Pew and MTV/AP studies explore sexting and teens

How many teens are taking a nude or sexual image, sending it, posting it or keeping a copy of it? 20%? 34%? more?
The answer is...too many!
I talk to an average of 10,000 students a month. This is an imortant issue to and about them. They want to know what to do if asked for a pic, if someone sends them one unolicited and how to handle sextbullying when it gets going.
In a remarkable resource (I was honored to be a part of) MTV and other experts designed to give teens, their friends and family and other stakeholders answers to the questions they have. From how to indentify digital abuse to helping them stand up to their peers or getting help when they need it - it's all there.
