Focus on Family: Porn a dangerous temptation

1 Comment | Leave a Comment


Q I was looking on my teenage son’s computer and noticed that he’s been looking at porn sites. I’m a single mom and just don’t know what to do. I’ve talked with him about how damaging it is for him to look at these things and he continues to do so. How can I help him understand?

A Many teen boys and girls are caught up in Internet porn. I know it feels awkward as a mom to talk to your son about sexual issues. But it’s a discomfort you have to push past for his sake.


Begin by validating the fact that it’s normal for him to struggle. However, when his sex drive is channeled into casual sex or porn, it’s harmful to him and others. There’s a lot of shame associated with porn and teen sexuality. Don’t pile on more. However, he needs to understand that porn is poisonous and evil. I recommend that you teach your son to play both “defense” and “offense.” Insist that his computer and other devices have accountability and filtering software such as Safe Eyes or Bsecure.

Oh wow!

AHAHAHAHA, This paper does more and more to entertain me everyday. PORN IS EVIL!! That is hilarious. And since no names are mentions as authors or the questioner, the whole paper is at fault here. Every single one of you that work at this joke of a periodical. So porn is evil and poisonous, but all of those child molesting priests that have never seen any porn are what??? I'm sure that whoever wrote this crap is certain that gay marriage is evil as well. And it will get you eternity in the lake of fire! Dailt Reflector, you continue to make yourselves look as dumb as possible and Lynsey Horn ain't even in on this one! Who wrote this column?????
