Now available: Tips to prevent 'sexting'

Hey, readers. Will you help us spread the word and make "sexting" a short-lived trend (by minimizing the number of children being prosecuted!)? We just posted our Tips to Prevent Sexting at They're based on solid research - conversations with police, prosecutors, and legal scholars at local, state, and federal levels). If we missed or muddied anything, feedback most welcome! In any case, we think that, once they have the facts, teens themselves will help minimize this problem.

Good suggestions! One thing I would add is that with many mobile devices, the camera can be disabled, and this is a step some parents might want to take. You can see how to do this on an Iphone for example here

Good point, David. I believe all the carriers allow customers to turn off the camera feature. Thanks for posting,
