Advice for parents about talking to your child about creating, sending or receiving explicit images.

Sharing nudes is when someone sends a naked or semi-naked image or video to another person. Sharing nudes is sometimes called ‘sexting’, however this term is often used by young people to talk about sharing sexual messages and not imagery.
