The most shocking part is how utterly normal this sort of revelation has become - as an internet safety expert, it's just another day at the office. I ensured she's referred to a paediatric sex addiction therapist, which unfortunately is now a necessary thing. She started watching porn on YouTube on a suggestion from a classmate, then progressed down the bottomless rabbit hole of YouTube's increasingly horrifying suggestions and eventually started seeking out even more egregious forms of sexualised content on sites like PornHub. It's one of the many chilling but all too common experiences I've had in recent years, while looking into the gutter world of social media. In another haunting encounter, after I gave a student presentation on online safety, a Year 6 girl asked to speak with me privately. A year-old man had sent her nude photos of himself via TikTok and was asking her to reciprocate. After law enforcement determined the identity and location of the man - he was 1, miles away - local officers were dispatched to arrest him. These are just two of many hundreds to horror stories I've heard, and it's why I support The Sun's effort to educate parents.

A Queensland tradesman who asked a pre-teen girl for nude photos as a birthday present had only celebrated the birth of his first child three months earlier. Jamie Robert Lanskey, 31, avoided jail for grooming a year-old girl online, despite his interactions being described at Cairns District Court as 'sexual and disgusting'. The apprentice electrician tracked down his victim on Facebook messenger where he lied about his age to try and get naked photographs, The Cairns Post reported. The apprentice electrician originally tracked down his victim on Facebook messenger where he lied about his age to try and get naked photographs and engage in sexually explicit conversations stock image. Lanskey told his victim he was 21 years old when they began talking in March Within three days of the conversation the victim's parents discovered the messages and reported the incident to police. But it took almost a year before any charges could be laid as officers sought to uncover whether any other children had been targeted. Lanskey faced Cairns District Court this week where he was given a suspended 18 month jail sentence. Crown prosecutor Jodie Crane told the court Lanskey asked the girl why he 'didn't get my present' when she refused to send him naked photos.
