Like so many apps available through iTunes App Store or Google Play Store, Amino is just another app to be aware of that your child may be using and communicating with complete strangers on a global scale. I heard of a kid that was chatting with strangers in a group type format, about very dark and dangerous subject matter involving violence and death.

A term that I learned from this conversation was “RP” which stands for Role Play. This means that people imagine and dream up something often very illegal, dangerous or violent which others in the community join in on in a role playing type fashion. In this particular case, the the virtual community was role playing about killing siblings and parents.
