Internet safety

My daughter has no idea about dangers online, she doesn't get it! She is rude if I make her write pages about online safety and she thinks its fun to have nude pics! I explained CLEARLY that it is porn and she can get arrested for that and so can my husband and I. She thinks its a little game and says what's the point of being arrested for having fun taking selfie s!! We put her to counseling and took away her phone and computer time until she, the young lady, understands consequences of online pictures, predators, etc. I showed her an online article about a 15 yr old girl being arrested for nude photos as a sophomore in high school but then she said she is not 15 so she can't get arrested! I phoned her school not to allow her on the computer unless its homework she used to sneak on a computer at school. What should I do!? I'm thinking of making her join meetings at our community center for kids and teens about online safety and dangers of the online world. I already signed her up for the meetings...

Hi Rowan,

I'm really sorry you have to go through this. If this was happening to my family, I would have to send my daughter to military school or do something so severe that she would not be able to laugh it off or go around your rules. This is a game to her and/or she is hurting inside is feeding off of the reaction she is getting online. Kudos to you for sending her to counseling. I hope you're still doing that and that it is helping.

I hope this helps and best of luck.
