A scenario about sext chat
A concerned parent contacted me after I posted my last sexting blog because he found out that his teen daughter was sexting.
If an adult can't escape the humiliation and embarrassment of sexting, how does it affect the life of a teen?
At least if you find something first, you can help your teen clean up that online reputation before it affects an admission decision or job offer. Odds are they are under your contract with the phone provider to have their phone, so why not make a sub-contract with that contract?
Establish the rules and consequences for using electronic devices.
In some states the charges on a minor soliciting child pornography are the same as for adults, not to mention it could also prevent teens from receivingcollege scholarships and job offers.
That's not to mention the embarrassment of having pictures of your nude body floating around the Internet. Set up parental controls on your teen’s electronic devices.
Maybe you're thinking, "not my teen...” consider this: research tells us that one in four teens are sending these messages and approximately 48% are on the receiving end.
