Is there any way to limit her internet access ? If she's using her parents facilties to access the internet, one migth install one of the many available programs intended to limit children's access or even general security software, password protected so she can't alter the settings, and simply list those sites ( if you can obtain their URL's) as sites to which the software should refuse to allow access.

Meghan,

The only way is to be there for her. It is a matter of you can take the horse to the water, but you can't make it drink. The more you force her, the more you will loose her.

Talk to her, tell her how much you love her and care for her in the absence of your parents. She is your flesh and blood. Just don't ever give up on her. The fact that she visits these sites...there is not much you can do apart from telling her how negatively these sites are influencing her.

As CS said, try the major universities for help, their Psych departments must be able to assist.

Thinking of you and your sis!!!
