These days spankings might not be the best way to discipline our children given the type of issues we may be faced with as we try to raise them to be responsible human beings.
This father took matters into his own hands when he found out that his daughter was online pretending to be as old as 18 years old and even managed to get herself a boyfriend.
He decided to put her on blast:
Since my beautiful daughter Janiya wants to be grown and lie about her age. Saying she is 14,15,16 & 18 years old. She claims to be in love and going with a boyfriend which is completely against my rules!!!! I uncovered that she has been doing this for quite some time. She also has snuck and obtained social media accounts, also against my rules!!!! Here’s the consequence behind her actions. An age defining shirt. Yes people she is 5’9 and 10 years old. #BuddiesBarrettesBallBalls
In this day and age we cannot take any chances with our young women, not only are they not interested in dolls at 10 but internet predators are just as dangerous as the ones in white vans on the streets. We applaud this dad, from the looks of things Janiya doesn’t look very happy and unfortunately he will have to watch her much more closely.
As they get older they get more sophisticated, as a parent you have to be aware of the variety of apps kids use, Kik, Snap Chat, Text me, Instagram, Twitter and of course Facebook, with a million more being developed daily because of how profitable social media has become.
If there was a way to screen children who sign up for these accounts other than asking “are you over 18” things would be much easier, however at the same time we have to parent and not depend on gadgets to parent for us.
The internet has been helping this father, because her pictures that show her as a little girl are now viral, she wont be on the internet for awhile! BTW we loved the shirt and barrettes, well done dad.
