    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Sit her down, and explain to her how it makes her look to other people. That guys manipulate and use girls that are young and naive, but it really does not make them like her more. From experience I can tell you that whenever my parents took my phone and computer away it just made me even more mad and made me want to act out more. The girls that I graduated with still to this day can never live down the pictures that they sent out...just approach it a different way then just taking things away.

    have explained to her and had other young men tell that it makes her look bad. i even tryed to explain to her that it is breaking the law, and that she could go to jail. her answer to this i dont care what other people think. and she said she will not have to go to jail her dad will.

    How about explaining that things put on the Internet never disappear. Imagine she was being interviewed for the dream job of her life and her future boss somehow got hold of those photos ...

    Is she aware that the people receiving the photos are breaking the law?

    So she says she doesn't care what other peole think and that she believes she is immune from the law ... Have you asked her why exactly she is doing it?

    It's incredibly stupid - after she break up with that guy, all country will see her naked. Share with her some articles about Internet safety like this one:

    And if you're worried instead of banning her from Internet try to monitor her delicately. Good article about:
