You’ve seen the headlines and heard about the real-life consequences, but do you know the truth about teens and sexting? Brace yourself, it’s scary to say the least.
This infographic, by uKnowKids, shows us what we need to know. Even if your son or daughter isn’t sending sexually suggestive messages or pictures, there’s a pretty good chance they are getting them, a 48% chance to be exact.
uKnowKids enables parents to connect to their child’s digital world, giving us the information and technology we need to keep our kids safe from predators, bullies and sexting.
