Every young person should know what makes a happy, healthy respectful relationship. Every young person should have the opportunity to consider their choices around relationships, dating, sexting, pornography and sex. Our hope is that we can provide an opportunity for every young person to do this.

THE PRICE OF TECHNOLOGY

More and more technology is becoming a part of our lives and our culture. It has significantly impacted our homes, our classrooms, and the lives of young people. While the internet has provided many beneficial changes, it has also created some concerns when it comes to the safety of young people.

The latest statistics from online parental control expert’s, Family Zone, showed that:

  • 45% of teens are using unsafe social media.
  • Teenagers are spending close to 3 hours a day on social media sites.
  • 90% of boys and 60% of girls have visited porn sites.
  • 70% of girls between the ages of 15 and 19 receive online harassment and bullying.

The Australian Medical Association says that there’s a strong link between online pornography and adverse sexual and mental outcomes.

Teachers and Parents play a crucial role in helping young people engage with the online space in a positive way. With education and conversation, young people have the ability to make fantastic choices as they engage in the digital space. Our hope is that as we partner with your school community we can open discussions, provide answers and change culture.
