Is your twelve-year-old daughter looking for boys on the internet?

Is your young daughter surfing the internet to meet boys


If your daughter spends even five minutes looking for boys on the internet it is time to have that talk you have been longing to have. Whether she is ten or twelve you have to make your feelings known and talk to her about what is and what is not appropriate for her age. She is young and unaware of the danger she is subjecting herself to. Going out in groups with friends is acceptable, but with kids her age. The following are some steps you can take to foster a good relationship with your daughter.


Advice to mom


  • Ask her to switch off the computer and come to the bedroom as you want to discuss something with her. However cross you are, do not raise your voice and say something you will later regret.
  • Explain the perils of meeting boys on the sly and becoming a victim in a rape. Spell out the danger of meeting strange boys in strange places. Point to recent cases where investigators are looking for the body of a girl after getting into the car of a stranger.
  • Do not threaten to put her out of the house or she may call your bluff and then you have a bigger problem. This is the beginning of a cross-over point where her hormones are raging and both of you are learning how to treat one another.
  • Discuss hormones and bodily changes and tell her she has reached puberty and is able to get pregnant and should stay away from boys who are older than her. She just cannot go out with a seventeen-year-old.
  • Tell her that you will trust her but if she disappoints you will not trust her again and she lose all privileges. Do not be afraid to say this.
  • Let her watch programs where young girls are pregnant and talk about how irresponsible they had been and that they are now stuck with babies they have to look after.
  • Tell her that there are pedophiles trolling the sites for young girls. If she uses the computer again for this purpose you will remove it from her room for six months. These are tough words, but they must be said; you don’t want to feel sorry after something bad has happened.
