What is the right age to start talking to kids about pornography? Listen and find out!

 

Marilyn loves to go hiking in the Rocky Mountains with her family. But every time they go, her husband gives them the “snake talk,” warning them about the venomous snakes lurking in the woods and sunning themselves on the big rocks. So how does this tie in with pornography? If your tablet had rattlesnakes in it, would you hand it to your kids without telling them about the rattlesnakes? For that matter … What is the right age to start having these difficult talks with our kids?

 

WHEN should we start talking to our kids about pornography?

 

TALK YESTERDAY. If possible, prep your kids before they face the “rattlesnakes.”

 

Check out Fortify, a program specifically designed to help teens and adults reach long-lasting freedom from pornography. (Free for teens!)

 

TALK TODAY. Start where you are NOW and go from there.

 

TALK "TOMORROW." Just keep talking!

 

CHALLENGE: This week we want you to ponder on this question: “How is pornography like a rattlesnake?” Share your answers in the Comments, tell a friend what you learned, or share the podcast.
