Because of Bark, we have found out concerning info about some of our son’s friends: 8th graders involved in sexting, sexual activity, and using pornhub. Although our son is not engaging in these activities (as far as we can tell), he is having conversations about them. We are wondering if we should reach out to the parents of the other kids to let them know, either vaguely or specifically, that some things are going on they may want to look into. In our state, sexting between minors has been considered a criminal activity due to the way the child pornography laws are worded, so in addition to the moral & developmental issues, there may actually be legal issues at play as well.
Has anyone encountered a similar situation? How did you handle it?
