Experiment that convinced me online porn is the most pernicious threat facing children today: By ex-lads' mag editor MARTIN DAUBNEY
I read this on a facebook post, and had to finish the article. Having three boys myself (and yes...I know it is not just a boy issue)...but something really hit me. I always thought that porn was a issue that we were going to deal with later on...like when the boys are 16...but not so. I found that after reading the article I went directly online to find ways that I could keep them safe as they navigate our online world. I really like what these two sites had to say..and how we do control what happens in our homes.
He ends the article with this (and I agree with him):
Like many parents, I fear that my boy's childhood could be taken away by pornography. So we have to fight back.
We need to get tech-savvy, and as toe-curling as it seems, we are the first generation that will have to talk to our children about porn.
We have to tell our kids that pornographic sex is fake and real sex is about love, not lust.
By talking to them, they stand a chance. If we stick our head in the sand, we are fooling only ourselves.
