Still image from B Careful When U Txt: The Dangers Of Texting And Sexting

A nasty rumor spreads through school with lightning speed. A bully's taunt reaches its target instantly. A young teen is caught "sexting"-sending sexually explicit images or words over a cell phone. Today, kids no longer have to wait to get to a desktop computer to see and hear all the latest gossip. It's right in their hands, on their PDAs, giving them the ability to take and send pictures and videos and instantly access social-networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. Using dramatic scenarios as well as first-person experiences, the positive and negative sides of this new technology are explored. A primer on the do's and don'ts of text messaging, including the laws on privacy and child pornography, is provided. Also covered are setting and maintaining personal boundaries, dealing with unforeseen consequences, and underscoring the need to "think before you click."
