Default Teenagers / Twitter

I've just read my 18 year old nieces twitter. Which, sadly led me to my 14 year old nephew's.

Someone please tell me, that 'fingering' is a euphemism?

euphemism for what?.. certainly it would seem to refer to some sort of sexual activity..

I guess it's a euphemism for safe sex!

Reply to her twitter and remind her about using a condom if she 'goes too far'. Offer to get her some supplies in. Be a good auntie.

I suspect the worry is about the fact that the comment appeared on the 14yr old's twitter feed..

I worked with teenagers so maybe that is why I don't find it shocking. A friendly word from Auntie may make them aware of the public nature of their communication, but I can assure you they say a lot worse in private. At 14 the boy knows the birds and the bees. Tell him to stick a condom on it too.

he does realise that its open to the whole world to see and that whoever he is talking to is probably under age so also against the law ? (that'll be a no then) maybe parents need to be made aware and his access to the WWW be put on hold for some time

Check out any twitter (if you dare). My nephew follows an utter twunt, I won't name him. He has 100k followers, and his claim to fame is asking young girls to post pictures of themselves in compromising positions.

I know, all that fingering and not a hand job in sight. Selfish!

I work with teenagers too. The things they talk about is quite frankly shocking. AND, social media is our biggest bug bear. I like the friendly auntie tweet idea.

The problem is that you can be blocked on Twitter, I know that my grandaughter has me on a block list, same as she has on Facebook, no idea why, think she just doesn't want us to know what she is doing.
