I do not believe that for a second. These kids never tell the truth in surveys, regardless of the anonymity that is promised them. I have spoken with many kids regarding the surveys that they get in school (not this one in particular) and the general answer is that they lie and BS and sensationalize whatever they want. One kid told me that he had never done drugs but on a "how do you smoke marijuana question" he answered "Daily". I am not surprised. If for a moment, parents or educators think that sexting is on the decline - you are viewing the problem with rose colored glasses. Wise up! I am sure that law enforcement doesn't view this as a valid report and will still get sexting cases handed to them on a weekly basis. Surveys are only as truthful as the truth that is used to answer them.
