As much as we would like to bury our heads in the sand and pretend that pornography isn’t an issue, that’s simply not an option for deliberate mothers.
But there’s great news!
Teaching and protecting our children has never been more doable.
Listen to this powerful, inspiring podcast with Kristen Jenson, author of Good Pictures Bad Pictures, for specific ways to take action in your home today that will protect your children for a lifetime.
- You’ll hear about Kristen’s book–an illustrated children’s book that teaches children how to protect themselves from the addiction of pornography (I’m sure you’re wondering how on earth she wrote this–while keeping it totally appropriate for young children, but preparing them to counteract material that is anything but…)
- You’ll learn how to set up a media policy for your children (and hear what ages she recommends children be given access to internet devices)
- You’ll receive great information on why children need to be warned early about pornography
- And you’ll leave the podcast armed with really specific, really comfortable ways to start the conversation with your children.
This isn’t “just a podcast.” This is critical information that deliberate mothers everywhere need to hear. Please share this page with as many friends as you can. You just never know whose family you will help.
QUESTION: Do you have any other favorite books, links, or resources that have helped you to protect your children from pornography?
CHALLENGE: Make it a priority to listen to this podcast sometime in the next week, and then take five minutes to record your next steps to protect your own family.
