In a recent survey, one in five teens admitted to sending nude or semi-nude photos or videos and more than half said it was common for explicit photos and text messages to be passed around among friends. View teens' real stories: a girl recounts how an explicit picture of her became widely circulated in her school; a boy expresses regret at posting pictures of a girlfriend after they had broken up. A law enforcement official drives home the legal consequences of sexting. Using a peer-to-peer approach, teens talk about the importance of resisting pressures to engage in sexting. They emphasize that you can't assume that anything you send or post is going to remain private; that you can't change your mind once something is out there in cyberspace; and that what you may think is a harmless joke may be interpreted very differently by someone else. Includes a Bonus feature for Parents and Teachers: Elizabeth Schroeder, an internationally recognized trainer, consultant and author in sexuality education, provides information that every parent and teacher needs to know about why teens sext and what consequences they face.
Includes Resource Guide.
