But the latest techno-defense IS NOT ENOUGH.
Tomorrow someone will find a way to hack that new software. Next week there will be a new digi-toy that has a backdoor no one spotted. You will make yourself crazy if your only objective is to be so vigilant that nothing can get in. You have to TRY to keep it out, but that can't be the GOAL.
The true objective has to be
Your parenting has to give them a reason big enough NOT to engage in the sexual gratification porn provides, not to listen to the lies that it "doesn't hurt anybody" or that it can "improve" your relationship.
There are no shortcuts to that objective. None.
The only way to keep your child from being sucked into the world of porn -- which leads to dissatisfaction, poor relationships, breakups and serial dating, lower motivation to achieve life goals, poor communication skills, etc. -- is to teach them NOT TO USE PEOPLE.
It's takes time, effort and consistency. There's no magic pill. There's no 10-step program. There's no app. It's just day in and day out CHOOSING not to use people, even though they want to.
I really do empathize with parents who pay good money for the best internet blocking software. Parents who monitor what their children see, do or hear. I'm awed by the vigilance it takes to stay on top of the technology. It looks really hard!
But, please hear the gentle caring heart behind this: if that's ALL you do,you're just making yourself feel better. You're not preparing your child to defend themselves when you're not around.
They may be safe in the fortress of your home, but they are naked and vulnerable when they go out in the Big Bad World. Character is the only impenetrable mobile armor.
