Social Media Dangers Exposed by Mom Posing as 11-Year-Old
A 37-year old mom goes undercover as an 11-year old girl to expose the dangers facing kids on social media platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok, and Kik. Left unsupervised, young children can be exposed to online predators, grooming, and psychological abuse within minutes. For more information please visit: https://info.bark.us/stonefish In 2018 alone, Bark alerted the FBI to 99 child predators. In 2019? That number is more than 300 — and counting. Each of these cases represents a real child experiencing real harm, and our challenge is to help parents and schools understand this new reality. But how do we tell stories without asking families to divulge too much? We started this project to explain online grooming to a generation who didn’t grow up with this danger. About Bark Bark helps families manage and protect their children’s digital lives. Our award-winning service monitors 30+ of the most popular apps and social media platforms for signs of issues like cyberbullying, suicidal ideation, online predators, threats of violence, and more. Our web filtering and screen time management tools empower families to set healthy limits around the websites and apps their kids can access and when they can visit them.

Protect Yourself Rules - Safe Touch / Unsafe Touch
Protect Yourself Rules - Grades K-3 Lesson 3 - Safe Touch / Unsafe Touch The nonprofit Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center Foundation in conjunction with Wonder Media has developed a national campaign on a child abuse awareness and prevention. The program’s main goal is to educate children about what to do when confronted with abusive behavior, safe and unsafe touches, going to a parent or another trusted adult if they are confronted in an unsafe situation, and that it is not their fault. An “Unsafe Touch” is defined as touching private parts of the body that are covered by a bathing suit. Stranger safety, Internet safety and other situations are also presented. The program has been developed and scripted by child advocates, therapists, and national scholars and tested at various stages of development with students, teachers, school administrators, parents, and experts in the field of child abuse.

Porn – A Mother’s Concern and Action | Stephanie Boye | TEDxCharleston
NOTE FROM TED: This talk contains commentary on pornographic content and only represents the speaker’s personal understanding of the pornography industry. Research on pornography has yielded mixed results, and certain claims in this talk have not been corroborated by sufficient evidence. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give TEDx organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf It was her initial desire to be a conscientious mother that led her to look into—and ultimately uncover—the disturbing landscape of modern pornography and its impact on teenagers. Since then, it has morphed into a passion project for Stephanie Boye to see that everyone becomes “porn literate” to fully grasp the manipulation pornography has on intimacy, love and sexual engagement. A creative director, former LA clothing designer and current sexual assault counselor, Stephanie Boye is pulling back the curtain on societal norms to address teenage sex, pornography and its impact on the mental and emotional wellbeing of adolescents everywhere. With a documentary on the way and podcast dedicated to her mission, Stephanie is also a wife and mother to three teenagers. Sexuality today is drastically different from when parents were teenagers. This sexual assault counselor declares a new reality for the mental and emotional wellbeing of adolescents. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Use It or Lose It: The Adolescent Brain
While we all know that 6th grade is a crucial time for a 12-year-old's physical and emotional growth, neuroscience tells us that there's a "use it or lose it" reality happening at the neural level, where brain cells and their connections either "sprout" or get "pruned." In this video from our 2013 Annual Report (http://www.expandedschools.org/2013-annual-report), we highlight the intersection of neuroscience and education, and how helping kids thrive in middle school is crucial to their success.

The great porn experiment | Gary Wilson | TEDxGlasgow
NOTE FROM TED: This talk contains several assertions that are not supported by academically respected studies in medicine and psychology. While some viewers might find advice provided in this talk to be helpful, please do not look to this talk for medical advice. In response to Philip Zimbardo's "The Demise of Guys?" TED talk, Gary Wilson asks whether our brains evolved to handle the hyperstimulation of today's Internet enticements. He also discusses the disturbing symptoms showing up in some heavy Internet users, the surprising reversal of those symptoms, and the science behind these 21st century phenomena. More About Gary Wilson Gary is host of www.yourbrainonporn.com. The site arose in response to a growing demand for solid scientific information by heavy Internet erotica users experiencing perplexing, unexpected effects: escalation to more extreme material, concentration difficulties, sexual performance problems, radical changes in sexual tastes, social anxiety, irritability, inability to stop, and obsessive-compulsive symptoms. As a physiology teacher with a particular interest in the latest neuroscience discoveries, Gary was aware that their symptoms might be the result of addiction-related brain changes. Applying the website's concepts of brain plasticity, many former users have braved withdrawal, reversed their symptoms and restored normal sexual responsiveness. The site has been linked to from hundreds of threads in forums from over thirty countries, with posts numbering in the thousands. Gary blogs for "Psychology Today" and "The Good Men Project" on the extreme plasticity of adolescent brains, the evolutionary context for today's flood of novel cyber "mates," and the neurochemical reasons why superstimulating Internet delivery has unexpected effects on the brain.

Why we need to talk about porn | Jo Robertson | TEDxChristchurch
Warning: This talk contains explicit verbal descriptions of aggressive pornography. With one in four children being exposed to online porn by the age of twelve or younger, it's critical we know what they're seeing—and it's critical we talk to them about it. Jo Robertson is a sex therapist who researches porn. In this gut-wrenching and unflinching talk, she explains the new porn landscape, the potential impacts on our kids, and how to get past the awkwardness and have the healthy conversations we need to have. Jo Robertson is the Research and Training Lead for The Light Project, a charitable trust equipping youth, whānau and professionals to navigate the new porn landscape. From an early age, Jo knew she wanted to serve people; she had a strong concern for those who felt no one was listening to them. This compelled her to train in social policy, counselling and sexual health, and to earn her Master’s of Science in sex therapy, with a focus on the consumption rates and impacts of porn on adolescents. After completing her education and training, Jo went on to work in trauma and abuse counselling roles with children and young people; she now works in private practice as a sex therapist, helping couples restore intimacy, or with problematic sexual behaviours. Jo is married to an exceptional man named Dave who runs a youth mentoring organisation, and has three young boys. Like all parents, she is very low on sleep, self-care and showers.
