Teens who sexted struggled more with emotional competence, and they had less emotional awareness than their peers, the study indicated. Teens who sexted also were more likely to report intentions to engage in sexual activity and they were more likely to feel that their peers, family and the media approved of this behavior.
"Parents probably don't think about sexual behavior as much in 12 or 13 year olds," said Dr. Hina Talib, an attending physician Nike More Uptempo White Black in the division of adolescent medicine at The Children's Hospital at Montefiore in New York City. "This study highlights that middle school aged teens can be vulnerable, and that doctors and parents should be screening for these behaviors and talking about media safety. This group is at risk by the way they make decisions. They think they're invincible."
By Serena GordonMONDAY, Jan. 6, 2014 (HealthDay News) More than 20 percent of at risk seventh graders have "sexted" and those middle schoolers were much more likely to also have engaged in some type of sexual behavior, a new study finds.
The findings were published online Jan. 6 in the journal Pediatrics.
In the study, 410 seventh graders from five urban public middle schools in Rhode Island completed surveys between 2009 and 2012. All of the children had been identified by school counselors, nurses or administrators as having behavioral or emotional difficulties.

Sexting is when someone sends sexually explicit messages and/or pictures by cellphone. Seventeen percent of the children surveyed said they had sent a sexually explicit message during the past six months. Five percent of the seventh graders admitted to sending sexual photos via cellphone.
"Sexting is almost normalized by their environment. Parents can denormalize it and teach their kids that it's not normal, it's not safe and it has ramifications and consequences that they probably haven't considered. A discussion about sexting can be a way to start talking about how healthy relationships should be," Talib said.
Seventeen percent of the teens said they had sent sexual text messages in the past six months, while 5 percent said they had sent sexual photos by cellphone in the previous six months. Nine percent of the teens said they had sent Nike Air More Uptempo 2016

Many of today's teens and preteens have access to the Internet and mobile devices, and this is changing the way kids communicate. Seventy one percent of 12 to 13 year olds had access to a cellphone, 68 percent had their own cellphone and 23 percent had a smartphone, according to the study.
