'Sexting' becomes the next big worry for parents

Giving older children cell phones is a way for parents to be able to communicate with them at any moment, particularly in an emergency.

But this device of communication has now become a menace in the hands of some young people with something called "sexting".

A friend told me the story last week of her son's girlfriend who decided to send a naked picture of herself over her cell phone to his. So both sets of parents had to get together for a discussion.

I really don't how to curb this kind of use, because parents don't have time to daily go through every picture on their child's cell phone.

Or perhaps they will now have to make time.
