Protecting Your Children From Pornography

by Unknown

  1. Ensure the computer is in a public, high-traffic area. Password the computer so the children can only use it when other people are around.
  2. Do not allow your children to have a computer in their rooms; do not allow them to have their own televisions.
  3. Let your children know that you will be monitoring what they see, do and say on the computer, and that they will not be able to view pornography without you knowing. Be sure you know how to look through a computer's history to see what your children have been looking at.
  4. Be especially careful with sites like Google Video and YouTube. It is a small step from videos of girls kissing and other exploitative videos to pornography.
  5. Teach your children about real sex, and about pure sex, and about God's plan and desire for sex. Talk to them about pornography, not leaving it as "pornography is filthy and disgusting," but discussing why they might be interested in it, what it will do to them, and how they should react when (not "if") they are exposed to it.
  6. Model purity and love and respect in your own marriage. Pray for them and their future spouse.
