Signs to look for in
Sexting refers to the sending of provocative or sexual photos, messages or videos, generally using a mobile phone. It can also include posting this type of material online.
While sharing suggestive images or text messages may seem like innocent flirting or be amusing for many young people, sexting can have serious social and legal consequences, especially when the images are spread beyond the control of the sender.
Sextortion is a type of exploitation that involves coercion to extort sexual favors from the victim. It is also a type of blackmail in which sexual images or videos are used to force sexual favors from the victim. People who sext may find themselves victims of sextortion.
Affects a young person’s well being and development.
For example: emotional harm or damage and can potentially scar a young person for life.
Cyberbullying can leave a person feeling scared , powerless, helpless and ashamed. It can also lead to poor functioning in both social and occupational roles, as well as suicide in some circumstances later in life.
It also affects relationships - trust is broken between individuals and groups.
It excludes others- social exclusion instead of providing a sense of belonging and safety
Threats of physical harm
Being ignored or excluded
Having opinions slammed
Being sent rude or upsetting
images. (eg. Pornography, nude)
How did it make you feel?
What did you do?
When sexting involves a person who is under 16 by a person who is over 18, the person who is over 18 could be committing some other very serious crimes.
This is because when you turn 18, you legally become an adult, and the law takes any kind of sexual interaction between an adult and a child very seriously.
When sexting is unwanted and happens at work or at school, it could also be a form of sexual harassment
Sexting can result in humiliation, bullying and harassment of students, and in the worst cases students may be forced to leave their schools or may even take their own lives.
Implications of sexting
How can we stay safe online
Who can see your information?
Everything you post online combines to make your digital footprint. Remember that what you share with your friends may also be viewed by people you don’t know. And once it’s online, it could be there forever. So think before you post.

Be a part of the solution
I would strongly encourage you to take positive action to address bullying/cyber bullying:
Set healthy boundaries for friendships and relationships.
You can do this by -
Being BOLD and assertive and let the offender know that their behaviour is not acceptable.
assertive behaviour look like?
Say “No” to cyberbullying, using “I” statements. For example. “That is hurtful. This behaviour is not acceptable. I will distance myself from you if this keeps happening.”
Receive the “good”, reject the “bad”. Do NOT participate or join in the “rumours/gossip”.
Or “how would you feel if you are in my shoes?”
Set a good example by being kind and think before you speak/act.
Assertive behavior is “Behavior which
enables a person to act in his own best
interests, to stand up for himself without
undue anxiety, to express his honest
feeling comfortably, or to exercise his own
rights without denying the rights of others.”
(Calberti and Emmons 1974)
Late primary school and early high school - 10-14 year olds (50.6%). Cyberbullying usually focuses on physical appearances
15-18 years olds (44.2%) Cyberbullying tends to focus on relationships and the way people act, especially if they do not fit the norm.
Cyberbullying affects 20% of all young people.
