Social media is filled with predators and these days, parents are utilizing extreme measures to ensure their kids understand it’s dangers.
Some parents have even sought to publicly humiliate their child by ‘teaching them a lesson’ online.
[FLASHBACK: Mom’s Quest to Publicly Shame Daughter Backfires… ]
Valerie Sparks posted a 5-minute video online last Sunday of her confrontation with her 13 year old daughter. When the Colorado mother discovered that her teen had been pretending to be 19 on Facebook and posing for pictures in lacy lingerie, she shot the video to publicly shame the girl for her actions.
In the 5+ minute video, Sparks makes the girls admit that she doesn’t own any lacy underwear, has a 10pm bedtime and still watches children’s shows.
I’m not quite sure how or why the video would necessarily stop the teen from doing it all again, but I guess anything is worth a try.

VIDEO: Denver Mom Shames Daughter on Facebook
The recording above clocks it at 5 minutes, 40 seconds and shows Val Starks berating her daughter and forcing her to admit that she is a just a kid who still watches the Disney Channel, doesn’t wear makeup and owns no sexy underwear.
Starks posted the video on her Facebook page Sunday, and it instantly went viral. By Wednesday night, it has racked up more than 10.6million views and 313,000 shares.
‘You’re 13,’ Starks, a cosmetology student from Denver, tells her daughter in the video. ‘So why does your Facebook page say that your 19? Are you 19?’
‘No,’ the girl replies, standing with her arms folded across her chest in the front yard of her mother’s home.
‘And are you a freak?’ Starks inquires of her daughter, to which she quietly replies, ‘No.’
The Denver, Colorado mother says that it’s the fourth time her daughter has done it and she’s hoping her viral video will end the youngster’s dangerous social media practices.
