Hannah Masters, the creator of the website www.abeanstalk.com was looking through her email when she discovered a Real Time Notification in her inbox. When she viewed the email she saw that her 15-year-old son and his best friend were involved in a heated argument over a new girlfriend her son’s best friend had recently had.

Hannah approached her son about this and he explained to her that the argument had spawned from her son telling his best friend he thought his friends’ so called girlfriend was “fake” because the two had never met, instead they had exchanged sexually explicit messages with each other.
