need some good advice about my little sister - October 29th 2017, 12:55 AM

So, I am 16, my little sister is that wonderful age of 13. She is a wonderful sister, not perfect, but wonderful.

This is what I need advice on. I found some not-so-good photos of my sister on the computer. I also found some not-so-good photos of a boy, I have no clue who he is and I am sure she found him on facebook. He is her age so no worries on that.

Anyway, should I talk with her about this or just let her figure it out for herself? I'll be honest and say I did the same thing at her age, trading and all that, and I basically learned that it wasn't a good idea. Should I let her just be like me and learn, or should I say something? I feel like we talk okay on occasion, and we have had our chats on sex and stuff, but I don't want her pissed off at me.

And no way am I telling my mom! I don't need any advice on that.

I think that even though most kids do this, that it is very dangerous and harmful. Just because the boy in the picture seemjs to be her age doesn't actually mean that is the person she is talking to. There are a lot of older guys out there who use teens pictures to con youngt girls into giving them nudes or whatever. I really think you should talk to your mom about this. I mean you are sixteen years old it isn't your job to parent your sister.

I hope this helped a little bit.
If you ever need to talk I am a PM/VM away.

Your Friend,

We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.

I agree, that it would probably be best to discuss this with your mom. However, if you do not feel that that is something you can do then, at the very least, it would probably be a good idea to make your sister aware of ways she can be safe on the internet. Check over this: http://www.teenhelp.org/safetyzone/ to get some information about how to stay safe on the internet.

Best of luck and I hope the situation ends up working out well.
