There are so many important topics to discuss with our children when they are given a smartphone, maybe one of the most difficult is on the topic of sexting. A study by JAMA Pediatrics released in 2019 revealed at least 1 in 4 teens are receiving sexually explicit texts and emails and at least 1 in 7 are sending sexts. Although most teens are not sexting, they are, however, more likely to receive a sext. Join Mary Beth Uberti, Director of Program Development at Operation Parent, as we discuss why teens sext, legal issues, emotional implications of sexting and conversations to have with your teen about sexting.
