Youth Attitudes on Sending Nudes
Sending nudes has become the norm among youth today. This revelation should be no surprise. The everchanging tides of how youth communicate and have relationships has become inextricably linked to technology. It has also become clear that youth need to be made aware of what could happen when they share explicit images of themselves, also known as self-generated child sexual abuse materials (SG-CSAM). It is important to note that scare tactics don’t work. It is also important to note that shaming is harmful, especially if that image is reshared without consent.
