Dinwiddie County, Va. – A Dinwidde County mother and father were so shocked by what they found on their daughter’s cell phone they called the sheriff’s department.

The 13-year-old girl’s parents discovered she was sending nude pictures of herself and receiving them from other teens on her phone and tablet.

Officials said the teen’s parents found out about the situation when another one of their children heard voices in her bedroom at about 4 a.m.

Parents took the teen’s electronics and said they were quite shocked when they searched through them.

The 13-year-old girl’s mother said she decided to call the sheriff’s department when she saw and older teen, a boy who was 17 or 18, had requested to have sexual relations with their daughter.

The parents said they involved deputies because they wanted to protect their daughter even though they knew she too could face criminal charges, according to WTVR.

    wow I am so sorry for the parents to have to find their daughter doing such things….. But seriously think about this for a second if you are trying to protect your daughter thats fine but punish her and find the guy and talk with him and his parents… dont invole the police unless you are trying to ruin her life it clearly states that they know she could face charges do they think its going to be a slap on the wrist and a small time in juvie no its going to be child pornography… that will ruin her life… how in the world is keeping your child from being able to do anything in their adult life protecting them?

    Funk dat.

    A 17 or 18 year old trying to hook up with my 13 year old?
    I think not… The call to the police was actually for the BENEFIT of the other kid.

    Sounds like a great call the parents made. The minor will have small legal repercussions but will know forever that her parents will help her with acceptable boundaries. More parents should have this level of confidence in the middle of what must have saddened them greatly.

    A bit of an over-reaction? If they used something like SelfieCop it would have STOPPED her in the first place. Sure, they kinda hate her for it, but perhaps they’d be saving her from herself? Of course, kids are so goddamn inventive, they always find a way round. Maybe a bit of “Big Brother” is the only way on this?

    How about parents start parenting and remove the ability for kids to get into these situations. IE: as a parent, it is your responsibility to protect your child from harm…remove the access. No child under 18 needs to have any electronic device connected to the internet or data plan 24-hours a day. Block it…take the time to see what your kids are doing, monitor their behavior either through software applications or through your cell phone providers options for the phone…many have a “chaperone” feature…you can read their texts, block numbers, you can see what they are doing, you can setup specified timelines for data access. If you don’t want to go through all that “trouble” – take the devices away at certain times of the day, and lock them up…seriously! I partially blame the parents here…their lack of parenting has helped to put their child into this situation. It’s the equivalent of allowing your 14 year old to hangout at the playground after dark, and then wonder why they are doing drugs and getting into trouble.
