42-Year-Old Mom Arrested for Sexting

What You Need to Know to Keep Your Child Safe

San Francisco, CA—Parents nationwide were shocked to hear the news that 42-year-old mother Christine Hubbs is facing 67 counts of sexual assault for allegedly having sex with two teenage boys.  It is reported that this came to light when the mother of one of the boys found a nude picture of Hubbs on her son’s cell phone.

As an expert on texting,  sexting, textual harassment, and cyber bullying, Shawn Edgington teaches parents how to keep their teens safe from the dangerous side of technology.  While most parents think their own child would never participate in sexting, according to The National Campaign, 33% of teenagers have admitted to sexting.  The shocking reality is that this behavior is more common than most parents realize.  It is important for parents to address this issue with their children and to set boundaries at an appropriate age to avoid problems in the future.

Edgington is an engaging guest who can tell parents how to protect their kids from sexting when she answers:

  • How can parents keep the lines of communication open with their teens?
  • What is an MMS feature and why do parents need to know about this?
  • How can parents raise their child’s awareness of predators?
  • Where can parents find photos already stored on their child’s cell phone?
  • What strange behavior should parents look for?
