Here's a novel idea...don't get your kid a cell phone with camera abilities. Most of these 16 year old's aren't buying their own phones...mommy and daddy are buying it for them. There's no need to have all the extras on the phone. I know my daughter isn't getting one with all the bells and whistles.

This is yet another example of how teens are not able to handle the many responsibilities that come with the use of modern technology. If they do not understand the consequences for the choices they make why on earth are parents allowing these items. Cel phones, internet and teen driving. Parents are in the clouds.

What if its someone whom is not a teenager but of age doing the same thing? Is that also against the law when the person they send it to they do not know an they do not have a clue if the person is underage?

Are you asking if you unknowingly get a picture of somone underage? I did see on the "today show" that if you forward a picture you get and it is of an underage person you can be charged.

Kids that do stupid stuff like sexting should take note that it could come back to haunt them later in life. Whether you think it's wrong or not you should know how stupid it is.
