You picked up your teen’s phone and saw some explicit sexting messages between, say, your son and his new girlfriend. What to do? Teen therapists Lorraine and Richard Platt offer these tips:
Don’t panic. It’s not an emergency. Before you do or say anything about your teenager sexting, make sure you have a game plan. Talk to your partner if you have one to think through what you want to say, and make sure you’re not reactive or fearful when you go to your son.
