Hold Parents Accoutable

PARENTS!!!  PARENTING IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY!!!  Our children ARE OUR RESPONSIBILITY — not the school’s, not the police — OURS!!!!

As a mother of a preteen boy, articles and video clips on sexting ran shivers up my spine! Call me dinosaur, techno-illiterate, totally out-of-the-loop — I’m one of the few on this planet without a cell phone.  Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean my 10-year-old son won’t have access to one (like all preteens, he has friends).

“Teens lack the life experiences to understand the long-term effects of their actions” — maybe so (I’ve made some REALLY STUPID CHOICES in my younger days so I’m certainly not in a position to cast judgment); but if one naked picture online can label a teenager as a “slut” and a convicted sex offender, there’s NO SECOND CHANCE TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION (can’t take those pictures back once they’re out there.  Internet photos spread like wildfire)!
