Keeping Our Children and Youth Safe Online

Over the last few years, there has been a significant increase in the number of reported cases of young people involved in self/peer exploitation.  This is generally defined as youth creating, sending or sharing sexual images and/or videos with peers via the Internet and/or electronic devise.   The Board recently purchased a resource for every elementary and secondary school called Self/Peer Exploitation, School and Family Approaches to Intervention and Prevention. The resource was created by the Canadian Centre for Child Protection, which is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to promoting safety of all children.  Principals and Vice Principals also received an in-service on the guide.  The guide will be distributed to all grade 9 and 10 students to be able to bring home as information. The following two links may assist youth and families who have been impacted by child sexual exploitation: Cybertip.ca may be used to report child sexual exploitation, NeedHelpNow.ca is a website that offers find some practical information for youth on how to deal with this (for example, how to get pictures removed from the internet, how to deal with peers, how to talk with someone, etc.). Please consider using this information to talk to your child(ren) about internet safety.  The Canadian Centre for Child Protection also produces several useful resources for parents that may be found using the following links:  https://www.cybertip.ca/pdfs/C3P_SafetySheet_SelfPeerExploitation_en.pdf         https://www.cybertip.ca/pdfs/C3P_SafetySheet_Cyberbullying_en.pdf
