Sexting!

May 15, 2009 at 5:38 am (news)

Kids sending nude photos to each other via cell phone is on the rise. But wasn’t that to be expected as more and more kids are getting cell phones for their birthdays and christmas’? Duh. Kids are going to do what kids are going to do but to label them as sex offenders even if both parties are consenting to the nudeish photos is outrageous. I agree I wouldn’t want my kid to send nude photos to each other but there is a better way to battle that than labeling them. Most cell phone companies sell cell phones that are bottom of the line, meaning they can’t take pictures (or receive them). I happen to have one of those phones. And guess what? It works great as a cell phone should. It can send and receive voice calls. And an occasional text message. Parents need to be thinking about that when they buy their kids $400 cell phones. Mine was $16.00.
