Preparing Mothers to Protect Their Children from Pornography


smartphone-720684_1280
Last week I had the privilege of teaching a room full of mothers about how to protect their children from pornography. Included in their handouts was the following article I wrote, generously made available through the MOPS Blog. I hope you find it both helpful and hopeful. Here it is:

Dangerous Access: Protecting Children from the Path of Pornography

It begins like this:

“Pornography affects us all. Maybe you’re in a relationship with someone who views it or struggle with pornography yourself. Maybe you have friends or family members impacted by it. We are all at risk of pornography exposure, especially the most vulnerable among us; our children. Pornography is ever-present in our world and, as caring parents, we must pay attention.”
