You may have cautioned your teens about sending naked pics, but have you talked about not ASKING for nudes? Here's a great piece on the topic of sexting, and how we should alter the way we frame this conversation with teens. "In talking about sexting with both daughters and sons, parents might say, “We don’t want you to share nude photos of yourself — even with someone you really care about and trust — because doing so puts you in a terrible position. The relationship might change, or that person could simply lose track of their phone. It’s just not worth the risk.” To that we should add, “And it’s not O.K. to request naked pictures because then you are putting someone else in a terrible position. Don’t do that either.”
