Did you know that 1 in 5 young people in New Zealand have been asked to send a nude image? This pressure and expectation on our teenagers to send this content can be extremely damaging to their mental health and safety if shared. To prevent your child from sending nudes; talk to them about the risks of sharing personal information and sexual images and what can happen to those photos or videos once created and shared.

Have you established safety rules for your child around social media? As well as the age limits and regulations, it is important to discuss the unspoken expectations of social media like the pressure to share. Kids constantly feel pressure to share pictures and other details about their lives. Have a positive conversation about the value of privacy to help relieve them of that pressure. For more tips and advice about healthy guidelines for kids and social media please visit our website: https://pmgt.org.nz/online-safety/#Social-media

If you arrive home and you think there has been a burglary, dont go in. An intruder might still be inside. Go to a neighbours and telephone the Police. You should make a safety plan with your household to prepare for intruder situations, consider these points;
- Whether you are alone or if there are children or other adults present in the home.
- The internal layout of your home for access to any children and escape routes.
- Proximity to neighbours and boundary features of your property.
- An agreement with your neighbours on how they will respond.
- Using an existing room as a safe area, which must have a telephone installed, window security, and a door able to be securely locked from the inside.For more advice about household safety, please visit our website: https://pmgt.org.nz/home-safety/#Keep-the-burglars-outThank you to Able Whiteware Services Ltd, Tennent Brown Architects and https://www.portercontractors.co.nz/ for sponsoring our organisation!

It probably is a good idea to use an existing room as a safe area, rather than using an imaginary room.

We are happy to help Police Managers Guild Trust in keeping people informed and helping the community

One of the things that can make it difficult to recover from sexual abuse or sexual assault, is that the world is full of things that remind us of those experiences so the wound keeps getting opened, but not in ways that help to clear it up.
Spend time with people you like and trust and talk about what support you may need. Even if you dont feel like talking, people that you trust can distract you and accompany you in doing activities or restorative sessions.

talk to them about anything, build their trust and let them open up to you. Just keep reminding them that you are there.

There are situational danger signs you can look out for if you think your teenager is struggling with specific events or experiences. Your teenager may be experiencing academic pressures, fear of failure, conflict between cultural misunderstandings, sense of identity and place in the world, bullying, constant put-downs and criticism, dependence on alcohol, substance abuse. This is alot to deal with all at once, so let your teenager know that there are many ways to handle anxiety and depression, let them know you can talk to them and if they dont feel comfortable talking to you, you can help them find a counsellor to talk to.
