Father catches his 10 year old daughter, Janiya, lying about her age and dating boys on social media networks.
This irate father means business!!
Kevin Jones must have gotten a shock of his life when he found out that his beautiful and oh-so-tall! 10 year old daughter sneak-joined social media accounts. As if that wasn’t enough, his daughter, Janiya, lied about her age on the social media and was dating boys!
When he found out, Kevin Jones made Janiya dress her age… plus more. He made Janiya wear an age defining tee-shirt which says “I am 10 years old” on the front, and “5th Grader” on the back. To complete the look, he put barrettes and balls in her hair, and posted it on Facebook so everyone can know she is just a little girl.
“Since my beautiful daughter Janiya wants to be grown & lie about her age. Saying she is 14,15,16, & 18 years old. She claims to be in love and going out 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 are the consequences for her actions. An age defining tshirt. Yes people she is 5’9 & 10 years old. #BuddiesBarrettesBallBalls”
It is no news that children sneak social media accounts, but this is the first time a parent is openly (and publicly) doing something about it. While Kevin Jones is doing this to let the world (and those she met on the social media networks) know that his daughter is just a little girl, there are parents in this world that would treat the issue as cute or amusing, forgetting or ignoring the dangers involved.
Many people (most especially parents) commended Janiya’s father’s action as fitting.
Kevin Jones’ Facebook post and the photos of his daughter wearing the shirt have since gone viral. His Facebook post alone has gotten over 250,000+ likes and about 80,000 shares since the 21st October.
