Do you warn your kids?

Do you warn them about the consequences of taking/receiving sexual explicit pictures? It seems most teens have phones with cameras and they want to share everything. I don't think kids are educated enough on what can happen. A girl can send a topless picture to her boyfriend and now he's in possession of child porn and can be labeled a sex offender. I'm not worried about mine teens not knowing, I worked in a prison with "sex offenders". Most were, but there were 18 yr olds in for having topless pictures of their girlfriends. I make sure they know the consequences.

I haven't yet but I will. My kids are a bit young but my son is learning some parts are meant to be private.

 I TOTALLY will.

I think with this generation.. with even my generation.. our parents didn't think of that as something they even had to talk about. There were a few girls in my school who texted picture of themselves to their boyfriends.. and our whole school was able to watch what unfolded. So.. of course that is a topic I will touch on and stress with my daughter when she is at that age.

They did a school assembly at my kid's high school one year because it was a problem. My kid used to show me pics her friends had sent her and I would make her delete them.

I'm 39 so we didn't have this issue when I was in school. I guess the closest thing would be passing around a polaroid, lol.
