What is Sexting?

Sexting is when someone sends sexually explicit pictures of themselves or others via a mobile phone, email or the web.

Young people often refer to these images as ‘nudes’. 

These pictures can include sexual, naked or semi-naked images or videos of themselves or others, or sending sexually explicitly-worded messages.

These messages or pictures can be sent using mobiles, tablets, smartphones, laptops – any device that allows you to share media and messages.

Parents and carers, as well as young people, can feel excited, anxious, worried and / or disappointed when Leaving Cert results time arrives. 

It can be difficult to know how to provide support, but help is available for all. 

There are some steps you can follow to help your child through this challenging time:

Choosing a suitable creche or preschool

There are a few simple steps parents, guardians and carers can follow to help them choose the most suitable childcare for their child. 


When considering a creche or preschool

  • Arrange a visit - dropping in unannounced will help give you a sense of whether everything is as it should be. Mealtimes may be a good time to drop in, if possible, as you may then have an opportunity to check the standard of food which may be served to your child
