Think porn is harmless? Think again

When I grew up, there was no such thing as the Internet.  Teens and pre-teens of today know no other world than a world with the Internet. 



Parents these days are putting their head in the sand regarding the pornography that their kids can access, if the proper controls are not in place.  They give them smart phones with unfettered internet access.  They do not put controls on their household computers.  They let them have laptops and gaming systems in the rooms, where they can surf the internet in private.

Pornography can have a very harmful effect on kids and their perceptions of sexuality and intimacy.  Pornography addiction in pre-teens and teens is a real issue.

Put controls on your computers and gaming systems.  Don't let kids have access in their rooms.  Have some oversight when kids are using a computer or any other devise that provides internet access.

You can do it if you just put a little effort into it.  Also, educate your children on the harmful effects of pornography.  Ask questions.  If you child goes to a friend's house to visit or stay the night, you have the right (and should) talk to the parents of the other kid about what Internet access they have in their home and what controls are in place.

Most of this is just common sense and good parenting.
