She's 12 and started going on MyLOL.Com and other sites that are VERY predator-like. She usually pretends to be "hot" and around 15-16 years old because she knows that people won't date preteens. She has usernames for example: "Sexy7" or "PrettyGirlSwag5" or "HottieGirl" or whatever. One of the websites required users to sign up with the city they're from, and my daughter has added our location but not her real name and age.
She says that kids in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade already have boyfriends! I told her that she doesn't have to have a "boyfriend" just because girls that are her age and older girls have them. I didn't even have a boyfriend as a senior in high school! I took her computer time away, and she doesn't have phones... I don't know why she's desperate, but she tells me that boyfriends love you and tell you you're beautiful but instead of listening to her nonsense about being in relationships, I asked her if she REALLY needs a boy just to tell her she's beautiful because she already is and if she REALLY needs a boy to "love" him....any advice? She's crazy over boys, and is in 7th-grade. Some of her friends are in 8th-grade and some are younger in 5th-grade and they're all crazy about boys, even girls at 10 years! She says her best friend is the EXACT same age as her and already got on a date with a boy who's from her school...
