Dayum…Note to black parents: Monitor your children’s pages on Myspace, Bebo, etc. I saw this girls parents on the Today Show yesterday…and they did monitor her at home. However, we all know your children can access the web at school, at a friends home, the library, and on their cell phones. I think this is a dayum shame…just unheard of.
MISSOURI — 13-year-old Megan Meier of Dardenne Prairie hanged herself after a person she chatted with on MySpace abruptly ended their friendship and sent her mean messages.
But it turns out the 16-year-old boy Megan thought she was speaking with, was, in fact, the mother of a former friend who lived just down the street.
After the negative emails, Megan fell into a depression and killed herself.
Megan’s parents are speaking out to try and protect other vulnerable children from cyber-bullies . No charges have been filed against the former friend’s mother, but Megan’s parents hold her responsible for their daughter’s death.
