My boss lady found a picture of a naked marion female 9th grader in her sons email and didn't do a thing about it. I'd defintly would want to know if that was my daughter doing that- she wouldn't have a cell phone or access to a computer anymore. course, she is only 3 now. who knows what they will be doing when she get to the teen years

That's why my teenage son doesn't have picture mail. Even though I trust him, he can't control what other people send him. Believe me, there are PLENTY of teenagers in this county that are participating in this. A friend of mine just happened to be sitting at the table where her son's phone was laying when a message came in. She checked it - because that's what decent parents do - it was a female student in the 8th grade. Nude. She turned the phone over to the police, which is exactly what she should have done. Parents, really, why would a teenager need picture mail? You can't tell me one reason why a teenager needs to have it. It's just a tool the devil can use to tempt them.

Who is paying for that cell phone your child is using you or them? Is there a block of any kind for a cell phone to keep nude pictures from being sent? If not there should be.

Call me nuts, but I have yet to figure out just why in the name of St. Peter kids really even need cell phones in the first place. I (and most everyone I know) survived childhood, jr. high, high school and college without a cell phone.

I have a 15 year old and he has a phone. I have online access to see what he sends and receives. As long as he lives under my roof his privacy is mine. He has no privacy. It is a rule and as long as he gives me no reason to search his room then he is good. He knows that his phone is always open for me to check stuff. I trust him but other kids dont have parents with the same morals. I think that as a parent that we have to put some trust in the Lord to protect them but we are not stupid....We were all teen sonce...Think about the things you tried to get away with. As far as nude pictures. I as a parent would want to know because down the road it is gonna hurt someone. What if it was your childs picture?

I completely agree with you. Unfortunately, it seems to me that we are in the minority. A dad that I work with told me that it was awful that I read my son's messages. He said he would never do that to his daughter unless she gave him a reason to think there was something going on and he was worried. My son knows that I read his messages and doesn't mind...because he doesn't say anything that he would be ashamed for me to see. Teenagers are not always capable of making good decisions, especially if they think no one is watching. Let them know that their parents are keeping tabs on what they do and its amazing how much better their decision making becomes. As far as them needing cell phones, with things going on at school the way they do these days, I wouldn't feel my child was safe without a way to contact me in an emergency, but that doesn't mean they need picture mail!! I think a parent who allows their child access to picture mail is ignorant.

If it was a minor sending pictures to another minor I would not involve the police but rather the minor's parents. If an adult, male or female, is sending pictures to my minor I would involve the police. I see no need to involve the police in a minor to minor setting until after the sender's parents have been informed and then pictures continue to be sent. You may agree or disagree but that is how I would handle it.

If the kids don't see nudity on their phone, they'll see it in person, especially kids today with their laissez faire attitude toward sex.
***If it's an adult sending naked pics to a minor, that's different.

I have first hand knowledge of a young man (15) in Raleigh, who was charged with child porn when he forwarded a pix his girlfriend had sent of herself, nude from waist up. I am unsure of the statute he was charged under.

Uhm, no. As long as our child is under our roof and a minor he does NOT have the right to send or receive whatever he wants to. So happy to see other parents on here who give a darn. I had one little 13 year old girl send our son a very racy text. Guess what I did? I deleted her off his phone and called the girl and told her to never send my son a text like that again. And Happened in Marion, I would have called the mother of that girl.

at some point in time during their life they will do what they wanna do requardless if u like it or not so being strict on them and hovering over them all the time and being all in their buisness that will def not fly for long but i do see a big difference between two 14 and 15 and 16 year old sending pictures to each other rather than a 16 and a 20+ year old that def is not right and i agree u should def punish them for that but if they are around the same age and sending pictures give him some space let him do his thing. . .all im sayin is adventually they are gonna try different stuff out and ur not gonna always be there to tell them yes or no so let them learn while they are young or else their will b probs later on in life

He can try what he wants all he wants AFTER he leaves our house and is a legal adult. Before that, ain't gonna happen.

Who is Mario Carson and what did he do?

Oh and to "get a life" you're ridiculous. Who cares if it's girls or guys? We don't raise our son to discriminate against gays or anyone else, get it?

For your info Get a Brain, I'm college educated (unlike 80% or so in this county..just sayin'.) I'm not a redneck at all. The "rednecks" are the ones who discriminate and let their children run wild and do as they please. Just go to juvenile court some time. You'll see the type of parents I'm talking about. As for twisting your words, I did no such thing. You showed your ignorance in your message. I didn't have to twist anything. I hope you don't have kids.
