The number of Irish teenagers sending nude photos of themselves has increased dramatically in recent years
The number of Irish teenagers sending nude photos of themselves has increased dramatically in recent years. It's a huge child protection issue.
The ISPCC have seen an increase in the number of calls in relation to the issue. Younger children just don’t understand the implications of when they share private information online. Alarmingly they are receiving calls from as young as 11 and 12 year olds.
A support website called ‘Watch Your Space’ released a short video showing how situations like this are escalated. It's a few years old, but the message is still clear. They offer support and advice. Watch it below. They have captioned with “Some things last forever... others don't"
Sharing nudes that could hurt or embarrass others causes real harm, damages reputations and changes lives FOREVER. It can also be a criminal offence. For more information and support go to: watchyourspace.ie/forever
