Did you know that more than *20% of teenagers receive sexts while more than 14% send them on average?
It sounds like a very small number and it never crossed my mind that my child can become a victim of it.
I'm sure you can imagine how devastated I felt when I found out. I was more scared than angry…
Scared of what other things she's been exposed to while constantly being online
Frightened that whatever she's sent to someone has been shared countless times without her consent.
My first thought was, "How can I change her habits?" Like all teens, she naturally starts pulling away when I start the discussion. So what can I do?
'Like' it or not, but being online using social media can cause anxiety, depression, and other health challenges.
