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
