So there was an "incident" at school. I'm not going to share the details because they aren't really important. Suffice to say that Danielle was stick-poking her peers and it didn't work out so well for her. Fortunately, nobody was hurt, but all the kids involved were called into the office.
As part of this, we discovered that Danielle had set up yet another fake social media account. This is now the third one we've caught her with, even though she was told after the first and second that she's not allowed to participate in these sites for any reason.
I am sure that to my kid I'm sort sort of meanie, and maybe even a few parents think I'm a little too strict. The problem is, my kid doesn't make good choices with respect to the social media sites. The first two accounts she created, she lied about her age. On this one, she was truthful, but she did some things that exposed her personal information, and she started getting dating profiles from adult men.
One was over the age of 40.
How did Danielle get access to a computer to set up this account? An adult, who should have known better, thought it would be "okay" for Danielle to get online. Needless to say, the adult has been told that Danielle is to have no computer access under any circumstances, and we've changed the password on the offending account.
When we asked Danielle why she signed up for the matchmaking service, she told us that she really didn't know what she was doing. Apparently, when she's online, she will click on any random link or button that pops up, not knowing or caring if it's something she should be doing.
"I just like clicking buttons!" she said brightly.
Danielle has no business playing on the Internet.
