Sexting primer for parents: In case some basics would help

Sexting primer for parents: In case some basics would help

“A lot of sexting numbers have been tossed around the airwaves after four separate national studies. I’d go with the latest (last December) from the Pew Internet & American Life Project: 4% of US 12-to-17-year-olds have sent “sexts,” 15% have received one from someone they know (see this for more). Why Pew? Because they focused on the age range and issue of greatest concern due to child-pornography laws in this country: 12-to-17-year-olds and photos – specifically, sexually suggestive nude or semi-nude photos, not sex-related text messages, which other studies included.”
