Teen’s disappearance raises questions about online safety

So a 14-year-old girl in Kentucky pretended to be 18 online. Then she fell into a relationship with a 17-year-old boy in Connecticut. Some other man (boy’s dad or older brother maybe?) drove boy from CT to KY to get girl. Girl hops in car and heads north.

Glad she is safe, but this could have been prevented if the girl’s parents were using PC Pandora. Social network monitoring does no good if you don’t have a program that lets you know about your child’s secondary/fake accounts. PC Pandora monitoring software will let you know if your child is pretending to be someone else online and planning to run away…
