More U.S. teens than ever are using smartphones as their main access to the Internet, according to a recent report from the Pew Internet and American Life Project. But teens’ constant texting and Internet access can create headaches for parents worried about monitoring sexting, cyber-bullying and other inappropriate online activities. What are teens up to on the web these days, and how much should parents control teens’ online behavior?

Guests:

Jim Steyer, CEO and founder of Common Sense Media, a San Fancisco-based non-profit seeking to improve media and entertainment on behalf of kids and families

Amanda Lenhart, senior researcher and director of Teens and Technology at the Pew Research Center

Madeline Levine, Marin psychologist and author of books such as "Teach Your Children Well" and "The Price of Privilege"
