Hi everyone, my first post although I've been reading all the helpful advice - it's good to know we're not alone! I have a 13 year old girl who in the last 2 weeks has become even more addicted to social media then ever. She has her first boyfriend - not that she told me, but my friend's daughter told her. The Insta posts from this boy and my daughter's friends use really inappropriate language calling each other hoes and **bleep**- my daughter has now also started using this kind of language in her posts. She is constantly on the phone to this boy - he never phones her though and if I ask her who she is talking to she lies. She starts screaming at me if I say anything though, and we are currently on holiday with another family. Do I wait until we get back home in a few days to have the big discussion or do it now? There are other issues too, and she had her first session with a psychologist who has suggested she has depression. I am really concerned that this situation can easily get out of control as these others encourage each other to post photos etc- I haven't found any compromising photos of my daughter yet ( probably only a matter of time)! - so act now, or wait the few days until it's just our family? Sorry for the long post, but I'm lying awake night after night worrying!
