Sexting – what can you do if an image is out there

Looking out window

If your child is unhappy that they have shared an image that they shouldn't, what can you do?

  • Ask the recipient to delete it.
  • If it's been shared on social networking sites, you can contact the sites and ask them to take it down.
  • If something exposing has already happened, you can urge your child to increase their activity online in positive ways - to comment on news stories or run a small blog. All this will help to bury the pictures.
