finding out the wrong stuff the wrong way
08/04/2010 at 03:15 AM

Sorry I'm a newby here but desparate for some advice. My 13yr old daughter keeps a diary and today I broke the golden rule ( I know I know) and read it. How low can a parent go? Is this excusable? BUT what I've found out is she is having her 1st relationship with some boy from school who I don't know and she denies having even a crush on. A little bit of petting and kissing seems to have taken place-nothing tooooooo alarming however in a phone or text conversation this lad asked to see more of her so they've exchanged text pix of their private parts with him then asking if she'd touch herself and send him that pic too.-thankfully she refused this.
Help. Obviously i'm in a real hole here as this is all stuff she's put in diary so I'm not supposed to know but now i do how do I bring this up without destroying all her little trust in me.
In all other departments she is a typical messy, stroppy, self-centred acheiving teen and I'm sure she has no idea of the ramifications of her actions (pix in school yard being the least of mt worries).
anyway any conversation starters greatly appreciated.
