What may be news, however, is that parents of such teenagers would need a reminder of how to respond when their sons and daughters circulate photographs of themselves drunk, passed out or in various stages of undress.
Heres what the parents of all the young people who fed the @LIPartyStories inappropriate images of themselves should do: Confiscate their phones, shut down their Twitter and Facebook accounts and test them randomly for drugs and alcohol every two or three weeks for the next year. Each positive test should result in being grounded for a month. And every one of the teenagers directly involved should be in psychotherapy.
School administrators should suspend each and every one of them from school for two weeks and admit them back to school only with a note from a psychologist or psychiatrist or licensed social worker stating that the student has begun treatment.
Why take such seemingly dramatic steps? Because every, single teenager who sent out a photograph of himself or herself involved in sex or obviously drunk or on drugs via @LIPartyStories is emotionally disordered -- probably suffering with one or more symptoms of a brewing personality disorder (narcissistic personality disorder), very possibly depressed, likely abusing alcohol or drugs or both and very likely addicted to at least one very potent drug: the Internet.

Narcissistic Presidents of the US..; who post Selfies......DITTOS
Charge them with distributing child porn a few times, put them on 5 years probtion and the problem will fix itself
Please allow Epstein back into school...he has begun treatment.
The problem with therapy is that often the caregivers have the very same affliction and just make it worse for the patient. Go to any drug or alcohol facility and you’ll find the caregivers are eith all ex-drugees or alcoholics or are still suffering from it...

You DO realize, don’t you, what the “millenials” consider being grounded?
I went with a relative to a Baptist church in Tulsa, last night, for their Celebrate Recovery program, and from what I saw, it didn’t seem that way.
There also was a neighbor that moved in nearby and I found out that she was working at a recovery facility and she was a former drug addict. In just the few weeks that she’s been in the neighborhood, she already zeroed in on a relative (here) that is not doing well “in recovery” and she was able to do more to help (it seemed to me) than we’ve been able to do in a couple of years.
NOW ... here I’m talking about voluntary programs, but I’ve also seen that the “mandated programs” where the person is forced into the program by the legal system, you will see many there who are still doing their drugs right in the middle of the program itself.
But, no one can cut through the drug addicts excises quicker than a former addict who is working with them. That’s what I’ve seen.
You gotta do something; you can’t sit back and do nothing.
Epstein’s Mom “
This is really good tough love. The young lady who gets disciplined this way at age 16 will scream bloody murder. Then, at 26, when she desperately wants to become an associate in a prestigious law firm, she’ll thank God for the prescience of her loving parents, especially when she sees friends whose career hopes were ruined by such postings.
In the “New Culture”, doing nothing is doing something.
I beat my kids up continuously for this failing. They continue to default to the cultural norms.
Back in my day, when I did something stupid and shameful, I got the crap beat out of me, and then I had so many chores for so long, it was six inches taller before I tasted freedom.
However I was not so Stupid, that it only happened once, my younger brother got the benefit of my demise, of course that was the plan all along.
And of course I didn’t even think about running away, I learned that through my older brother.
I’ve been fortunate in that my kid is far less a hellraiser than I was.
Now, that’s a blessing ... :-) ...
