      I wished they could find her alive…
      kids are so vulnerable they dont realize the internet is a predators playground..
      let’s pray she wasnt killed…

      I only saw a little blurb about this on the news last night and then switched stations. Yet somehow I remembered to say a prayer for her and her family. I haven’t listened to the news today –honestly, sometimes I just have to turn off the bad news and opinionated cable hosts/guests for awhile. Anyway, praying for a good outcome and will check back for news.

      The Internet has opened the world up to more information, it’s broadened our horizons, given us a chance to make friends all over the world, but can also be a very dangerous place. From identify theft to cyber bulllying (not just for kids) and pedophiles. I think the rules of raising children need to be updated and they should be required reading. Now that I mention it :-) , Stephanie Good’s book “Exposed” should be on the nightstand of every parent with children under 18.

      I want to know how a relative happened to know where to find clothes or other items belonging to this girl? Often a close family member. Hope I’m way off.

      Why didn’t the uncle who dropped her off at the store make sure the other party was there? Was this the same relative who found the items belonging to the girl? Has anyone heard who it was that did!

      If they are running together, maybe they went somewhere to change clothes?? Could have been another house owned by the family…which would blow my “uncle” theory out.

      Kids think they’re so old so much younger these days.

      ya know brenda
      I thought the same.. they need to investigate the family… they dropped her off just like that… its kinda suspicious..could be innocent but ya never know…
      yes kids dont like to be told what to do or who to do it with they think they know it all… thats why they say teens should leave home while you still know it all…
      but still yet in this case someone knows something… and if were wrong brenda and it is an internet predator… than I feel horrible because she may not be alive…theres so much of this happening … predators seek vulnerable kids they lie about age and make themselves to be not what they truly arent..
      I pray she is found alive… it breaks my heart to think otherwise….

      #4- LIL—–Couldn’t agree more with every word in your post.

      Thank you also for the tip on Stephanie Good’s Book, EXPOSED. Time to check out Amazon and order it or stop by B&N…..good to know and thank you again for the recommendation.

      I always say…KNOWLEDGE IS POWER—and as a parent of a 12 and 14 y.o…SNOOPING IS MY PRIVILEDGE and I will do it and protect my teens ALWAYS. (Even if they don’t know I am, trust me- their safety is my #1 concern, not being nosey or intrusive, per se.) Thank God for Parental Controls on the internet and my husband who is a Software Engineer to set defaults/blocks, etc. and install sfw so WE SEE AND KNOW ALL. It is one of our best sources of information for tracking their movements when they are on line…..Call it what you want, we call it INFORMED and CAUTIOUS. A parent learns so much by internet activity, IM chats, My Space pages, etc. and also picking up the cell phones that YOU PAY FOR and checking that everything is legit!

      Thank you, and AMEN.

      The texting!!! You find out so much by all the texting. Please (people like that idiot YOYO) don’t get all over my case with name calling….

      We check on all of the above mentioned things intermittently…when we feel something may be up. We are supportive, loving parents who trust our children- but realize they are that—adolecents/teenagers who are going to experience, make some bad judgement calls and make mistakes like most of us also did as teens.

      Only pontificated here so some bloggers wouldn’t tear me apart and hit me up with that “respect their privacy” BS. Guess what—when they are mature enough and we have no more doubts as to their judgement calls and decision making process —then of course, it ceases immediately. Up until that time- I will throw on the “Columbo” jacket when I/we see fit and that is just the way it is, Folks.

      I’d rather NOT end up being one of those parents who says “Oh, My God—We had NO IDEA!!” after something terrible happens and I could never live with myself knowing if I had been more in the loop or involved…it could have been prevented.

      First, is always—open lines of communication and honesty with them—mixed with tons of love and support–but you know what? Even with that—sometimes you have to take the extra step.

      Apologies for my rambling—I am just brain dumping some things that have worked for us in our lifestyle in what are very challenging times raising teens/young adults to be! Better safe than sorry.

      Bless this precious child, so young. I pray she is found unharmed. And now they are investigating her uncle who is a sex offender and has been linked to a sex ring? This world is just sooooo full of sick people. It’s just devastating. So many need our prayers…I pray they find this girl…
