What can you as a parent learn from this? I suggest the following:
1. No matter whether you are a man or woman if you socialize with a minor you can become sexually attracted to them;
2. Parents must on a regular basis monitor and review their children’s phones, their text messages and their social media. If they do furnish a smart phone to their teenager, it is essential they install parental controls to prevent the viewing or exchanging of pornography. Their teenagers should be banned from downloading and using apps like Snapchat or other similar apps which permit minors to send pornography to other students and/or access pornography;
3. Permitting teenagers, both boys and girls, to view pornography or to sext will most likely result in unlawful sexual behavior with potentially devastating lifelong consequences.
