As soon as I read this tweet following a recent news report on a 12 year old being sexually harassed, I felt a lump in my throat. I couldn’t agree yet I couldn’t disagree. Parenting is a balancing act, just that at times we do not know how to balance it right. Not just in the real world, a plethora of social media platforms have raised the stress levels of the new age parent. Is it okay to let my child WhatsApp her friends? Should I go through my son or daughter’s facebook friends list? Is it okay if my teenager posts photos on Instagram?
With a rise in social media platforms and dating apps, intruders are finding new ways to honey trap people. Sextortion is one such cyber crime that blackmails victims with sexual information or photos to extort sexual or monetary favours. Though men have been the most common victim so far, ConnectSafely.org (a Silicon Valley, Calif.-based nonprofit organization dedicated to educating users of connected technology about safety, privacy and security) has published safety tips and precautions and advice to parents with regards to sexting and sextortion.
Kids and teenagers are often reluctant to share sexting and sextortion issues with any elders they trust because of fear, guilt and confusion. They fear being judged, criticized, disciplined, punished or worse, being marginalized by their peers.

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
As long as teachers are competent in their job, and adhere to the workplace code of conduct, how does it matter what they do in their personal lives?
A 30 year old Associate Professor at a well-known University, according to an FIR filed by her, was forced to resign because the father of one of her students complained that he found his son looking at photographs of her, which according to him were “objectionable” and “bordering on nudity”.
