Time to warn children of texting dangers

It appears there are increasing amounts of students becoming involved in the behaviour.

It is also worthwhile explaining the reality of what happens to their photos once sent.

On most occasions, the students are totally unaware of the consequences and dangers of their actions until police become involved.

The concerning thing for us is, that some of the children are as young as 11 or 12 years old. Police would encourage parents to visit the Cybersmart website www. cybersmart.gov.au.

You can also phone the ACMA’s Cybersafety Contact Centre on 1800 880 176 for further advice and information.
