A survey revealed that 1 in 5 teens have received an unwanted online request to engage in sexual activities or provide sexual information. One in four teens have been exposed to online pornography.
Two-thirds of Utah households have a computer, which is more than any other state in the United States. Almost half of the homes in Utah have internet access.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF:
- Someone in my home receives an email or file that contains child pornography?
- My child has been sexually solicited by someone who knows that my child is under 18?
- My child has received sexually explicit messages from someone who knows that my child is under 18?
In all instances, do not attempt to copy or forward any of the images or messages on your computer. Turn the monitor off and keep the computer on to preserve the evidence.
