Yes, Your Young Children Will See Pornography (Upcoming Seminar for Parents)


Boy Laptop

One of my missions is to educate and equip parents about how to protect their children from pornography. After a recent seminar in late September, one mother’s response reaffirmed why this information is so relevant and vital for all parents:

“Just wanted to say thank you for this night, this topic, this information. On Forest’s recommendation, we bought the book “Good Pictures, Bad Pictures,” read it with our kids, and learned that at 9 (daughter) and 7 (son), our kids have both already viewed pornographic images. This allowed us to have a discussion we would not have even thought to have! Thank you!”

Having researched this topic for years, this is not a surprise to me. The average age of exposure to pornography has dropped to 9 years of age. This is especially disturbing when we look at how pornography impacts the brain.

If this story touches you, I hope you will consider attending my upcoming free seminar on October 18th at Action Community Church (101 Sunnyside in Clovis) from 6-8pm as we explore the “Dangerous Access” our kids have to pornography and what we can do about it (adults only please). If you are not local, check out our resource page for Parents. Please share!
