Talking to parents about dating Recorded webcam
But despite education efforts and cautionary tales, it's still, unfortunately, pretty common.
There have been some high profile cases of sexting.
Just thought I would voice that I am completely proud of the authors choice. a parent choosing to 'hide' and not educate their child on different sexualities is therefore stealing the childs right to choose their own sexuality and identity.

Though some experts tell parents not to "freak out," sexting is associated with sexual risks, such as using drugs and alcohol, having more sexual partners, and not using contraception. As far too many teens have found out, the recipient of these messages is in possession of a highly compromising image or message that can be easily posted on a social networking site or sent to others via email or text.
In a technology world where anything can be copied, sent, posted, and seen by huge audiences, there’s no such thing as being able to control information.
