Here we go again
DH received a message from SD (age 18) last night. She stated that she is receiving death threats by multiple guys on social media. I only engaged to ask if she reported it. She said that she did. I disengaged from the conversation. I am sure there is more to the story than someone just picking her out of millions of people to send her death threats.
It was just a few short months ago that SD was making threats on social media and was placed under house arrest for a few weeks. She has NEVER been able to handle herself on social media and her parents never monitored her. She chit chatted with child molestors. Yes, more than one. She would send naked pictures of herself to any man or boy who asked. She would threaten people, invite strange men and boys to her house and the list goes on and on. She would put herself in danger and her parents just couldn't seemed to stop her. She was given access to internet while she was alone at home. If BM shut off the internet, she knew how to steal the neighbors wifi. She only lost internet access while she was with DH whenever I was around. It is much easier to just give her the phone or computer to entertain herself than to actually monitor what she was doing or tell her no. I always offered for her to watch tv or for her to do something else whenever she asked for the computer or phone. She didn't put up a fuss with me and I wasn't mean about it. I could never understand how her parents couldn't get her off the computer or stop giving her the phone if they were not going to educate her on the dangers of social media. She only came to our home to visit until she was 12 years old. DH started seeing her outside of the home at that time.
SD asked DH to buy her a phone for graduation and he did. My first thought, I wonder how long it will take for her to put herself in danger or threaten someone. It took less than 2 months.
She will be going to college the first of next month, IF she can keep herself out of trouble.
