Preteen Boys

Sexting – Keeping Children Safe

Section III

(xii) Sexting

“Sexting”, the term that refers to preteens and teens sharing nude photos of themselves via cell phones, emails or on the Web, is illegal and could land the perpetrator in serious trouble with the law. This could include jail time and could carry the stigma of being a child molester well into adulthood. The practice can also have serious mental effects on young people so preteens, teens and adults must think seriously and consider the possible consequences before they push the send button on whatever device they are using. Taking, sending and receiving nude and/or semi nude pictures of a child is against the law. Whether the intension is innocent or not and even if the perpetrator is a minor the law is not grey; it is black. and white so far as current statutes are concerned. Sexting is considered to be child pornography and is one of the most dangerous communication medium on the web today. The admonition to preteens and teens seem to be going on deaf ears, perhaps because of peer pressure or the need to be popular. Parents are particularly challenged in this specific arena since one misstep on the part of their precious child could put him/her in jail with the added stigma of being branded a child molester even though the perpetrator may be a child. Certain terms such as doing jail time and child molester may seem repetitious. This is intentional and is meant to impress on the reader the seriousness of actions pertaining to Sexting.

Look at the following cases and consider if you would like to be caught up in this dilemma:

  • Three teenage girls in a town in Pennsylvania who sent nude photos of themselves via cell phones to three male classmates have all been charged with participating in child pornography. The girls were charged with manufacturing and disseminating child pornography and the boys were charged with possessing it.
  • In Wisconsin, a 17 year old boy was charged with child pornography after posting nude pictures of his 16 year old girlfriend on the internet.

The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy recently published a study suggesting one in five teens had sent or posted images of themselves in various stages of undress. Another disturbing factor is that 15% of those involved in Sexting have sent nude photos of themselves to people they only met on the Internet. The craze is not relegated to the United States alone. According to Reuters in London, “A growing number of British teenagers are swapping sexually explicit images of themselves on mobile phones leaving them open to bullying and victimization by their peers…”

This phenomenon is so wide spread that teens may be caught up in its web unintentionally. The long range effects on perpetrators and victims, beside the current laws and possible consequences are far reaching and cannot possible be analyzed and evaluated by the immature minds of our preteens and teens. I recently warned my grandson that he must separate himself immediately from anyone involved in Sexting no matter how enticing looking at pictures of a naked girl or boy may be.

Consider the following case and think critically before you push the send button on whatever devise you are using.

  • A teen age girl sent nude pictures of herself to her boyfriend with whom she was very much “in love”. A few months later they broke up. The boyfriend was angry over the break up and to get back at his former girlfriend, sent the nude pictures all over the Internet. He is currently facing a considerable time in prison for distributing child pornography in addition to being branded a child molester until age 43. We can only imagine the embarrassment and long term effects this will have on the hapless teenage girl whose nude pictures can be archived and disseminated “ad infinitum” (indefinitely).

Sexting is always a bad idea and must be discarded as soon as it comes to mind or as soon as someone makes the suggestion.

This article is not intended as a source of legal advice but only as suggestions, tips and ideas on keeping our children safe in this world in which we live:

Sexting is Illegal: Do not take or send nude or sexually suggestive photos of yourself or anyone else. If you do, you could be charged with producing or distributing child pornography. If you keep them on your phone or computer you could be charged with possession. If they go to someone in another state, it’s a federal felony.

Non-legal consequences: Consider the emotional damage that can come from having intimate photos of yourself go to a friend who can become an ex-friend and send it to everyone you know.

Any Medium: Sexting can be done on any media-sharing device or technology – including email and the Web. Teens have been convicted for child porn distribution for emailing sexually explicit photos to each other.

Reasons for Sexting: In some cases, children are responding to pressure in a form of cyber bullying or pressure from a boyfriend or girlfriend (they break up, and sometimes those photos get sent around out of revenge). Sometimes it’s impulsive behavior, flirting, or even blackmail. It’s always a bad idea.

Parents: Talk with your children about Sexting in a relaxed setting. Ask them what they know about it. Express how you feel in a conversational, non-confrontational way. A two-way dialog can go a long way toward helping your children understand how to minimize legal, social and reputation risks.

Tips for Parents:

  • If your children have sent any nude pictures of themselves, make sure they stop immediately. Explain that they’re at risk of being charged with producing and distributing child pornography. If they have received nude photos, ask if they have sent them to anyone else Try to contain the damage and tell them to delete the images from their phones and/or computers. Also tell them to transmit the message to the friends to whom they have sent the images.
  • Continue to engage them in conversation. Stay calm and be supportive. Learn as much as you can and try to determine the origins of the behavior such as if it were impulsive behavior, teen flirting or some form of harassment.
  • Consider talking with other teens and parents involved, based on what you’ve learned.
  • Some experts advise that you report the photo to your local police, but consider that, while intending to protect your child, you could incriminate another – and possibly your own child. It is usually good to talk to children and their parents first. If malice or criminal intent is involved, you may want to consult a lawyer, the police, or other experts on the law in your jurisdiction, but be aware of the possibility that child-pornography charges could be filed against anyone involved.

Teens:

  • If a Sexting photo arrives on your phone, first, do not send it to anyone else (that could be considered distribution of child pornography). Second: Talk to a parent or trusted adult. Tell them the full story so they know how to support you. And do not become alarmed if that adult decides to talk with the parents of others involved – that could be the best way to keep all of you from getting into serious trouble.
  • If the picture is from a friend or someone you know, then someone needs to talk to that friend so he or she knows Sexting is against the law. You’re actually doing the friend a big favor because of the serious trouble that can happen if the police get involved.
  • If the photos keep coming, you and a parent might have to speak with your friend’s parents, school authorities or the police.

These tips and suggestions are not exhaustive and parents should use common sense in dealing with these issues. Seek legal advice if you think your child is culpable and could be charged with being involved in child pornography.

Oneida - Preteen Weaponry


Oneida – Preteen Weaponry


$13.68


After a dalliance with applying economical song structures to their trademark organ pulsations on recent efforts–THE WEDDING and HAPPY NEW YEAR–PRETEEN WEAPONRY marks a return to roots for Brooklyn's Oneida: roots that lie somewhere between certain defined genres–Noise, Kraut, Dub, Psych, Drone, Stoner Metal, and Folk all pop up here–and some other zone entirely. The first of a trilogy entitled THANK YOUR PARENTS, the album contains three epic tracks that–although demarcated with breaks–run continuously into each other. Less a set of songs than a series of movements beautifully framed by Barry London's fluid mix, it has a shifting, organic quality that will keep even the most attention-challenged listener engaged."Part 1" finds frenetic Kid Millions' avant-jazz drum fills giving way to a growling Hawkwind-like riff that evolves into a meditative folk guitar and wurlitzer tandem before a gaping tape distortion swallows everything whole. "Part 2" features eruptions of dub-noise and a hypnotic bass groove that foreground the album's lone vocal. "Part 3" has an uplifting Kraut drive that eventually dissipates into oscillating Moog leads and the kind of blurping organ lines that Fat Bobby has long made his calling card. Nine albums and over 10 years in, Oneida remain peerless in turning deeply psychedelic experimentalism into accessible, killer rock & roll.

Preteen Zenith - Rubble Guts & BB Eye


Preteen Zenith – Rubble Guts & BB Eye


$11


Personnel: Tim DeLaughter (vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards, drums, percussion); Philip E Karnats (guitar, keyboards, drums, percussion, background vocals); Julie Doyle (background vocals).Recording information: Elmwod Recording, Oak Cliff; Philip E. Karnats Basement, Chicago, IL; Rainer Judd's Apartment, New York, NY; Triplex, Dallas; Walshtown Cabin, Memphis, TN.Photographer: Tim DeLaughter.Rubble Guts & BB Eye, the debut album from Preteen Zenith, opens with a gently garbled, warped, and possibly sped-up-sounding peaceful folk song called "Breathe." A little after the two-minute mark, loud instrumentation comes in to fill out the otherwise muted, barely there beginnings of the song with stereo-panned drums and large-chorus vocals crumbling shortly into discordant flutes and orchestra pit noises. The contrast between the distant, faded intro and dynamic explosion of jubilation is drastic and announces the record's arrival. From that point on, Rubble Guts & BB Eye is a series of full-force, technicolor pop blasts and a non-stop debate of dynamics between overwhelmingly huge sounds and hyper-detailed quiet ones. It's no surprise that the mind behind Preteen Zenith is Tim DeLaughter of Polyphonic Spree and Tripping Daisy, aided primarily by Phillip Karnats, also a one-time member of Tripping Daisy as well as Secret Machines. The same cracked positivity and penchant for enormous and communal sounds that defined the best moments of the Polyphonic Spree are present throughout the album, especially when the mantra-esque large vocal arrangements on songs like "Relief" or "Maker" kick in. While the Spree could sometimes look so deeply inward they forgot to just rock a little and have some non-existential fun, DeLaughter tempers his dewy-eyed wonderment here with some wonderfully carefree rocking out. The combination of thoughtful lyrics, complex melodies, and intricate electronic touches on songs like "Peddling," or the Erykah Badu cameo in "Damage Control," are reminiscent of the most successful Granddaddy moments.

Yellow Tail Studio; Studio-T; XP Music Studios, L.A.Directors: Young-Jun Tak; Kyle Chang-Hwan Jeong.Photographer: Tae Woo Kim.Publishers: Min-Kyong Kim; Hae-Young Lee.Soon after forming in 2007, the nine-member girl pop band Girls' Generation became one of the most popular K-pop groups in Korea, releasing chart-topping singles and a hugely successful debut album. After their 2010 follow-up, Oh!, they expanded their reach to Japan, becoming quite popular there as well. By the time of 2011's The Boys, the group had set its sights on the American market. The album is teeming with singalong hooks, uptempo dance tracks, the occasional empowerment ballad, and strong vocals from all nine members, with a straight pop radio feel and quite a few tracks that would work well in a club setting. Mostly the album is preteen fantasy fodder with songs about dream boys, perfect loves, and super-sweet, super-nice things delivered with a feather-light touch and the occasional moment of inspiration. Balanced with these moments are the times (like on "My J" or "Sunflower") when the backing tracks barely rise about karaoke levels and threaten to sink the album entirely. On the whole, though, the well-crafted, propulsive club tracks like "Telepathy," "Trick," and "Mr. Taxi" carry the day and the album ends up being a bunch of fun. The best track, "The Boys," sounds as good as anything on pop radio in 2012 and shows that when they are firing on all cylinders, Girls' Generation have what it takes to conquer the world of pop. ~ Tim Sendra

On Becoming Preteen Wise: Parenting Your Child from 8-12 Years (Paperback)


On Becoming Preteen Wise: Parenting Your Child from 8-12 Years (Paperback)


$11.89


"The middle years, eight to twelve years of age, are perhaps the most significant attitude-forming period in the life of a child. It is during this time that the roots of moral character are established. From the foundation that is formed, healthy or not-so-healthy family relationships will be built. These are the years when patterns of behavior are firmly established patterns that will impact your parent-child relationship for decades to come. Rightly meeting the small challenges of the middle years significantly reduces the likelihood of big challenges in the teen years. In other words, the groundwork you lay during your childs middle years will forever impact your relationship even long after he or she is grown. Included are discussions related to the eight major transitions of middle years children including how to create a family-dependent and not a peer-dependent child. How to lead by your relational influence and not by coercive authority. What discipline methods work and what methods do not work and how to recognize if your child is in trouble."

LOST BOYS – LOST BOYS

An excerpt from The Lost Boys: Music or Myth? By Myron G. Hill, Ed. The New Collegiate Encyclopedia of Music (as published in The International Musicians Society magazine, October 2005) 'Teal sightings… Power chords… 'Show us the sign…' The legend of the Lost Boys is truly one the most fascinating musical enigmas in the history of western music. Rumors of their exploits exist in every European country, and traces of their presence extend to the Americas, to the Middle East and beyond. But nowhere is there more evidence to be found of this late 16th century musical phenomenon than in the British Isles, where, during the cultural flowering of Elizabethan England, the combination of artistic freedom and the popular demand for exciting entertainments brought forth a musical group whose influence could be clearly felt even after four hundred years. I began my serious research into the history and lore of the Lost Boys over two decades ago while working on my dissertation, 'Musical Practice and Repertoire in the Works of William Shakespeare,' at the Guildhall School of Music in London in the mid 1980's. All the usual suspects were accounted for in my studies, from Playford to Peele, Byrd to Ballet, but my own personal agenda involved the musical accomplishments of four 'Bonny Boys in Blue,' whose influence on the music and culture of their day I felt surely warranted more thorough documentation. I began publishing articles on the Lost Boys towards the end of the decade, and eventually I was fortunate enough to contribute an entry on Our Lads to the 1994 edition of The New Collegiate Encyclopedia of Music, as a newly appointed editor for that time-honored resource. These scholarly endeavors brought me to the attention of the venerable Norman E. Kyle, who, through his tome The Complete Works of Anatole Krovny (published, 1973) presented to the world the first substantial reference book concerning the Lost Boys and their work (Krovny was the Lost Boys' patron and liaison over much of their career). Kyle was quick to

And though this quartet of video-friendly fresh-faced boys has garnered many superficial comparisons to former teen idols New Kids On The Block, the Backstreet Boys sound has a bit more going for it. A more streetwise approach, hook-filled arrangements, a distinctive mixture of rapping and vocal harmonies and an endless supply of floor-shaking dance beats are the distinguishing marks of these platinum-plus pop poster boys.

Personnel: Gabriel Alcala (vocals, guitar, percussion); Bill Skibbe (guitar, keyboards, synthesizer, percussion); Danny Gonzalez (guitar, synthesizer, percussion); Diego Monasteri (drums, percussion, background vocals).Audio Mixers: Jessica Ruffins; Bill Skibbe.Recording information: Key Club Recording Co., Benton Harbor, MI (10/2012-11/2012).The Jacuzzi Boys' self-titled third album shows the rambunctious Florida trio growing up and cleaning up. Not too much; they still have plenty of the unbridled energy and joy that burst through the speakers like rays of sunshine. Clean enough, though, that the album might appeal to people who don't know Ty Segall from Ty Burrell. Grown up enough that the band doesn't sound like they're cutting class to record. Working with Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins at Key Club Studio, then having the record mastered by the legendary Kramer, shows that the band is taking things more seriously, and that maybe they'll be taken more seriously in return. These concerns are mostly for indie rock fanatics — what really matters is that working with these people has helped give the Boys' sound more power and punch, focusing their ramshackle energy into something laser guided and capable of exploding into bursts of truly exciting rock & roll on tracks like "Rubble" and "Hotline." While those rockers are the songs that might reach out and grab you the first time through, there's more to the album than that. It's a fully rounded record — the more restrained songs like "Double Vision" and "Guillotine" have enough dynamic tension to give off sparks, and the quieter songs like "Dust" and "Heavy Horse" show that the band can play soft with as much force as on the rocked-out tracks. It's a great collaboration between producers and band that results in an album that's a step ahead from their previous work and it keeps everything that was good and builds on it, adding new sounds and generally tightening things up until it sounds ready to pop. There are many (too many?) bands in 2013 playing this kind o

Boys – The Boys


$14.54


Personnel: Honest John Plain, Matt Dangerfield (vocals, guitar); Casino Steel (vocals, keyboards).Recording information: Rock On Studios, Seynod, France.If a band is going to confront the question of "Aren't they a little old to still be doing this?," calling your album Punk Rock Menopause is one way of grabbing that particular bull by the horns, and tossing in lyrics like "It's a mid-life problem, and yours has a '70s twist" only adds further fuel to the fire. In short, the Boys haven't lost a bit of their trademark snark in the 33 years since they last released a studio album, and Punk Rock Menopause shows they still know how to make a fine album that delivers plentiful rock action. Then as now, the Boys' brand of punk rock is informed by glam and power pop more than the chockablock attack of the Sex Pistols or the Clash (the Boys initially pre-dated those bands, anyway), and core members Matt Dangerfield, Honest John Plain, and Casino Steel know how to write songs that combine big guitars with tough rockin' tunes that still have stick-in-your ear hooks. While "What's the Matter with Morris," "How Can I Miss You," and "How Hot You Are" will please fans who recall the Boys' glory days, the bitter sarcasm of "I'm a Believer" and "Global Warming" show these guys are living in the here and now and have something funny but apt to say about it. And though the Boys refuse to pretend they're any younger than they are (when one of your cultural references is a woman as beautiful as Julie Christie in Dr. Zhivago, you've effectively dated yourself), their status as bloodied but unbowed survivors serves this music well. Punk Rock Menopause is no instant classic like To Hell with the Boys, but it shows the Boys still have clever ideas and tricks up their sleeves, and the panache to pull them off. For a band that stayed away from the studio for three decades, this is welcome proof that the Boys still have the goods, and there is life in rock & roll after The Change. ~ Mark Deming

ORDINARY BOYS – ORDINARY BOYS


$10.18


2015 release from the Britpop band. After a hiatus of nearly 10 years, The Ordinary Boys are back with what is arguably their strongest album to date. Lead single 'Four Letter Word' is a soaring, energy driven statement of intent reminiscent of their 2004 Top 20 debut Over The Counter Culture. A return to their former sound is no surprise, since the reformed line-up consists of the original trio Preston, James Gregory (bass) and Charlie Chuck Stanley (drums) – plus new member Louis Jones from celebrated power-pop band Spectrals on guitar. Preston met Louis stage-diving at a Cribs gig and, knew immediately that I wanted him to be my new best friend/collaborator. Over the last year they have been busy writing and recording their new album and have enlisted Rory Atwell (the Vaccines, Veronica Falls) and MJ (of Hookworms) on production duties and Dan Lancaster (Bring Me The Horizon, Lower Than Atlantis) for mixing.

Twelve-year-old best friends, Danny, Will and Trout, know how to squeeze every drop of adventure out of the Lost Bay. Whether it’s fishing for alligator gars, hunting fictitious snipe, or finding Spanish treasure in Pirate’s Canyon, their Tom Sawyer-esque tale is a journey back to the days when kids roamed free and somehow still survived. The boy’s idyllic world and friendships are pushed to the limit by forces they never figure out: pre-teen girls, rich country-club brats and killer hurricanes. Ultimately, they learn whether or not true friendship can be discovered on the Lost Bay. A Good Day to Live mixes homespun humor with an honest bead of sweat into guaranteed smiles, tears and simple reminders of right over wrong.

A dream of many years has come to fruition. For many years, growing up, I was encouraged to be a writer by my mother. She told me to experience life and one day I will have the heart to write a great book. I began sailing the Chesapeake Bay in my sixteen foot Hobie cat when I was a preteen. As I gained experience, I grew braver and ventured across the bay and into some of the major rivers that flowed into it. One day, about midday, I was sailing up the York river and I met a young Mattiponi boy about my same age. I offered to take him for a ride on my cat and a friendship developed. When I graduated from high school, I attended a small college in North Carolina. The Vietnam war was developing so I felt it was my duty to join the service. I became a Navy photographer. When my tour of duty was completed, I decided to return to college and get my degree. I graduated with a BS in elementary education 4-7. I enjoyed my career of 28 years of teaching but I hadn’t met my goal to write a book. Having taught about the Woodland Powhatan Indians throughout the years, I focused my research and learned about and visited close local tribe sights and museums. I retired from teaching to write my book. After many reams of paper and constant editing and revising, my two plus years of writing finally became hopeful reality. We all have watched Apache raids in movies and on tv and read James F. Cooper’s Last of the Mohicans but what about a story about Indian life before the invasion of the alien British Colonists. Who were the Tidewater Woodland Powhatan Indians and what is their story? Michael Crist

Angel with Crooked Feet chronicles the life of Tony Sarjant, born with a club foot to a mother who didnt want him. He spent the first ten years of his life in and out of hospitals before his pre-teen life of petty crime landed him in a detention center for boys where he was sexually assaulted for years. As a teenager he discovered the dark world of the occult, a world he fully embraced as a young man. His first marriage seemed to be the start of a new, happier life, but after the births of his daughter and son he learned his wife was having an affair and that she was still married to another man! After his marriage ended, Tonys life dissolved into years of drifting back and forth across Europe, punctuated by heavy drinking and several attempts at suicide, including the one that almost succeeded. Then, in his late 30s, he met the woman who would change his life, Denise, now his wife of more than 20 years. Through Denise, Tonys life was saved by the power of real love, the power of God. And through more trials, including a prison term and a crash that left him helpless, he found his purpose in life. I know we can make a difference in the lives of hurting children, Tony says, no matter how old they are. Angel with Crooked Feet is the inspiring story that demonstrates the truth of that promise.

Around the Water Tank: Memories of a Mid-Century Mill Village


$15.68


In Around the Water Tank, author Jim Haigler molds his words to create visual images of various aspects of life in the nineteen forties and fifties. He paints these pictures in the context of twenty-four humorous and touching stories of a young boy growing up in a mill village at a time when the country was adjusting to post war prosperity and the emerging threat of the cold war. This quaint semi-autobiographical collection will stir the memories of the writer’s generation and is certain to charm and entertain while capturing the imagination of all ages. One main purpose in writing this book was to try and capture the essence of an era that is rapidly vanishing from our collective memory. My intent was to document and pass on the spirit of the times through a series of stories. Each is based on actual events and is as accurate as memory allows. A few have been enhanced to include some things that almost happened, and other things that we talked about doing but were chicken. The obvious target audience is comprised of those who remember the times and will have their memory nudged toward pleasant recollections of their own. It can also encourage a younger market, particularly pre-teen boys, to read more by presenting adventures on the playground, bikes, skates, fishing and snake hunting in humorous short reads that will capture their imagination and hold their attention.
