Do teenagers have a sex chat
Once again the issue of sexting hits the headlines…
So, what do you do if you find out your teen is sexting? To top it off, new research indicates this problem is happening across prevalent ethnic minority (African American and Hispanic) youth as well.
Let them know that they will be subject to random text searches, that you will view their social networking sites, and that all apps downloaded must first be approved by you, (and any other rule that you want to enforce.) I am aware that not all share my opinion on not allowing teens full privacy.
Time and time again I get comments from readers that teens deserve more privacy, or better yet a teen reads my blog and disagrees with me asking parents to be more involved. The big picture must include uncovering what else is going on to make your teen want to sext.
Many teens still don't use privacy settings, so you can easily access information about them.
If you're not keeping tabs on your teen through randomly searching for him or her - college admission reps and potential employers are! I love the idea of setting up a contract with your teen; he or she will see them many times in their future, so why not introduce them early?
