A mother has stumbled upon requests for indecent photos on her 10-year-old daughter’s phone.
According to the woman, she was shocked when she saw the request for nude photos on her daughter’s phone. The request was made by a classmate of her daughter who conversed with her through Instagram’s Direct Message.
The little girl was reported to have contacted her mum for support after the boy demanded the explicit photos from her as he asked her to get “more sexual”.
The girl while recounting the incident was reported to have taken a call from the boy.
The mother who took the call said: “He was calling her a ‘s**g’ and put the phone down, he didn’t realise it was me.”
She added: “Some of the stuff he was saying wasn’t anything you’d expect a 10-year-old to know. I knew about him but thought it was general chit-chat. She would say he was her boyfriend and stuff like that but never thought it was anything more.”
When the young boy demanded for a return favour after he sent her sexually explicit photos, she wrote: “I can’t I’m in bed I show tomorrow.”
He then replied: “No now otherwise I will dump you just turn your phone light on.”
The little girl then succumbed and sent the indecent image.
At some point in the conversation, the girl replied; “When we get older then yes but since we’re only kids I’m not quite sure.”
The girl’s mother said: “She didn’t really know much better. It’s like she just wanted to please and not offend him or be nasty. She’s embarrassed and worried her friends might have found out.”
