Teen chat about sex
Websites like Myspace, facebook and Twitter all cater for teens and don’t cost any money to join so young people and adults can meet.
Free friendship building sites rarely screen users.
When chatting online it is a brand new world, thanks to the internet.
Online social and dating sites continue to grow at a rapid rate over the last few years and there is an increased risk a teen will fall victim to an online predator.
Texting has become so common among teenagers, it's almost rare to see one not typing out a text-message on a cell phone, but moms and dads may have more reason for concern than just the cell phone bill. As a mother or father, it's hard to keep up with lingo.
If you find a text on your teen's cell that says, "I want a burrito"...normally, that wouldn't be cause for alarm.
But what if we told you that is text code for ecstasy?
And a message that says, "Has anyone seen Tina" …that's code for meth. "I want a quart of Ben and Jerry's" actually refers to the drug Ice.
