Book Review: Stand Up to Sexting: An Open Conversation to Parents and Tweens by Christy Monson & Heather Boynton is a book that will help parents to start talking about sexting.
A short overview of this book
Stand Up to Sexting: An Open Conversation to Parents and Tweens by Christy Monson & Heather Boynton is a great book for starting shame-free conversations with your tween about sexting.
It is the sort of book all parents should consider reading with their tween as they start Middle School (or High School), and definitely before you buy them their first phone and/or let them start using social media.
What I like about this book, is that you can work through the book with your child (chapter by chapter).
Chapter topics include:
- What is Sexting?
- Sexting and the Brain
- Your Digital Footprints
- What to Do if You Feel Pressured to Sext
- Boyfriends and Girlfriends
- How to Avoid Being a Victim of a Sexting Bully
- Staying Safe from Predators
- Using the Internet for Good
- and much more!
It also uses lots of relatable stories to illustrate the different lessons, and facilitates discussion by providing questions that encourage your child to think about what they could do if they were in that situation.
All in all, I really like this book and I think parents will find it very helpful in starting essential conversations about sexting.
