Cell Phone Tips
They Help, But Can Also Hurt
They help you have peace of mind when you are traveling and perhaps have car trouble. Business can be conducted at a push of a button. Parents can call their children to check on them or the children can call to get a ride. Cell phone technology is the leading technology today and growing by leaps and bounds.

Tips For Parents
Think Before You Press Send
Think about the consequences of taking, sending, and forwarding a sexual picture of someone underage, even if it's of yourself. You could get kicked off of your sports teams, face family and public humiliation, lose education scholarships and even be faced with heavy fines and prison time for sending nude pictures of a minor, even if the minor is yourself. You will be charged with charges of Child Pornography, go to jail/prison and have to register as a sex offender for LIFE!
Report any nude photos you receive to an adult you trust. Do not delete the message. Instead, get your parents, teachers or counselors involved IMMEDIATELY!
