‘Dublin Confessions’ Twitter Account Targets Dublin Scioto Students
Melissa Howard does not use twitter but says she has begun to after another parent introduced her to a specific account targeting Dublin students.
"I received a text from a friend who asked if I was familiar with the Dublin Confessions twitter account,” said Melissa Howard.
Howard says she found the account and read hurtful, nasty posts about several students at Dublin Scioto High School.
"There were things that were written about my friends’ children, people I didn't know, and things that are totally inappropriate," Howard said.
There was also something written about her daughter.
The Dublin mother contacted Scioto Dublin High School's principal and the school’s resource officer.
"In addition to that, I have emailed many parents to let them know what is going on, and we are also engaging lawyers to look at it from a civil perspective as well,” the mother said.
She says parents have thanked her for her efforts.
Howard says she will continue to bring awareness to this site because she says this can be a form of bullying.
"As a parent I kind of feel ashamed that I didn't know this was going on,” Howard said. “But now that I do know, I want other parents to know that they can intervene and have those kinds of conversations with their kids on what's appropriate and what's not."
