I think she is getting scared that my niece won't want to come and see her since she is getting older and she is her only grandchild. Still not a reason to leave her unsupervised online. Kids need to know about technology but being a child is much more important.
My 14 year old neice at age 13 was finially recognized by her rich daddy who insisted she move in. Which I think is stupid because he spent the first part of her life threatoning to sue my sister should she even open her mouth it was his.
ANYWAY she now gets what ever she wants. This includes a facebook account and a new IPhone and what ever her little heart wants. I don't even know where to begin with her. Already showing to much cleavage, complaining she's getting fat when she's a size four, or bragging with her brother how her Ipad Mini is easier to sneak into class then his Ipad. Does her father scold either of them? Nope. Does her mother scold her? Not anymore she's scared of daddy. I've tried talking to my neice but her grammar and spelling are so horrible I can't understand what she is saying. Look how I write, it's hard to say there is worse then me. Fourteen and she still thinks school is spelled skool. We need to take away spell check/autocorrect and bring back spelling lessons. She's lucky auntie lives over 2000 miles away I swear.
This is the same kid I used to lock in the closet well into kindergarten just by closing the door and saying it's locked. The closet did lock, but only from the inside not the outside.
