Sexual communication with a child is a criminal offence.
Make sure your child knows that adults who want to talk about sex are doing something wrong and should be reported.
We know this is a tactic that many offenders use to gain the trust of a young person quickly.
It’s much harder for your child to think critically about someone if they’re inundated with ‘likes’ or compliments about how sexy or talented they are.
Offenders use this as a way to exert control over a child, often becoming very nasty if a child doesn’t do what they say.
