I'm getting suspicious about my 12-year-old. She's not allowed to have a Facebook account until age 13, but even if we block social media sites at our home, she will be ale to access them on a friend's electronic. I found "sexy" photos of her on my photo library on my iPad. They're face only pictures so no inappropriate clothing but she wore makeup. She must've borrowed my makeup in our bathroom without asking because she knows very well that I do not allow her to wear makeup except lip gloss. It's possible that she has a secret Facebook account. I've heard of moms who has kids who opens two Facebook accounts because the parents monitor them. They keep one account for their parents to monitor, and the other one full of inappropriate images, inappropriate "friends" from other schools, and nude photos. They can easily block their parents, and make their account private so even if the parent opens a new account, their usual main account will be unseen. After my Internet rules for my kids: No social media until age 13, no talking to predators, no sexy images, no bad language, no cyber bullying, etc my daughter says she won't ev do any of those things but does she mean it?
