SEXTING

If parents didn't have enough to worry about before, there is a new worry and it's called SEXTING. It's serious, dangerous, has consequences and can ruin their children's future.

Sexting (a combination of sex and texting) is the act of sending sexually explicit messages or photos electronically, primarily between cell phones. It shows poor judgment when using digital technology by sending an image, video or text message of an explicit (adult) or risque nature to another individual.

While many may be shocked by it, "sexting" - sending nude pictures and making sexual advances via text message - is not unusual, especially for tweens and teens.

In January 2009, a survey of 1200 teenagers reported that one in five had sent explicit photos of themselves

In 2007, 32 Victoria teenagers were prosecuted as a result of sexting activity.Child pornography charges were brought against six teenagers in Greensburg, Pennsylvania in January 2009 after three girls sent sexually explicit photographs to three male classmates

In Fort Wayne, Indiana a teenage boy was indicted on felony obscenity charges for allegedly sending a photo of his private parts to several female classmates. Another boy was charged with child pornography in a similar case.

Police investigated an incident at Margaretta High School in Castalia, Ohio in which a 17-year-old area girl allegedly sent nude pictures of herself to her former boyfriend, and the pictures started circulating around the high school after the two got into a fight. The 17-year-old girl was charged with being an "unruly child" based on her juvenile status.

Two southwest Ohio teenagers were charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a first-degree misdemeanor, for sending or possessing nude photos on their cell phones of two 15-year-old classmates.

It is imperative for parents to talk to their kids about sexting and its consequences. Communication is key!
