Teens and Porn

January 28, 2012

I keep saying that it isn’t right to give children access to a computer, or even adults for that matter, that has no safeguards installed. At the bare minimum a computer should have an excellent filter program (K9). Just as my dog barks, your child(ren) will look at porn eventually if there are no safeguards. Given that filters aren’t foolproof, accountability software is better (Best: Covenant Eyes, Ok: X3 Watch, there is a free version here). If your children are more computer savvy than you, find someone with more expertise to help. If you don’t agree with my views in this area, here are some stats to motivate you to lock your machine down:

Need I say more? Only 3% of boys haven’t seen Internet porn. If you don’t help your child now, he or she will face an awful struggle the rest of his or her life. You might already be too late.

    Preach it brother! Another important statistic is that one in every four girls will be molested before age 16. I have 8 granddaughters! I don’t know the statistics for boys, but am certain that they would also give me nightmares. We do everything in our power to protect our children from drugs and the danger of that addiction–why be naive about addiction to pornography when it is equally destructive?

      Things regarding sex are so askew that I can’t imagine things getting straightened out. Our whole culture is pornified. It is inescapable. This is an exaggeration but almost everyone is both a victim and a perpetrator. People are first used and then they become users. I know cultures have been as decadent as ours but other than revival I can’t see a way out.
