asking who was prettiest in their group of friends etc, bit sad really)
I am prepared to read the riot act to my daughter tonight, I have changed all her passwords, locked her phone and there will be strict rules about no-one else using her phone and the computer. I am going to talk to her about reputations and being careful how you behave, even though it wasn't her doing the chat, I don't want this kind of behaviour rubbing off on her. She is a sensible girl but I fear she could be pressurised by friends, particularly as there are new ones she has just met at secondary and might want to get 'in' with but I don't know what else to do, have been worrying all day and I feel sick
I think you have done the right things so far. Not ideal behaviour but seems quite mild as to what some children that age can get upto. I would just reiterate to dd that no one but her uses her accounts as if this had gone any further and anyone was to be in serious trouble your dd would be hard pushed to prove it was not her and so she would ultimatly take the flack. lay that on thick and exxplain that sometimes the police may become involved with children over stepping sexual bounderies on the internet and dd would ultimatly be responsible for her own phne facebook etc and would be the one landed in trouble.
Thank you. They just seem so much more advanced than I was at that age, Facebook scares the crap out of me with kids so I check what she is up to ALL the time, just so cross with myself for letting my guard down because a friend was staying! Is that really quite mild? Scary
