Not RTFA, but how do they define "troubled"?

Oh yeah, headline is a bit alarmist.  But parents bought the snap-bracelet business.  And the drunken satanic orgy business as well.  They will go Grape-nuts over this one too.

In 7th grade all I cared about was D&D. Of course, that was back in 1980, so...

Sounds like they are using "troubled" as a synonym for "horny".

It's a pretty catch-all term. Often derived from the amount of support they get at home and in the community, and is represented through academic and behavioral issues.

And while this pushes more into the 'At-Risk' territory, this article gives some insight into how kids/students/youth are labeled as such: http://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/youthviolence/riskprotectivefac t ors.html

No faces, kids. That way porn aggregators can profit from your 7th grade ass for decades to come.

MTG in the 90s. The only thing I tapped in middle school was mana.

D&D games at that age are filled with drunken orgies and raping information out of orcs, elves, gelatinous cubes, tanar'ri, liches, umber hulks, etc.

Check the methodology though.  The sample they used for the 7th grades were all from phone interviews conducted in the presence of the parents.  That's some fine data collection work there Lou.

No, since I'm touting them as virtues.

I'm an internet engineer and I'm glad I don't work in messaging anymore.  I don't want to see anything like this on accident just because it's going through some server I run.  Yes, we can read your messages, we don't want to but sometimes we have to.

I have a question.  What the fark does a 7th grader need with a cell phone?
 
2014-01-08 09:47:07 AM  
That's the age when kids are noting there is a lot of fun to be had in the adult world. Some more than others.  I recall kids I knew were meeting to hook up and I didn't even know what a "blowjob" was yet. Most that age are still mostly kids though.

I'm 35 and most days, I care more about D&D than I do sex. The whole having two small children thing kind of puts a damper on that whole sex thing.

No.  I'm saying the collection of data was slipshod and that should invalidate any results or conclusions drawn from the data since it is more than likely invalid.

It basically tightens the leash on parental monitoring and control of their whereabouts, since their parents can call them at any time and even get a monthly list of who they're calling from the phone company.

And that's if the parents  aren't really actively snoopy, if they're actually trying to be intrusive they're the owners of the contract, and can legally put whatever GPS tracking, etc they want on the device.

It's not really  for the kids, in my experience, they'll communicate with each other just fine via the fact that they pretty much live together seven hours a day and don't have so many social contacts they couldn't just memorize the numbers and use line phones or e-mail each other from fixed consoles.  It's all about the fact that, before cell phones were common, you really had no way to verify that little Johnny actually  was studying at the library or whatever line he fed you rather than out with his friends (or, to be more charitable to parents' motives, that he hadn't been run over by a car or something in the eight hours since you last saw him).  More control and monitoring makes parents more comfortable.

// This is why pagers, which are basically equivalent for the end-user in terms of actual communication, never really became a thing with minors... they can't actually force the person on the other end to answer (or get in trouble for not answering) in the way a cell can, so parents weren't going to buy them for their snowflakes.

I had to have an incredibly awkward conversation with my boss's daughter about what she was doing with her iphone way back when they first came out. She was, I think, 13 or 14 at the time.

I think they should make phones that don't have cameras. I can accept that kids might want/need a cell phone but the camera is just an invitation for awful things.

Yes, some phones have a parental control feature now, but it's a lot easier, especially for less technical people, to just not get the camera part in the first place.

If we'd have had 'em, we'd have done it too. With better spelling.
 
2014-01-08 11:21:06 AM  

Mr. Shabooboo: / It's still probably 4 of 5... :P


Very probably.  When I was that age we used Polaroid cameras to take pictures of our junk.  Even if someone stole the camera you didn't have to worry about bunches of people seeing what you had done.

Those youngsters today, I tell you.

My most recent girlfriend was ten years younger than me (she was 24, I was 34). Different generation, you see.

Anyway, I was surprised when she had absolutely no problem with texting me nude pics of herself. I never could have gotten a chick I dated to do something like that for me before.

It's like, as more generations pass, the fewer farks these kids give.

/Yes, I enjoyed dating a chick so young.
//Yes, the sex was awesome.
///No, the relationship didn't work out. Go figure!

Youngsters are often not aware of how evil nudity is.

So does this mean the NSA has the largest collection of child porn on the planet?

You're right. The NSA needs to be investigated.

Of course, the problem is...who investigates the NSA?

The study found that the adolescents who reported sexting were several times more likely to engage in other sexual behaviors, like making out or having a "friend with benefits."

Well at least it is working out for them. This may encourage others to try it now.

Thank you for the post, I'd forgotten about those.  The only problem I have with it is the gnome should have told them about the map and been recruited as a henchman because they're all secretly size queens.
