Sexting & Cyber Blackmail = Child Abuse

Sexting.  If you’re not familiar with the word and what it is, you should be!

Wikepedia defines  Sexting as the act of sending sexually explicit messages and/or photographs, primarily between mobile phones.

And while most of us are aware of the problem of  “Cyber” or online bullying via Facebook and other social media sites, a new form of child abuse is beginning to arise:

Cyber-Blackmail

This form of child abuse is just beginning to come to light in both the USA and in the United Kingdom.

FosterParentTraining.com is in the process of preparing a new Training Topic dealing with the growing problem of  Sexting & Cyber Bullying.
