A sexting literacy and prevention tool for adolescents from the The South West Grid for Learning in the UK.

This is a resource from ‘The South West Grid for Learning’ in the UK that I am recommending for parents who might want to address and discuss the pitfalls of sexting with their adolescents. The SouthWest Grid for Learning is a not for profit, charitable trust, funded by 15 Local Authorities (equivalent to Ontario Municipalities) across the South West of England. I have yet to find a Ontario or Canadian equivalent document.

This resource is very well done. Although the title is provocative, written in the colloquial vernacular of teenagers to be better able to reach them, the material itself is very good and deals with the subject matter in a mature and responsible manner addressing this all too real situation that so many adolescents face today.  It is a great tool for the parent or guardian that wishes to open a discussion on this most difficult, yet important, of topics with their adolescent son and daughter.  I hope you will find it helpful.
