I wrote this a couple of weeks ago, then didn't post it: I've learned the real truth about kids/cell phones. My difficult child had been grounded from the computer (reason forgotten) for a week. That means he couldn't get to his email. OMG!!!!!!!!!!! How's he going to talk to his girlfriend???? [Duh...how about the phone?] So I see him with-my cell. What are you doing, difficult child? difficult child: Getting my email. I didn't even know I could get email on my phone. Gray area, I thought. He's not grounded from the phone.... hmmmm.... Long story short, difficult child changed my cell from "ring" to "vibrate." He left the phone on the table. And of course, it vibrates, alerting that an email has come in. Checking his email, there's one with-attachments. I open it. There's several individual photos of boys from +/-14 -15 yrs old, all posed showing off their "abbs." All are difficult child's "friends." None have their shirts on. They think they are hot stuff. roflol [it's funny now -- wasn't at the time] My first thought was, "ACK!, if the police had found this phone, I'd be in jail charged with-pedophilia." No, he's not grounded from my phone; he's forbidden to touch it!!! Why didn't some of you parents with-teens about give me a heads up?! You got your kids a cell to keep yourselves out of the slammer, right?!!! husband want to get difficult child a cell phone. Are there any cells on the market that don't have cameras?
