A new sexting response plan is available for educators! The group who produced the plan,Youth Online Safety Working Group (YOSWG), is compiled of law enforcement representatives and educators.
According to the YOSWG, 1 in 6 teens are affected by sexting, including those who face legal and social issues as a result. To help alleviate some of the worries behind sexting YOSWG has put together an Interdisiplianary Response to Youths Sexting to help parents deal with sexting in their households.
The guide comes fully equipped with response plans and links to outside resources to help you better understand the issues. You can view YOSWG’s guide here.
YOSWG formed in May 2009 to address the issue of sexting among teens.
