PdV and Ron, I have been reading your responses to ESP and I think they have been excellent. Computers have opened the world to our living rooms. It is a phenominal means of communication, but there are dangers that cannot be ignored. Being a parent, I understand the mother's concern, yet, bad influences can come from school friends just as quickly, easier actually, than from an e-pal.
ESP, i liked Ron's last paragraph. Some type of reassuring communication from one of your parents to Jessica's may be helpful.
I believe most of us need someone to talk to at times who doesn't know us and we don't know them, but someone who is there and will listen, not judge us, and hopefully offer encouragement.
Hope it all works out for you.
