7 Things Parents and Teens Need to Know About Snapchat
Here are a few things teens and parents need to know before another post is made:
1. Snapchat isn’t for kids younger than 13
If you’re between 13 and 17 years old, a parent or legal guardian is expected to understand and agree to Snapchat’s terms of service, which gives them permission to access certain personal information, including your email address, age or other details.
If you have younger children, consider the Snapkidz app, which lets them take pictures and draw on them, without sending them to anyone.
2. Privacy settings are two-pronged
Snapchat has two settings, with the option of “my friends” and “everyone.” One controls who can see what you post. The other controls who can send you photos.
Make sure both of those settings are set on “my friends” so you have greater control over the media you send and receive.
3. You should control your friends list
Like every other social-media site, you’ll get spam and ads, so don't add anyone to your friends list unless you’re sure you know who they are.
4. Snapchats won’t disappear
Many users think that because the app only lets photos appear on a receiver's phone between one and 10 seconds, they will disappear before they do any harm. But people who see the photos can save them easily by taking a screenshot or a photo with another device.
That's how things that were supposed to disappear in 10 seconds go viral.
5. Replay feature increases sharing
One function allows users to replay a snap sent to them any time within the past 24 hours. So if your photo is one you don't want shared, the damage is done.
6. Illegal content can be reported
Pornography, nudity or sexually suggestive content involving minors, minors engaged in physically dangerous or harmful activities, invasions of privacy, threats, harassment or bullying, impersonation and self-harm all violate Snapchat’s community guidelines.
If you receive any snapchats fitting in those categories, you can report the user on Snapchat’s website.
7. Blocking feature secretly 'unfriend'
If your child is being bullied or harassed by someone, that person can be blocked. Their names will remain on your friends' list, but your name disappears from theirs. They won’t be told they're blocked, but they won't find you even if they search for you.

Sleep Arguments Every Couple Has
TUCKED OR UNTUCKED
You know what people tend to find when they fall in love? Those who like loosely fitted sheets so they can kick their feet around at night and those who like to be sealed into their bed like sardines in a damn CAN! You can see why that would present a problem.
FOOD IN BED
Okay this isn’t technically a sleep-related argument so much as a general bed argument, but every couple argues over whether or not food can be in the bed. Or, they argue over what type of food can be in the bed.
You like to sleep with your phone on silent so you’re not woken by stupid drunk texts from friends at 3am. But what’s the point if he leaves his phone’s ringer on?
GOING TO BED AT THE SAME TIME
If you’re trying to turn in by 10 pm, but your partner is going in and out of the bedroom until midnight, what’s the point? He is stealing that sleep from you!

10 White Lies All Best Friends Have Told Each Other
1. “I’ve already deleted it.”
When you’ve taken a hilarious ugly photo of them that you fully intend to keep for devious uses in the future.
2. “You look perfect in that, honestly, now come on, let’s go.”
When they’re taking forever to decide what to wear and you really don’t want to be late.
3. “You look absolutely incredible.”
When there’s no rush, but they just need a confidence boost.
4. “It wasn’t that bad.”
When they’ve done something pretty awful* while drunk the night before, and they’re kind of freaking out.
*Once it’s safely in the past you will take great joy in painfully describing to them just how awful it really was.
5. “Yeah I agree, they looked so much better when you were together.”
When your best friend asks whether you think their ex has got uglier since they stopped dating, but you never especially liked them in the first place.
6. “I heard they’re completely miserable; it sounds like you’re handling the breakup much better.”
Because sometimes reassurance is much more important than the truth.
7. “Can I borrow your top?”
What you really mean is: “Can I borrow your top for tonight, but then not give it back and keep it forever and ever?”
8. “You made out with [insert Person They Really, Really Would Never Want to Make Out With here].”
Just to see their reaction and take advantage of how wasted they got last night.
9. “Yeah, I hate them too.”
When your best friend has a new enemy but you don’t have much of a feeling about them either way.
*Soon you will genuinely hate them just as much, if not more, than they do – because that’s how best friendships work.
10. “Drunk calories don’t count.”
This is as much for your benefit as theirs.

Experts Bust 7 Myths About Your Love Life
MYTH: YOU CAN'T GET PREGNANT ON YOUR PERIOD
TRUTH: There is no time at which a woman between the ages of 15 and 50 can't get pregnant. The window of opportunity for a woman to conceive can occur is a brief three to four day-period which occurs around the cycle days of 18 or 19.
But a good egg released during ovulation has a life span of possibly about four or five days days and healthy sperm can fertilize an egg for up to four days.
MYTH: HEADACHES ARE A GOOD EXCUSE NOT TO Do The Deed
TRUTH: In women, orgasm might actually help the pain of a headache, canceling out the age-old ‘Not tonight’ excuse.
MYTH: SEX AND ORGASM CAN STIMULATE EARLY LABOR
Truth: Sex can induce labor, but the cervix needs to be ready. Semen contains hormones that can soften the cervix and stimulate contractions - but only if you’re close to your due date. If the cervix isn’t ripe, it won’t be receptive to the hormones.
MYTH: PEEING BEFORE SEX REDUCES THE RISK OF A URINARY TRACT INFECTION
TRUTH: Around half of all women and one in 2,000 men will develop a urinary tract infection (UTI) each year. Sex is a common cause of UTIs, and peeing before sex ‘is the number one cause of post-coital urinary tract infections.’
Not urinating before sex means you will have enough urine stored in the bladder to create a strong stream, making it more likely that bacteria will be flushed out later.
MYTH: HAVING SEX INCREASES YOUR CHANCES OF A HEART ATTACK
TRUTH: Heart attack patients are often worried about getting busy between the sheets but researchers have found that sexual activity is not a risk factor in any future heart attacks. Less than one per cent of patients reported having sex within an hour before having a heart attack.
MYTH: IF YOU LIE WITH YOUR FEET IN THE AIR YOU INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF GETTING PREGNANT
TRUTH: In fact, lying down instead is more effective at increasing your chances of pregnancy. A study in the UK found that women who lay flat for 15 minutes have a 50 percent greater chance of getting pregnant than those who immediately get up and walk around.
MYTH: PEOPLE WITH BAD BACKS SHOULD AVOID STRENUOUS SEX
TRUTH: Four out of five people experience at least one episode of severe lower back pain in their lifetimes and up to 84 percent of men and 73 percent of women with the condition report a decrease in the frequency of sex.
A study in the journal Spine found that certain positions could make sex less painful for sufferers – depending on the type of back pain you have. Women with low back pain should arch their backs or lie on their stomachs during sex. For men, doggy style is the best position.
