"Sexting, texting and social media — the new world of teen communications" — that's the title of one of the talks taking place at the Critical Issues in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Conference on Saturday in San Diego.

Janet Rosenzweig, Ph.D., will be giving the talk. She is a national child health, safety and welfare expert and the author of "The Sex-Wise Parent: The Parent’s Guide to Protecting Your Child, Strengthening Your Family, and Talking to Kids About Sex, Abuse, and Bullying."

Rosenzweig joined Midday Edition on Tuesday to talk about the the impact sexting, texting and social media can have on a teen's mental health and ways parents can lessen that impact.
