Sexting protection

Posted:

The American Academy of Pediatrics has come out with some tips to help parents protect their kids as they enter the world of texting and social networking.

Experts say it's crucial for moms and dads to join social networking sites, like Facebook and MySpace, and become online "friends" with their kids so they can better monitor them.

They also encourage parents to talk with their older children about "sexting" -- which refers to text messages with pictures of children and teens who are naked or engaged in sex acts.
