According to KCBD 11, a Lubbock man is behind bars after admitting he had a sexually explicit relationship through text messages with an 11-year-old girl. The Parental Intelligence System uKnowKids, created by uKnow.com, wants to offer sexting resources and tips to residents of Lubbock, TX and surrounding areas so parents can better protect their children from sexting incidents.
uKnowKids has put together a resources page specifically for sexting. This page includes infographics, tip sheets, and blog entries about sexting prevention and other ways to keep children safe from predators online and on mobile phones. uKnowKids has also published a sexting prevention eBook entitled “Understanding Sexting: Nine Things Every Parent Should Know” that can be downloaded free by all parents. uKnowKids wants to make sure that the community of Lubbock can keep young residents safe and prevent another incident like this from happening --- with education comes prevention.
uKnow.com’s co-founder’s son had a scary incident stemming from an online and mobile phone encounter. Since that time, Tim Woda has made it his mission to educate himself about internet and mobile safety and spread the lessons he learned to as many parents as possible. He feels strongly that every parent should be aware of their child’s online and mobile activities so stories like his and so many others never have to happen again.
Tim offers these tips for parents to prevent sexting and the sharing of inappropriate pictures:
