Hope all is going well my only advise is to have a chat about your fears with using snapchat, talking to boys her age is not going to be a huge problem it's others who are older and after much more then innocent conversations that you want to protect her from so definately exspress to her your fears when it comes to her safety, also the bullying that can happen on social media snapchat is no different you can shelter them as much as you want from technology but they will find a way to get it I'd rather them be honest then lie about it at the same time set your boundaries what's acceptable at your home make it fair and agreeable by both of you and set consequences for not keeping the agreement what happens at her other home is not what you allow at your home let her feel like she has some choice in the matter though as you don't want to push her away it will be hard because there is so many conflicting opinions but as long as she knows your here to support and keep her safe rather then tell he why she can and can't do it might help in saying that teenagers have so much emotions and changes happening in their body you will have bad days and good days the only thing you can do is be there beside her for the ride she is a very lucky girl to have such a caring loving family hope all goes well in the future

A revere page sounds like a great awareness campaign I'd be more then happy to contribute to. I think it is courageous of people to upload their photo to be completely torn down by strangers in a disgusting and unimaginable way and for fun? What is really hard to understand is the traumatic impact those comments regardless of whether your the most confident person alive would impact your self identity and emotions I have made aware to quiet a few younger people I know that by commenting by scrolling by even googling that page you are accepting that kind of behaviour I guess and I completely disagree with it our youth are going through enough cyber bullying these day without having a imprint forever like that in the digital world to be circulated and ripped off for infinity more awareness about what we share and what's acceptable is getting lost and is causing huge ripple effects within our communities

Hello, I won't go into details because I'm not 100% sure of all of them but the scenerio goes 16 year old depressed and high risk suicidal has run off with her 26 year old bf who is known for sleeping with young girls, parties and drugs. What avenues can I use to support her mother and her through this situation so that I can get her to a safe place? Police say that because she is 16 they can't remove her as she is old enough to make her own decisions. What approaches would be best. I don't feel that she is safe or will be honest about her safety which is a huge concern
