I don't blame her for what she did, since she's 11 and pre-teens and teens do incredibly stupid shit for God-knows-why.
But what I want to know is... WHY THE FUCK WEREN'T HER PARENTS PAYING ATTENTION!? Why did they LET HER do that stuff? I mean, it's not hard to block a website or limit computer time or check internet history once in a while. Eeegads.
Ah thanks, I was curious about that video actually.
I might go against the grain for a second here, but I actually feel pretty bad for her.
I mean, come on, she's eleven. Even just posting her videos up for the world to see is going to be horribly humiliating later in life. I think back to when I was that age and the worst thing that could haunt me is that maybe I was very rude as a child, or maybe my parents could have found a dirty drawing or maybe a friend could have found and read a diary I could have kept. But these days, a girl can go on the internet and, well, be a stupid kid, and it's not this little humiliating memory, it's now a huge train wreck in front of the entire fucking world. I'm pretty sure when I was eleven, the entire fucking world wasn't going to stumble upon my diary and laugh about it. Or send me death threats for kicks.
And her future! future employers will see this, possible friends, possible lovers... unlike that one time we accidentally call the teacher "mom", she won't be able to just pretend it never happened. I personally think that's very sad and I don't really see the interview as "dragging it on" as much as I see it as a lesson to other parents to pay attention to their kids before they, too, humiliate themselves in front of the world.
I don't know, for an eleven year old, she seems pretty typical. Not exactly deserving of this kind of reaction...
I don't know how old you are but trust me, she is NOT typical. I still remember my 11 year old days, but even if I didn't, I still go down to the middle school sometimes to help my old art teacher run art club and those 11 year olds are nothing like this one. Thoguh I agree, it's going to suck for her later in life and it's not something a kid should have to deal with, even one as ridiculously stupid like this one.
well when you give someone an internet persona, they will act bolder than they would if they were surrounded by real people. I'm pretty sure if any of us were safe in our little rooms knowing we could say or do anything we wanted online with relative impunity, we would all be this 11 year old.
