THE BRONX - The Department of Education says that it's investigating an alleged "sexting" incident at a Bronx school.

Police say two female students at Aspire Preparatory School sent inappropriate pictures and videos from their cell phones to two male students. They say the explicit content was then posted on the Internet and quickly went viral.

According to experts from the Kingsbridge Heights Community Center, texting sexual messages is happening more often among young people and many parents don't know about it. Therapists say parents need to talk to their children about personal boundaries and self respect.
