The latest research indicates exposure to porn happens by age 8 (that’s 2nd grade!) It’s often unintentional, even accidental, but once seen it can never be unseen.
The physiological change which happens in the brain as a result of that first exposure fosters the desire to see more. The reality is even the most vigilant parent CANNOT prevent a porn infiltration indefinitely. Trying to delay it by blocking every portal where the sludge of porn can seep in, has little chance of success. There is just too much, and it’s too easily accessible.
If blocking and filtering aren’t enough, you might ask, then how can a responsible parent or caring adult equip youngsters to avoid porn? By training the brain to WANT something different, something better.
Positively Waiting is hosting four opportunities this summer to sample that exact training, and connect with resources that work. These seminars will be appropriate for both adults and teens (use discretion with younger children). Hopefully, at least one venue is near you!
