Dr. Michael Finegan, a clinical psychologist with Peninsula Mental Health Services, says it is all about monitoring and moderation.
"I think that parents need to set those limits, enforce boundaries on a consistent basis," he says. "That's healthy parenting."
However, before kids even get their hands into the technology, Dr. Finegan says there are conversations that need to happen. First, he urges parents to have a discussion about sexuality in a positive way, or as an aspect of love and caring. After that, he says the conversations can move to the mistakes and the consequences that follow, for instance, when "sexting."
"Parenting begins at birth and with an openness of discussion. We want them to see us as allies, as someone that can assist them," he says. "The idea that if 'it's not broke don't fix it' is not the concept we want to apply."
It's a conversation the Wicomico High School mother says she is currently having with her daughter, and she is urging others to do the same.

Michael Finegan, a member of the IACP Psychological Services Section and lead psychologist for the Maryland State Police, says that if there's any downside to a big-city police officer taking over a smaller agency, it can stem from perhaps being frustrated with the lack of resources. They also are more likely to have to take on the same mundane tasks they handled as big-city rookies, he says.
On the bright side, Finegan says, a small-town chief doesn't have layers of bureaucracy to deal with. "They can leave a lasting legacy for all the things they wanted to implement but were prevented by all the gatekeepers … in large-department organizations," he says.

BALTIMORE - When psychologist Michael Finegan arrived in Sri Lanka the week after the tsunami struck, he wondered how just one man could help amid so much misery.
The answer provided itself when leaders from Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu and Christian communities told him that psychological services were needed as well as medical care, food and shelter.
So Finegan decided to help those who could help others.
The Sri Lankan leaders were asked to identify teachers, priests, nuns, clerics and others who were educated and mature enough to receive a crash course in dealing with trauma.
Over the next three weeks, about 550 people were trained and asked to train others, starting a process that Finegan says he knows will take years.
"What we did was that we boiled down the advanced psychological and psychiatric concepts of trauma intervention into its simplest basic forms that could be rapidly learned," said Finegan, executive director of Peninsula Mental Health Services in Salisbury, and lead trauma counselor for the Maryland State Police.
The lesson included simple concepts such as telling those being trained that tsunami victims may take years to grieve and there is no set schedule; that children often cannot express what they are feeling; and that young children often think they may be to blame for what happened.
What wasn't contained in the four-hour course, Finegan said, was the cooperation he found among the groups that had been openly hostile to each other in the past.
Finegan said the leaders he worked with pledged to tell their religious superiors how the members of the various faiths worked together so "in 20 years what will be remembered is not the tsunami, but how people of different ethnic and religious groups came together to help their fellow man."
The psychologist said he was prompted to volunteer because of a lesson he learned from the brothers who taught him at the LaSalle Military Academy, in Oakdale, N.Y.
"You are given certain gifts," he said.
