I have a 16 y/o daughter. I will re-emphasize what others have said to educate your daughter about sexting. It can have tremendous negative effects legally and pshcologically for her. That said, I have 2 other pieces of advice which you may already be doing. First, get amy and all passwords and accounts you can on your daughters phone (email, apps, itunes, whatever she has an account for). Second, make sure your daughter turns her phone over to you at a time you and your wife determine appropriate. Do this on every night. You would be amazed at how much action transpires between kids between 1:00-4:00 AM even during school nights. It is part of their culture now, and I do not know how any kid could get a good nights sleep if they have access to a phone. Set up rules now so that she is used to them as she gets older and the peer pressure greatens. These social networking apps are scary nowadays. From this point on it will get more complicated and difficult for her and the family.
Good advice, thank you. Thanks everyone.
Any chance I can give my three girls back, trade them in for three boys instead?
I know what I was doing at 13-14....I was an early bloomer, man I hate to think back about this stuff....
