Online Relationships

Step 1Class discussion with students
  • How do teens in relationships communicate digitally? Do people in relationships communicate differently online than face-to-face? How so?
  • How do online interactions affect relationships positively and negatively? Create a T-Chart to compare.
  • Define self-disclosure. Why do we confide personal information in relationships? What purpose does it have in our own lives? What are some dangers of self-disclosing to someone online?
  • Define sexting. What are different forms of sexting (e.g. messages or pictures)? What are different reasons teens send sexts (e.g. they are bored, or they are flirting)? What are some risks to sexting? Is there ever a scenario when you can sext risk free? If so, what?
  • In today’s society, it is common for people to meet online. How has meeting people this way evolved from the beginning of the Internet? What are some ways we interact with strangers online today (e.g. buying or selling privately)?
  • How do you know if it is safe to build a relationship with someone, romantic or otherwise, online? What are some warning signs that it could be risky? Read WEBSAFE - How To Avoid Internet Predators to help.

Step 3Concluding discussion with students
  • Having thought about and discussed the risks, do you think sexting should be illegal?
  • In today’s society, avoiding the digital world or communicating with people online is not realistic. What can we do to protect ourselves?
