Resources for Parents


Pornography fuels sex trafficking. A common justification for not protecting kids from pornography is “Well, I found my dad’s Playboy when I was a kid, and it’s really no different.”  This comparison could not be further from the truth. The type of porn children and teens have access to today is graphic and violent video of sexual acts, not just nude photos. This has a much more negative impact on their development. We recommend all parents take action to protect their children from porn. The following is a short list of resources to help. We are not affiliated with any of the following. Please share with us what works best for your family!

Sexting: Are your kids doing it?
(The following is an excerpt from “Net Cetera”
Sending or forwarding sexually explicit photos, videos, or messages from a mobile device is known as “sexting.” Tell your kids not to do it. In addition to risking their reputation and their friendships, they could be breaking the law if they create, forward, or even save this kind of message. Teens may be less likely to make bad choices if they know the consequences.
