According to the Telegraph article by Tim Ross sexting is a huge and growing problem which could lead to some girls committing suicide after suffering abuse. Mrs Perry, an adviser to the Prime Minister on the sexualisation and commercialisation of childhood, said increasing numbers of young boys were sending images of their genitalia to girls at school., which is considered to be the norm. However, cases such as that of 13 year old Chevonea Kendall-Bryan who fell to her death after begging a boy to delete footage of her performing a sexual act is not normal.
The report goes on to say that if adults were allowed to send these types of pictures of children to each other it would be a criminal offence but for children to swap these sexual images is quite acceptable. Parents are often kept out of the loop and have no idea sexting is an everyday occurrence happening on their child’s mobile or PC.
Private Investigators in Leeds are concerned about this endemic problem and give information about services that can monitor what a child is looking at and how they are communicating online. Parents are able to monitor their child’s mobile or PC using software that the child would not be aware of. The software can be downloaded in minutes and start reporting the information straight away. This will give parents and guardians the means to deal with the problem in a position of understanding and knowledge.
Ashlea Peters, spokesperson from Private Investigators in Leeds said:
“In my expert opinion this is a major problem for all involved. Technology is a great thing but it also has its downsides, such as sexting. It is a fairly recent problem and as phones and PC’s are becoming more affordable it needs to be controlled with parents, teachers and website providers taking more responsibility for the welfare of the children.”
