My grown niece has a 9 year old daughter. She is in a custody battle and I think she may be nuts. She convinced her 9 year old to post a "craigslist" ad in the missed connections section. The post says the 9 year old saw a young boy on a skateboard. She proceeds to describe herself and her clothing. She asks to connect with the boy she saw there. I think my niece has lost her mind. Am I being an old pearl clutcher or is this borderline child endangerment.

Did you tell your sibling (her parent) about this? That's where you need to take this, not here.

The parent is my niece. She lives on the other side of the country. Her parents also were made aware. I am hoping they will get involved. I will jump in if necessary. I keep hoping she was hacked and this is a hoax but I really don't think that is the case.

More stupid than dangerous.
I mean, since when do skateboarding little boys read Craigslist "missed connection" ads?

She's likely sexually abusing your niece.

What's wrong with it? Maybe the kid saw her too and by a twist of fate checks the same section for a personal? Kind of cute really! Is it so wrong to believe in star crossed love?

Star-crossed love doesn't mean what you think it means, R5.

Craigslist is not a safe place for a nine year old, a nineteen year old, or even a ninety year old. Haven't people been murdered and robbed off of craigslist? Your niece is definitely crazy. And how old is this boy she saw skateboarding?

[quote]now this family is going to be all kinds of upset with each other over a little puppy love thing. Poor girl!
R8, I think they'll be more upset about all the sexual solicitations and close up cell phone pictures of grown mens' penises that probably began flooding the kid's email inbox 30 seconds after they posted a "harmless" "missed connections" ad.

I meant to say I hope r6 is kidding.
There really are some evil people on this site.

If the family has a brain in any of their collective heads the only thing they'll be upset over is that he didn't tell them at the start. That kid's Mom is an idiot (if ANY of this is true including the supposed ratting out).

This story has near-future Teen Mom blasting from it.
What kinds of gifts go you give for a baby shower for an 11-year old?

r14, people can be murdered walking down the street. Considering the amount of transaction Craigslist facilitates, statistically, it's not particularly unsafe.

OP here...I contacted her immediate family immediately. She sent the email to several family members. Her grandparents are involved. I don't care if they find out about my post. Plus R6, you are so full of shit. OOOH, I am so scared of you. Fool!

R6 you're an idiot, and like most idiots on the DL, even brag about their idiocy.
I often think the DL is the place to come if you want to read what the opposite of ethical is.

I hope your niece doesn't find this thread, OP. She may use trolldar to cross-reference it with the one where you talk about sleeping with her father.

This is one of the more disturbing threads that I've read here on DL. I'm not sure whether OP or R6 or little Jason is scarier.

I don't understand the point of the CL post. Was it the truth and the daughter really wanted to meet the boy? Or was it some kind of role-playing for the mom? In any case, I doubt the replies went directly to the 9-year-old.
|by Anonymous||reply 32||05/25/2013|
It sounds like the mom is weird herself and trying either to whore the daughter out or use her as bait to lure older pervs and go vigilante on them. Unfortunately probably the former. I'd also bet good money the mother is abusing prescription drugs.
