Hello-I presume you pay his bill so I wouldn't feel guilty about seeing the sexting or bringing it up with him.
However, you don't have to bring it up by saying that you have seen his texts. Bring up a news story about children and parents who were arrested after sexting was discovered, about kids expelled or suspended from school after sexting, explain in vivid detail the problems with sexting--from the child porn issue to the legal issues to just the embarrassment issue--what if someone breaks up with that person and spreads the picture around and that person gets a bad reputation, something colleges pick up on and give a pass on.
I started having these conversations with my kids as soon as they were old enough to have their own phones and whenever the topic comes up on the radio, on tv, on something I see on the Internet...I bring it up again.View Thread
