Zoom calls have become a pretty everyday occurrence in most households these days. Sometimes it's calls to Grandma, other times it's work meetings , or sometimes it's your 7-year-old daughter on a never-ending Zoom call with her friends. That was apparently the case for Ashley Foret Smith, a mom of three from Florida who unwittingly walked out of the shower completely naked while her first grader was on a Zoom call -- giving a free show to all of her friends. Jumped out. Threw my hair up in a towel. Leisurely sauntered across the room to grab my clothes," the mom wrote in a Facebook post on May 5. Pretty sweet setup, if you ask us. That is, ahem , unless not everyone in the home is aware of it.

By Carly Stern For Dailymail. A mother-of-three from Jacksonville, Florida experienced every parent's nightmare when she accidentally crashed her daughter's Zoom meeting with her classmates — while completely naked. Ashley Foret Smith says her three daughters were set up with computers in other rooms of the house on May 5 when she hopped into the shower. But little did she know that while she was in there, her youngest daughter had moved into her bedroom and started a Zoom meeting. So when Ashley came out of the bathroom with just a towel wrapped around her head — and nothing else — she realized too late that her seven-year-old's classmates could see her completely naked. Funny story
Sometimes, kids' games head into the nude-and-rude territory. What's normal and safe and what's not? We thought it was hysterically funny - though we also had a vague notion that it was a bit naughty and rue. Er, rude. There was absolutely nothing sexual in it. It was just six-year-old girls being a bit silly and curious. Her mother agreed that it did, but seven-year-old Lena wants to check for herself.
If your child has sent a nude, what steps should you take and what support can you expect from local agencies? Our experts provide insight on this and more about the law, sexting and tips to manage the situation. Most schools will make a judgement on whether to involve outside agencies such as the police but it is important that parents are involved in the discussions and whether support, further education or punishment is most appropriate. Each sexting incident is different and it is important that schools deal with them appropriately on a case by case basis. Many sexting incidents are now dealt with in this way. However, for more serious incidents for example, deliberately sharing an image to abuse, using the image to coerce or exploit the victim prosecution may still take place.
