Sexting, the electronic hickey:

Article here

I won't lie, this article is long. In my opinion it's all common sense. So why is sexting happening? Why are teens going to jail over naked photos on their cell phones? Why aren't more parents aware of their children's texts and media on their phones?

Too many parents want to be their kids friends and not parent them?

Why is sexting happening? Just like the article stated they are repeating what they see all around them and they are trying to be "cool"

why are they going to jail? because like it or not it IS considered distribution of child pornography because of their ages

why aren't more parents aware? they either don't care, or they are too naive to think their kids would do such a thing, or they can't be bothered to be aware of current events to realize there is this HUGE problem going on and circumvent it from happening by not allowing a teen to have a picture phone, web cam etc till they're of age, or they've deluded themselves into thinking they don't need to monitor how their children communicate via phone, social networks etc.. you know because "they should be trusted and all "
