I think that you need to talk to the girl's parents - and I think your daughter wants you to. I don't think she'd have shown you the photo unless she thought that something needed to be done.

Its really sad and I agree with jeee. If I were you I'd tell her mum rather than her dad though. If it's been passed around at school you could tell her head of year or other female teacher.

Do it through school? You could send in a note as a concerned parent. School have the resources too and could help the family and especially the girl.

Why on earth are you worried about contacting her? Why on earth would any of you hide behind the school?

This is a serious issue and you should be telling her mother/father what you have seen straight away. But I would ask them not to reveal to their daughter how they found out, in order to protect your daughter.

Please call them and tell them - this girl needs protection and help.

if it was my daughter, I'd want to know. Too serious not to involve her parents directly IMO

The parents and the school need to know. The distribution can also be a police matter as technically it's distribution of child pornography - hence it's essential that it's known about.

You should absolutely tell her shock. Imagine if it was your daughter, I'm sure you would want to know.

If they are on facebook the girl and her mother need to know asap if they are to have any chance of removing them sad. If the boys and girls are at different schools, it is a little harder to deal with, but if the photos were uploaded by one of the boys without the girl's permission, then it is cyber-bullying and they should be stopped. Therefore the schools (both of them) should be told as much information as you have.

You can ask to have your daughter's name kept out of it.

well done twoteens. Hopefully she has a supportive Mum who will help her get over this and move on in a better direction. You did the right thing and should you start to get flack from anyone (in RL) over this, feel free to PM me x

Well done - that must have been a difficult conversation.

Well done. You 100% did the right thing - even though it's a horrible situation to be in. I've had to do it a couple of times but through work so you are definitely to be commended.
