My sister came over yesterday and wanted to use the internet for a science research project. I helped her with some places to look, and I left her at that. She's a good kid, 12, and gets very good grades *A's & B's* dispite her dislexia. Mom doesn't have internet, so since i live a few blocks away, she comes here. I have no problem as long as she calls first. She then also asked permission to check her email. I said ok, as long as she doesn't download anything. So I go into the history to look for a site I was on yesterday, but could not remember the address. I see this site called www.myscene.com and my curiosity got the best of me. I clicked it JUST to make sure she wasn't into anything not age appropriate. Turns out this is a site where teens meet, chat, and whatever. It looks innocent enough, just from browsing the main parts. But in order to look up anyone you have to be a member. So, I signed up for a free membership and looked up my sister's name. I found her but what I found on her self-described profile made me a bit nervous. She is 12, will be 13 this Nov. She listed herself as 16. The people she has on her profile listed as 'friends' go all the way up to 17. This is kinda creepy. These people are listed to be from our area-walk or bike distance-, and I hate to think that my sister is meeting up with these guys. She hangs out at friends houses a lot, but she has always been like that. She's a big social butterfly. But the fact that she lists herself as 16, and talks to guys that age, makes me think I should tell my mom. BUT...I know how it was to be that age. You wanted to hang out with all the kids that were older because you wanted to be treated that way. And maybe she just chats with these people, considering she's only in middle school, where she would not see these people on a regular basis. It could be she just wants to be that age for a while, but doesn't do anything about it otherwise. The only other thing that bothers me is what she wrote in her 'blurbs'. This is verbatim, copied & pasted from site: She's 12 and writes this kind of stuff?? I want to tell my mom, but I know my mom will get super mad before talking with my sister about it. Maybe I should talk to my sister about this? I don't want to run to mom, and have my sister think I was snooping, which I wasn't since it's my computer. But I feel like she would hate me. I know if I were her, I would have a hard time trusting someone who did the same thing to me. Sorry this is so long, but I really need guidance on this. I haven't told my husband what I found yet, but I will eventually.
