“A disturbing number of children are being exposed to pornography without an understanding of how it can damage their young minds,” said Kristen A. Jenson and Gail A. Poyner, authors of the book Good Pictures Bad Pictures.
In a presentation at the 27th Annual National White Ribbon Against Pornography Week (Oct. 26 to Nov. 1, 2014), they said they feel strongly that the only way kids can stay safe in a digital world is to install their own internal filter. Since parents cannot monitor their kids’ digital exposure every minute, it is important to teach them how to respond when they see pornography.
They have developed a CAN DO plan (see graphic) to help children reject pornography when they first see it rather than become captivated with it.
To help parents prevent their children from becoming addicted to pornography, the presenters offered ten ways to immunize kids against pornography. Read about them in the article, “10 Ways to immunize kids against pornography” in the LDS Church News.
