You go through a series of options at your disposal with the idea that you don’t want the negative behavior again and maybe a teachable moment of growth.
So, when father, Kevin Jones found out his 10 year-old 5th grader was online pretending to be a teenager he decided to let it be known on social media that she was only 10.
Jones posted a picture on Instagram of Janiya wearing ponytails and barrettes, a pink princess backpack and an airbrushed t-shirt that said “I Am 10 Years Old” in the from and “5th Grader” in the back, plus a caption that said:
Since my beautiful daughter Janiya wants to be grown and lie about her age, saying she is 14, 15, 16 & 18 years old. She claims to be in love and going with a boyfriend which is completely against my rules!!! I uncovered that she has been doing this for quite some time. She also has snuck and obtained social media accounts, also against my rules!!! Here’s the consequence behind her actions. An age defining shirt. Yes people she is 5’9 and 10 years old. #BuddiesBarrettesBallBalls
