‘Pornography has changed the landscape of adolescence beyond all recognition. (Daily Telegraph, 22 April 2015). CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) tells us that nowadays most teenagers (and many younger children) have watched pornography, seen it without wanting to, or been affected by it indirectly. The Naked Truth is an organisation which gives parental guidance on phones, filters and digital dangers. Following the popular parenting course ‘Parentalk’ that is taking place at Cherwell this term, there will be an evening workshop on Tuesday March 28th to help parents and carers tackle and talk about the issue of pornography and internet safety presented by the Naked Truth Project. The workshop is open to all parents and carers from Cherwell school and Wolvercote and Cutteslowe Primary Schools . As well as equipping us to support children who are exposed to pornography they will also teach us practical ways to keep our youngsters safe online generally. This is not an event that is appropriate for children to attend.
