Today's Letter is N- In the News
I ran across some disturbing information and thought I would have to wait until it was time for my letter T post, for texting or S, for sexting, but I believe I can squeeze it in under the letter N- for Nude Photos.
Not the way to get your ex back. Jilted teen learns the hard way.
So you're girlfriend breaks up with you and breaks your heart. You're pining after her and she's not taking your calls. What should you do?
(a) Nothing- Get over it, you're only 17.
(b) Follow her around like a sick puppy professing your love
(c) Stalk her
(d) Remember the naked photo that you took of her and concoct a brilliant plan to get her back. Text said nude photo of your 15 your old ex-girlfriend to her mom and threaten to publish the naked photo on the internet if mom refuses to let her talk to you.
The answer is not letter D- Not if you don't want to go to jail.
This one is far worse. A man discovered a naked photo of his girlfriend's daughter and he sent the photo to forty of the girl's friends, from her contact list. His defense: "To teach her a lesson."
The culprit will have lots of time to learn his own lesson. He is currently in custody and facing several child pornography charges. Never text nude photos.
This nude photo story is enough to make you cringe: Teens using nude photos to blackmail other teens. This one is not any better, Teens Use Nude Photos to Blackmail Girls.
I am a mother of teen girls and the reason I initially joined Facebook was to monitor their online activity. Well, teens being as techno savvy as they are, ditched Facebook for Instagram. I read a news article about an iPhone app that teens are using, primarily for sexting and sharing nude photos. It is called Snapchat.
How many of you parents out there are concerned about the amount of texting our kids do? What about their social media presence? Facebook? Instagram? Do you monitor your teens internet use and if so what method or methods to you use?
