    Given the choices being made here by both mother and daughter, I *really* doubt the girl's father is available.

    This woman needs to be the girl's MOTHER, not her "friend".
    Some counseling for both of them, and a few days in jail for the boyfriend is what's needed.

    To do this to a 13 old girl is appalling, even if the photographer was he mother! As the old irish expression says: "Do the crime, do the time". hopefully, the girl's father is avaiable and willing and able to care for her. My wife and I are former Guardians Ad Litems.

    Yes, after taking a long careful look at the bio-mom taking this girl away from her and placing her in a decent home where she can be taught morality is the only possible solution.

    What do you say about stuff like this? Negative or not, reality happens.

    Do you give prison time to these two adults? If so, how much? Taking the girl away from her Mom seems fitting at first glance. But is that the best thing?

    What do we do with all these bad parents? Where do all the kids go? The state? Options are bad for unfortunate kids/teens like this girl.

    People be better to each other is advice that will go unheard. If (and it's a big if) people know what's right in most circumstances, just do it people.

    Everybody can't go to prison and reform based programs are so bogged down with all kinds of political and ideological differences. What do we do but embrace better choices.

    This is sickening. I truly hope that not only the woman (she doesn't deserve the appelation "mother") and the adult boyfriend pay the full price for what they did to that poor girl.

    I would fight tooth and nail to not let this happen. I can't believe this Mother may have actually taken the pictures. Where are some people's values these days?
