Sexting

NSPCC

Sexting’ is an increasingly common activity among children and young people where they share inappropriate or explicit images online or through mobile phones.  It can also refer to written messages.  As a parent, it is important to understand the risks so that you can talk to your child about how to stay safe and what to do if they ever feel scared or uncomfortable.  You can find help and advice to pass on to your parents on the NSPCC website.  Also watch the Newsnight clip below, it is quite an eye opener!
