Are you worried about teen 'sexting'?

According to a new survey from the Pew Center, one out of every seven American teens say they have been the recipient of 'sexting', where someone sends them a nude or nearly nude photo via text. While more than 15 percent of teens between the age of 12 and 17 acknowledge receiving the messages, only four percent have admitted to sending them out.

Does the growing 'sexting' trend worry you?
