Need another reason to monitor your child’s media habits?
A recent report indicates that more than a quarter of teens aged 14–19 have sent nude pictures of themselves electronically, either through the Internet or by text message. These teens were more than twice as likely to have sex than teens who had not sent nude pictures.
The question of which comes first, sexting or sex, is irrelevant. Monitor your children’s activities, and keep the lines of communication open.
How has technology helped or hurt your relationship with children at home or in the classroom?
