With smartphones and tablets everywhere, we are all engaged in one of the most incredible social experiments ever conceived in the history of mankind. Within this alarming experiment, our kids are becoming entrenched in an increasingly pornified culture. Pornography use among kids is now a major public health issue due to its far-reaching effects.
Because exposure to pornography is inevitable, it is necessary to prepare our kids for that exposure. Porn's addictive nature, the way it can alter a child's developing brain, and how it will affect all of their future relationships make these discussions vital to a child's healthy sexual development. Our kids must be warned of its dangers as well as educated about the hateful nature of pornography, where women are usually the targets or victims of objectification, violence, degradation, and humiliation. All of these are discussions are part of a responsible education of internet safety.
We have provided critical information and great discussion questions that will foster productive and meaningful conversations between you and your kids. These discussions include: Building a Foundation of Trust, Creating a Hope of Openness, Defining Pornography, An Industry Targeting Kids, Pornography Conditions the Brain, and much more
Look at these discussions as an opportunity to connect. As you become more comfortable and gain confidence in discussing these tough topics, your kids will be able to ask you deeper questions and share more personal thoughts and experiences with you.
