Remember when your parents used to tell you not to talk to strangers? Kids today accept friend requests from them and tell the personal
information. They have a great number of "friends", most of whom they've never met, and just post things for the world to see without caring what
could be done with that information. Kids need supervision, that's what parents are for.
Crazy story! That just goes to show, parents have a big role in this day and age to be more careful and watchful of your young girls. Less they end
up at some 22 year mans house, when she was only 12! geezzz.
Kids NEED and must have supervision! agree 100%. I need a damn license to catch a fish from a boat. Yet anyone can have a kid at will.. And people
wonder why things get so far out of hand.
Yeah if they would have found her dead, it would have been all Face books fault. And or would be another spin to their total incompetence as parents
to a 12 year old girl!
Social media is a tool. That is like saying, its because we have cars that the stranger was able to abduct children. Tools are used by predators and
bullies. Parents have a high order in this day and age to keep your kids safe.
Oh yes I do remember those days.. Also there use to be blue stars in some folks windows, where if you where being talked to by a stranger, you could
always go to the house with the blue star.
This was back in the early 80's when I was 7 or 8.
Such a different time between then and now.. I feel old.. lol
Yeah its shocking how that do not talk to strangers has totally gone out the window in this century. Honestly it really has. Just add these people
as "friends". Now they are no longer strangers they think.. Scary, and its hard for me to wrap my head around, as I am clearly out of touch with how
things work anymore..
I just say with all confidence.. Parents role and blame is being underplayed here. All this finger pointing. When we should be looking at Todds
Parents for allowing this young girl a webcam, and access with no moderation.
Who the hell gives a little girl a webcam anyway??? REALLY?
Any parent who thinks its okay for a young girl to have a webcam, needs their heads fixed, and are not fit to be a "good" parent. IMO

Just to add.. If you allow your young girl a webcam to talk to family members that is one thing.. But take it away and put it up when you are not
there to see what is going on.. I am serious, little girls and webcams have no place in any good home. Any parent who allows a girl under the age of
16 to be alone to her own devices with a webcam is a fool, bad parent, who is out of touch with reality.
