Fury as under-age girls used to sex-up nightclub

This shocked me!  Not because these girls were photographed.  Not because they were underage.  Not because their photos were uploaded to Facebook but because their parents blamed the owners!  Firstly one might wonder where the parents of these girls thought they were that night.  Not that the parents are entirely to blame.  Girls are good at inventing stories.  Secondly did these girls, natives of the Facebook Generation, at any time stop to consider their digital reputation, their digital responsibility to themselves, to their school, to their parents? Perhaps it was even part of the fun – having their photos taken.  Did they think for a moment of the future?  Of where those photos might end up? Did they question their right to be at the Club at the age of 16?  Use this to have a conversation about digital citizenship with your teenagers.  What are their rights and responsibilities in this situation? How would they have responded?
