New Intimate Image Laws

We have received an information update from the WA Government Department of Justice with regards to the new Intimate Image Laws, which came into effect on 15 April. This is an important issue for adolescents and their use of technology. If you would like more information about this issue, please click here. It is a timely reminder of the serious consequences that are attached to the misuse of digital technology and images. Parents, if you can initiate a discussion with your son on this issue, then it can help him to be aware of the pitfalls and hopefully ensure that any decisions he makes about the use of his phone, and associated images, is informed.
