Nude Selfies What parents and carers need to know


Could you chat to your children about the risks of sharing revealing selfies?

With the rise of the selfie has come growing concern about young people taking and sharing 
revealing photos or videos – you’ve probably seen this referred to in the media as ‘sexting’.
This is risky behaviour for anyone, but especially for young people.

As a parent, there’s plenty you can do.

Take the time to watch the new Thinkuknow short films Nude Selfies: What Parents and 
Carers Need to Know. They’re packed with information and advice on helping your child 
avoid taking risks online, how to know what’s safe and what’s not, and where to get help 
if anything goes wrong.

Remember, if you have any concerns about a child being sexually abused or exploited 
you can report them using the ClickCEOP button on this page.
