Teens and Sexting

Nov 25, 2014

Tuesday, our guest is the journalist Hanna Rosin. Her latest article for The Atlantic asks what we should be doing about teens and sexting. Now before you cry, “Not my kid!” consider this: surveys show nearly a third of older teens have sent provocative selfies. Rosin says most often the pictures land where they’re intended, but the consequences when they don’t can be devastating. We’ll discuss the legal and social fallout of sexting and what the trend tells us about our kids.
