Text messages. Snap Chat. KIK. Videos. Vines. Today’s smartphones are loaded with seemingly billions of ways and trillions of apps allowing us chat with others, including boyfriends, girlfriends, and significant others, twenty-four/seven.

Not surprisingly, some people, including teens, use their smartphones and other devices to send sexually suggestive and explicit photos and videos. This is known as sexting.

In the last few years, sexting has become a hot topic. Everyone is talking about it. Yes, Everyone. Your Mom. Your Grandma. Your first-grade teacher. No one, however, can seem to agree on it  especially when it comes to teens sexting. That’s why we want to hear from you. Take the quick three question survey to share your thoughts on sexting.

Voice Your Opinion:

After dating for a month, Alex asks Chloe to send him a pic. Chloe sends Alex a sexually suggestive selfie and days later, finds out it has spread throughout school. Who is at fault?

  Did you know you may be in a relationship right now and not even realize it?!

After all, you don’t have to be dating someone to be in a relationship.

While boyfriends and girlfriends are probably what teens usually associate with the word, there are many other types of relationships out there: parents, siblings, friends and teachers are just a few!

All relationships have their ups and downs, but if a relationship has more downs than ups, or you find yourself dealing with problems like divorce, sexting or cyberbullying, it can feel pretty overwhelming.

SafeTeens has guides for understanding many common teen relationship problems, tips for handling difficult situations, and resources to get more help.

It’s also a good idea to check out our Mind & Body section.

Why? Because having a good relationship with yourself is the cornerstone to having good relationships with other people!
