Parents, read this about sexting
The New York Times features a sexting case from the Olympia area you might remember, and includes information all parents of teens need to know.
Around the country, law enforcement officials and educators are struggling with how to confront minors who â€œsext,â€ an imprecise term that refers to sending sexual photos, videos or texts from one cellphone to another.
But adults face a hard truth. For teenagers, who have ready access to technology and are growing up in a culture that celebrates body flaunting, sexting is laughably easy, unremarkable and even compelling: the primary reason teenagers sext is to look cool and sexy to someone they find attractive.
