Teen sexting is on the rise and every year, many children become victims of it. Some are lured to send nude pictures that are then used for wrong purposes. Some end up being blackmailed for their nude selfies and this could lead to massive trauma in children. Tackling the growing incidences of teen sexting has become the need of the hour and FamiSafe is the app that has come to the rescue of too many worried parents.

Parents need to talk to kids about the perils of teen sexting and explain why they should steer away from it. Often it is the lack of right awareness and understanding that makes kids fall prey to it.

Here are a few things that parents should do to help their child battle sexting.
