Sexting is one of top issues affecting kids today

Since its first convention in 1897, National PTA has adopted hundreds of resolutions and positions on a wide variety of education, health and safety issues affecting children.  The latest issues were voted on from dozens of current issues as the most critical affecting kids now. Want to guess what they are?  Reporting head injuries at school is one. Sexting and its legal consequences is the other.

For those who don’t know, sexting is when people send graphic images  via cell phones. With the laws in place regarding the transmission of naughty pictures via the web, many teens have found themselves charged as sex offenders. Besides the legal ramifications, what moral consequences are there when minors sext?  If your teen has a cell phone, why? Are there any other issues  you’d like to see take center stage?
