Reputation Changer Exhorts Parents to Talk Frankly About Sexting

New York, New York (PRWEB) May 13, 2013

Sexting is still a fairly recent phenomenon, but the reluctance and embarrassment that parents often feel when it comes time to talk about sex with their children is nothing new; according to Reputation Changer, though, there has never been a more critical time for parents to talk to their kids openly and honestly about sexting and other kinds of sexually-provocative exchanges, via phone and computer. As recently as March of this year, a rape case from Steubenville, Ohio won national headlines, with an incident of sexting lying at the heart of the case. Now, with summer approachingand more and more kids finding themselves out of school, bored, and unsupervisedReputation Changer says it is urgent for parents to make the sexting conversation a priority.

Here is our standpoint regarding sexting, comments Reputation Changer president and CEO Michael Zammuto. You are your childs parent offline, so you need to be the parent online, as well, involving yourselves in the decisions your kids are making on their phones and on the Internet. No parent wants to find that his or her child is engaging in sexual activity over the Web, or sending out potentially compromising photosand parental involvement can go a long way toward keeping kids on the straight-and-narrow.

Zammuto says the consequences of sexting can prove diresomething he says is exemplified by the Steubenville case. Its not just that sexting is so closely intertwined with cyber-bullying, though, or even that there have been cases of sexting leading to rape, he remarks. Something else that should concern parents is the fact that, on the Internet, everything is forever. If your kids are posting compromising photos or embarrassing exchangeseven privatelythat information is out there, on the Internet, indefinitely. There is no way to reel it back in, and no telling when it could resurface in your childs future.

According to Reputation Changer, there are several tips parents should follow as they think about talking to their kids about sexting. The first and most important step, Zammuto says, is simply being willing to have the conversation. This is not a topic on which parents can afford to be timid, or to take a hands-off approach, he states. It is imperative to decide to talk to your kids, and then to follow through with a candid conversation about sex and technology.

Zammuto says another way for parents to watch out for their kids is to gain first-hand technological experience. If you know that your child spends hours every day on Facebook, then you cannot risk being the parent who knows nothing about Facebook, Zammuto says. Get a profile and become friends with your kids.

Reputation Changer also recommends that parents consider the message kids are getting from recent celebrity scandals and to ask their kids directly about their technology use. Ask the question point blank: What did you do on the Internet today? Ask who theyve been texting with. Ask these questions every day, not to be nosy, but to keep the lines of communication open, offers Zammuto. You can also make this a two-way conversation, sharing with your kids about your own life on Facebook and other social media sites.

It is not just kids who parents should be talking to, but other parents, as well. If you have friends whose kids are a similar age, ask them about their childrens social media, computer, and cell phone use, Zammuto advises. Ask how theyve talked to their kids about sexting, toowhat works, what doesnt.

Zammuto finishes by saying that candor and transparency are always the best policies. Talking with kids about something as serious as sexting is a challenge, no doubt, but being honest and open with them about sex, about bullying, about gossip, and about the importance of maintaining a clean online reputation is something parents should prioritize, the Reputation Changer president concludes.

With Summer Heat Reaching Record Temperatures, Mancuso-Nowak Insurance Agency Urges Parents to Talk to Their Kids about Heat Safety

Shrewsbury, MA (PRWEB) July 25, 2013

Extreme heat and its impact on individuals is certainly felt by everyone especially children. Whether its outside on the playground or inside of the family car, young children are at high risk when it comes to the heat. According to a June 25, 2013 article in the Orlando Sentinel, childrens bodies heat up three to five times faster than adults bodies do. This year, officials worry, is on target to be one of the worst yet when it comes to heatstroke-related deaths in children.

As of June, there have already been three deaths in the U.S. as a result of children being left in hot cars. Last year, 32 children in total died. Although many states have laws against leaving a child alone in an unattended car, it often only takes a few minutes and some parents may not have thought twice. With record breaking temperatures this summer already, the local insurance agents at Mancuso-Nowak Insurance Agency urge parents to educate their kids about the heat, symptoms of heat-related illness, and how important it is never to go into a car without a parent.

Start by talking to kids about the warning signs of heat-related illness:
