Nudes & Sexting
Sexting, "the act of sending sexually explicit messages or photos over a mobile phone, social media app, or the Internet" and it happens more frequently than many of us think.
Not only should teens be made aware of the emotional consequences of sexting but the legal ramifications as well. For instance, most of the time sexting involves minors, so these nude photos are considered child pornography. As a result sending or receiving these messages is now a crime.
Our Life Skills programme aims to educate students not to send such images. Once an explicit image is sent - it’s out there!
Our concern is the huge number of young people who are taking part in this risky behaviour.
