I’ll be talking about information and consent this afternoon at the Association of Internet Researchers conference here in Denver.
When I discuss sexting, I often get questions from terrified parents wanting to know what to tell their daughters and how to protect them from being victimized. I think it’s also really important to ask: How can I make sure my son never victimizes anyone?
For both questions, here’s one answer: teach them about consent from age 1 onwards. I even have a link to a guide that helps parents do just that. For more advice, check out my sexting tips page.
