I had 3 videos circulating my friends computers by the time I was 17, and I ended up REALLY messed up lol, so I would think that kids shouldn't do these types of things. However, I would highly doubt that these videos are the reason I am so messed up, so a smarter person would probably think like this:
I don't know how serious of an opinion I could have about this, but I have a vague one nonetheless. I think that the biggest part of the problem is that we involve ourselves at all in these situations as if there is something we can do about them. Trust me, I was there, we can NOT stop kids from wanting to show their ****s, ****s and *****s. It isn't their fault that the upload feature on an iphone 4 is so easy now.
Aside from an initial cautionary message when you give your kid a phone, adults should not be involved in child "sexting" at all. I feel like this type of thing is completely innocent, unavoidable, and only becomes a bad thing once an adult sees the material. (WHICH THEY ALL ARE APPARENTLY LOOKING FOR)
PS. I lost my virginity at age 13, and didn't find out exactly what sex was until I was 15. I would have LOVED to have had a bit of a friggin' study period when I was that age instead of going the dangerous road most do.
