Hi everyone I am new into parenting and my wife found something unusual about our 13 year daughter. She has a tablet with a Instagram account given to her which is consistently monitored by my wife however she was smart enough to create a new Instagram account and message some of the boys from her school during the lockdown period, the content of the message was mostly sexual related and much of it was driven by our daughter. We also found out that she was searched for "Naked videos" from search history and my wife also spotted her naked looking and touching her body while she was watching a video in the tablet. It comes unusual and shocking to us as she has never been exposed to this. My wife had a word with her very calmly and gently in regards to her recent activities and she lied that the new account was used by a friend of hers and she never searched anything of that sort in the web. My wife also took screenshots of the Instagram messages to show it to me and when she came to know she secretly took her phone and deleted little did she know that it could be retrieved from recycle bin. Our biggest concern is that she doesn't end up doing something which she will regret for the rest of her life or gets too indulged into these and we are not able to bring her back. No child is an angel, but she comes pretty close. Exceptionally respectful, does well in school, kind and appreciative of anything I do for her. She never swears, speaks crudely or says anything inappropriate. My wife and I have been deeply in stress and we cannot stop thinking how our daughter got into this. We love her a lot and we don't want to give up on her hence we seek advise how we can control this or approach this with her. We don't think it is the right time to talk about sex education with her as she is too young to understand.
