Hi Im trying to find a way to talk to my 14 yr. old daughter

Customer Question

Hi I'm trying to find a way to talk to my 14 yr. old daughter about questions she's been answering on ask.fm. She's been getting asked questions that are personal and I feel that she shares too much info. and she's also been getting very mean comments. I want to scream and yell at her but I know it's not going to get me anywhere. How should I approach her on this situation?

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Seeking expert testimony is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Dear parent?

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

I believe that I can help.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

You are right to be concerned about your daughter's involvement with www.ask.fm

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

There have been many reports of cyber bullying on this website, and the consequence suicide of several children who were driven to it by very mean-spirited users.

Hi Elliott, I can only open your response on my phone. I cant open it from my computer. I also cant get onto any of the websites you suggested???

Expert:  Elliott, LPCC, NCC replied 9 months ago.
Dear XXXXX,

Try again. I will also report this to JA.

The websites are all legitimate and working. I checked all three BEFORE I gave them to you, so you will be able to get on to them.

Check that your computer is actually able to get on line.

If you still have trouble, let me know. I shall report this now.

Warm regards,

Elliott

I just received a computer generated signal that you are trying to reach me but nothing has come through.

I did notify JA about your difficulties but evidently nothing has changed. I suggest that you contact them directly. I would certainly like to continue to help you.

Warm regards,

Elliott
