Sexting (or "sex texting") is the sending or receiving of sexually explicit or sexually suggestive images, messages, or video via a cellphone or the Internet.
Examples of sexting include sending: Many girls sext as a joke, as a way of getting attention, or because of "pressure from guys." Guys sometimes blame "pressure from friends." But for some, it's almost become normal behavior, a way of flirting, being seen as cool, or becoming popular.
But if what gets shared is a little too personal, your teen's reputation could be harmed.
Even if the image, video, or text was only meant for one person, once it's been sent or posted, it's out of your teen's control.
It could be seen by lots of people, and it could be impossible to erase from the Internet, even after your teen thinks it has been deleted.
And don't overlook the potential for legal consequences.

If a compromising image of your teen goes public or gets sent to others, your teen could be at risk of humiliation, embarrassment, and public ridicule.
