Some children appear to be taking risqué pictures of themselves and hashtagging (#) them with keywords like #naked or #hottie. They then upload them to sites where anyone, including strangers, could view them. Those viewers can then like them or comment on them.

Your children may not be doing this on purpose, and there is a way to make them aware of the practice.


Uh sure, they don't know what naked means unless they've been exposed to it

How is this a Ric Romero story? Kansas only got cell phones six weeks ago.

Sure, they watch porn on a shiatty cell screen, but they don't get to watch it on the big screen until they go out and get a job and get their own money to buy their own!

Attention public : your children are goddamned morons with less sense than that possessed by a drunk rabid possum standing on the side of the interstate. Technology now allows them to multiply their amazing dumberfarkery at an exponential rate.

We had a discussion going about kids not needing smartphones until they were older. One couple disagreed, saying that it was Ok to give a 12-year-old one.

One of our group grabbed said 12-year-old's phone from him and dug through his chats and pictures to show his parents how wrong they were.

This is why you hang on to that old nokia 3310 then? Here kid, you can call home, talk to your friends, even send SMS messages. But no graphics for you!

The best part of that pic is the fact that the woman has the camera turned around, and isn't using the front camera on her iPhone.

Keep up the stereotypes, Fox.

Sounds pretty accurate to me.
I can think of no earthly reason why a child should have a cellphone anyway??
I was at least twenty-five before I did.

Twenty five seems a bit late. My parents got me one at 13 because I was travelling a lot with sports and gymnastics. Being able to let them know when I was arriving from a tournament or when practice was over was really convenient. Once I started driving they wanted the peace of mind that I could call from the side of the road in case of emergencies or whatever.

They never actually told me not to take naked pictures of myself and post them on websites, but I guess they assumed they didn't raise an idiot.

Well obviously they didn't. When I thirteen no one had a cell phone.

It was 14 for both of mine. Same reason. Pay as you go phone only. Kept the insanity to a minimum.

Husband and I thought about the pay as you go for the kids....then we figured out we had more control with contract phones.

I hate dumb asses that go, "Why does a teen need a phone?" Obviously they do not live on the same planet as I do. I cannot tell you when the last time I saw a pay phone and school office workers have told my kids use your own phone. Additionally, do you know how farking scared a kid gets when a teacher tells them to pull out their cell phone and call their parent?

Also, why the fark not talk to your kids about this shiat? We did. The last time we looked they haven't done it and they laugh at the kids that do. You can't protect your kids by not talking about it.

The selection they used when talking about risque images - mmmmmm, that is some hot gay porn.

Wow, some school employees obviously haven't become any smarter than when I was in school.
