Default Re: Hide spyware

Sorry to say but no matter what. Installing software, trying to protect her. Nothing will work. Cause there will always be ways around it. She will go to toher places, take her laptop, or whatever to do what she wants.

We all did it. I did it when i was younger myself. I remember those days spent in the court house.

But sadly the only real knowledge is experience. That is the only way. I know it is tough. Send her over here and have her listen to some of our stories. Maybe that will help. but ultimately there is nothing that can be done. Give her all the knowledge she needs to be able to protect herself. In the end she will thank you. Even if she doesnt act like it now.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

i agree with Mak & Dave. at this point you can only control so much. as stated, the best you can do is talk with her. that way when she does make mistakes, as everyone does, and learns that what you told her is the way to go. she will appreciate your advice for the future.

i saw some promo for some show...intervention thing, not sure what network...

but the daughter talked about things, how she stumbled...ended up in some situation where she had to do porn or something...or something involved in servicing men...

I saw a little bit of where she freaked when she saw her family doing this intervention...

sadly sometimes people have to make these mistakes or non mistakes themselves right? some people love it...and some don't.

She could just do what many american people do (and most likely in many other countries) do a whole lot of wrong while you're young...then change later...whether that comes from genuine change, guilt, or the facade of some new found religion...who knows

Because she is a legal adult you may also be in violation of some laws in tampering with her personal computer. All you should really be doing is making sure she is well informed, beyond that she is of legal age and will learn from her mistakes.
