My sister and law and I were talking about sexting and how common it is getting among teenagers. Both my 16 year old and 14 year olds have phones, and she told me that she is totally fine with her daughters texting (17 twins and 15). Well my kids phones we charging and they weren't home, my sister and I went through their text messages. I was absolutely horrified to find that both of them have been repeatedly sexting. My step-daughter (14) has been sending pictures of herself naked and in totally inappropriate outfits to several boys, and my step-son has been asking his girlfriend and her best friend for naked pictures, which he received. When we found this my sister said to relax and then its all part of being a teenager and discovering yourself. What do you think?

Ummm, take their phones. A couple of years ago when my oldest was in junior high there was some pictures sent around of the cheerleaders fresh out of the shower. Each kid with a phone that had the pictures were suspended from school. The cheerleaders and a few of the guys were on the Dr. Phil show. It is a serious issue and they know that there are serious consequences. When our oldest two were given cell phones we told them that at any time we can take their phones and check them. Randomly I will say phone check and they have to immediately hand it over. I have never had issues with them. I read every in going and out going message. If it is questionable then I will call the phone and have a talk with a parent. They know that having cell phones is a priviledge and not a right.

Some asshole online asked my almost 14 year old daughter to send him pictures. My daughter told him no way and he pestered her about it and she threatened to turn him in for soliciting child pornography. She hasn't heard from him since.
Before I started letting her get on the internet unsupervised I talked to her about dangers and things she might run into and how she could handle them.
My daughter doesn't have her own cell phone. My husband and I both have our own and she borrow's mine when she needs it and for texting. I know she wouldn't get involved with sexting. I'll have to keep an eye on things as she get's older. Almost everytimeÂ that IÂ see a news story online regarding pitfalls that teenagers fall into, I share the story with my daughter and we talk about what mistake was made and how to avoid making them ourselves. The big one on sexting was the girl who commited suicide after naked pictures of her
