Dina Alexander || Arming Kids Against Pornography

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

"We have to continually have those conversations because it normalizes the idea of talking about tough topics."

Dina Alexander returned to the podcast to teach parents how to talk to our children about another hard topic: pornography.

We first discuss what Dina has researched are the trends in pornography, including the average age of exposure, what your children are "learning" from porn, and how they are targeted by the industry.  This information is essential to knowing better what our children are up against and HOW to better prepare them to make good decisions when they are faced with pornography (and the research shows, they will ALL be exposed to it at some point).

Dina then shares a variety of ways to open the dialogue with children, first by using proper sexual education and then by empowering our kids to know the truth behind the porn industry--what false messages they teach, how they use teens as a primary target.  We can then go into arming our kids to actively fight against the tides of culture and instead choose a life with healthy sexuality pursued at the right time.  And we can do all of this without using guilt and shame.

Ultimately, Dina teaches parents that the best thing we can do for our children is provide a family culture of open dialogue where no topics are off the table.  And in turn, the effects are children who are better empowered to stand up and live their values.
