#StaySafeStayHome Edition - The new normal
In this #StaySafeStayHome Edition, we focus on our latest report highlighting children and young people's experience of sexting. In collaboration with the Cybersurvey by Youthworks our report - Look at me - Teens, sexting and risks - reveals that nearly a fifth of schoolchildren, who have sent sexts said they were pressured or blackmailed into doing so.
While there is a growing concern on children's mental health and wellbeing due to restrictions of COVID-19, this issue, particularly for vulnerable children, is important to gain insight to better support young people. In addition to this report, our expert panel responds to questions parents have surrounding teens, sexting, sending, and sharing nudes.

We've also provided advice on how to talk about #BlackLivesMatter, online hate, and racism to have these important conversations with children and young people.
We would encourage you to share this with other parents and carers. If you have any feedback get in touch on our Facebook page @InternetMatters.
