What can you do?
Talking to children about the risks posed by sharing images online can empower them to make better decisions for themselves and others.
When something happens and it’s in the news, use the opportunity to raise the subject and invite young people to consider how they might feel if the incident had happened to one of their friends.
Get them to consider what advice they could have given or what they could have done and who they could have advised their friend to turn to for help.
Top Tip: Set a homework based on an incident in the news and have parents and carers work with their children to list what to do and to whom to turn for help.
