The world changes…children don’t

Modern day Romeo & Juliet

What would the story of Romeo & Juliet look like in the present day? Star-crossed teens messaging, sending snaps and taking risks – all without their parents being aware. The world changes. Children don’t. That’s why it’s important to talk to your child about sex, relationships and the internet.

From a brand new public awareness campaign. Through social media, articles, blogs, films and more, TUK wants to get parents and carers thinking and talking about the importance of discussing sex, relationships and the internet with their children.

This is a three month campaign, and the first new resource is called “The world changes. Children don’t”.

This short film that tells the age-old story of Romeo and Juliet… with a modern twist. It shows how the lives of these young lovers might play out online today, including the Lark ‘tweeting’ and Romeo ‘friending’ Juliet.
