Not so much that the boy had a girlfriend but where were the parents?
Shortly after 10 p.m., Goss went to each of her three sons’ rooms to tuck them in. Tysen’s door was locked, but she was able to open it with her key. At first, she thought her middle son was hiding or playing a trick because he wasn’t in his bed. “I went in and I thought he was being silly,” Goss told The Post. “I ended up finding him in the closet . … I tried to hurry up and lift him up. I was screaming. I told my oldest son to call 911. My littlest one was bawling.” Goss said the paramedics were able to revive Tysen. The boy was hospitalized for three weeks before he died on Tuesday at a Detroit-area hospital. Goss said her son often used Snapchat. The night he died, she said he was texting and talking on Snapchat with the 13-year-old girl, who was using someone else’s account when she told Tysen that his girlfriend had died. No one warned her son that it was all a prank, Goss said.
The girl, whose name was not released, has been charged with malicious use of telecommunication service, punishable by up to six months in juvenile detention; and using a computer to commit a crime, which carries up to a year in punishment. Both are misdemeanor charges.
All I know is if my eleven year old son or daughter came to me and told me they had a boyfriend/girlfriend, I would want to know what was going on. I grew up in an era where you didn't even so much think, much less suggest, you wanted or had a relationship until you were 13 or 14 years old. I was eleven 29 years ago and having a "girlfriend" wasn't even a thought in my mind at that age.

What I want to know is why is an eleven year old boy involved in a relationship to begin with... Where were the parents?
Exactly what I was going to ask. Not so much that the boy had a girlfriend but where were the parents? Why blame the little girl I would have some serious questions for the parents of both children!
Social media is a catastrophe in my eyes. So much bad comes with all of the inter-connectivity.
