Adults need information about the multiple kinds of digital risks for children today and practical strategies to keep children safe. Children ages 10-17 experience online sexual solicitation at a rate of 12% for boys and 27% for girls. Most adolescents, 68% in the U.S., have unintentionally encountered pornography online. The prevalence of sexting among youth, sending explicit texts, is 15% and for receiving is 27% (with consent) and 12% and 8% respectively without consent. These numbers are expected to climb during this unprecedented time of access to online technology while children and youth are at home.
