However, the pain has been sent to make us stronger, and to Love one another better! — Anonymous TeenTyme Essay Winner
In today’s world there are still many forms of bullying occurring in the middle of a worldwide, COVID-19, pandemic and isolation. Stacey Spencer, Keynote Speaker, National Youth Specialist and motivator is available to share a “Message of Hope” with some simple reminders for parents and teens, in order to get through these tough times without a lot of emotional trauma and keeping our teens safe.
In an interview Stacey can expound upon the following:
Part I: The 5 major forms of bullying with examples: cyber-bullying, physical taunting, verbal abuse, emotional, and psychological
Part II: A major form of bullying is cyber-bullying. “Sexting” potential lure of bullying after you POST!
Three things to consider before pressing “SEND”
A) Privacy: Do not assume anything you send or post is going to stay private. Cyberspace has millions & millions of clients and predators.
B) Peer Pressure: Do not give into peer pressure to belong to an infinite community of predators & traffickers… nothing in cyberspace is sacred!
C) Recipients Reaction: Consider your recipients reactions. Everyone is NOT sexting,
and some folks may find this behavior truly offensive…
The Legal Heat:
1. Sexting is considered a major contributor to child pornography.
2. Federal law prohibits the exploitation of a minor through recording, photographing, filming, developing or even distributing material that contains a visual representation depicting a minor involved in sexual activity. Felonies are endless for such a heinous act.
