Sex / Suicide Sites- Chances are Your Child is on them. Upper & Middle Class Well Educated Families...THIS MEANS YOU!

Dear Community Member- I will keep this short and sweet- Kids are smart and have moved away from Facebook (where grandma is their friend) to unmonitored "teen only" sites like ask.fm - the site connected to 9 teen suicides to date. 


Ask.fm is based out of eastern Europe and ANYONE can join into any conversation and say things like "you're a whore, you're fat and ugly and should kill yourself". Or ask your twelve year old, "are you a virgin?", "Have you ever seen a di*k?", "send me a selfie pic", etc. (these examples are taken from the actual site).  

Other sites like Ask.fm include: keek.com, kik.com, vine.com, reddit.com, snapshat.com, pheed.com, wanelo.com, 4chan.com. 

Sites like these need to be regulated and made available only to 18yo and up. Please sign this petition to voice your concern. The goal is 10,000 signatures so we can send this to state/ national legislator and get something done about this. Pass this on to others, your school, coaches, friends, etc.
