What Parents Need to Know About Sexting

Published 15th July 2020

Sexting, or sending nudes, is illegal for anyone under the age of 18. Despite this, recent research suggests that young people continue to share nude images of themselves, with one in five teenagers admitting they were pressured or blackmailed into it. Separate research also indicates an increase in so-called ‘sexts’ typed out by children during lockdown. That’s why we’ve created this guide to help parents and carers understand exactly what sexting is all about.
