I will take it when we get a piece of good news in the battle to protect our children.

After pressure from Morality in Media about their involvement in pornography, Google sent a notice out to its advertisers announcing its new policy to no longer accept ads that depict graphic sex acts, or link to sites that contain these.

Check out Dawn Hawkins’ article Victory: Google Makes Huge Move to Ban Pornography, and then take just a moment to click the link to thank Google.

Do I Need to Have the Porn Talk?

Your Christian teen could be addicted to porn, and you would not know it. 

It only takes one exposure to set the hook, and he or she (yes, girls too) just can’t stop going back for more and more and more.

Porn is just a click away on your teen’s computer, tablet or smartphone.  It has never been easier for the enemy to ensnare our children in this ungodly and destructive habit.  

This is my fourth year of touring and speaking  to parents at ATF  conferences. A number of Christian parents have come up to speak to me about their own teen’s porn use.  But  only a small percentage of those whose teens are actually using porn have discovered it.  Why?   There are signs, but most parents miss them.

Take a minute to look at Jessica Harris’s article, 5 Signs Your Son or Daughter Might Be Struggling with Porn, and educate yourself.

You might be surprised at some of the unexpected signs of teen porn use.  And while you’re there, subscribe to Covenant Eyes’ Breaking Free Blog so you don’t miss any future posts.  It is an excellent resource for Christian parents who want to remain vigilant in the battle for their children.
