Some parents of middle school students said they don’t allow their children on Facebook because they fear something like this may happen to them.

“They don’t have Facebook, I don’t allow them to have that because it is so beyond control you can’t watch everything that they do, but what we do is monitor exactly what they are looking at,” said Gene Romero, a parent.

Romero said he also talks to his daughters regularly to make sure they understand what could happen if they talk to someone they don’t know.

“‘How do you know them, do they go to your school? They start thinking about these things and they start thinking this could be an individual or individuals that are trying to contact them and meet them somewhere to do something they shouldn’t,” he said.
