WARN YOUR CHILDREN OF THIS DANGER
SEXTING refers to the sending of provocative or sexual photos, messages or videos, generally using a mobile phone or posting this type of material online. Sexting is a common occurrence between children. Engaging in this activity can result in serious sexual offences being committed by all parties. The result may be a criminal conviction or being registered as a serious sexual offender. Warn your child about the consequences of sexting, both socially and legally. Remind them to think before they act – taking or sending sexual images, even of themselves, has ramifications that may be illegal. Remind your child to delete any sexual content they receive from others and to avoid forwarding this type of content. Remind your child to consider the feelings of others when distributing any content by mobile phone or online. Learn to use your child’s mobile phone and talk with them about what they can and can’t do with it. –
