Resources for Pornography
- Be proactive. Start talking to your children while they are very young (ages 3-5), providing books that help them understand good images from bad images. When time comes for the pre-teen and teenagers find help for them using Theology of the Body for Teens as well as a new program called “Fight the New Drug”.
- Become Accountable: Place filters on all electronic devices, computers, iPads, iPods, cell phones, video game systems, MP3 players, etc. Use filtering that will block questionable sites. Be proactive in protecting your entire family. Monitor all social networking, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram , You Tube, etc. and block or screen movies and TV, using USCCB.org reviews of movies. The correct filters on electronic devices will prevent the unexpected pop-ups that can occur while searching the web.
- Educate Yourself: Learn more about the subject of pornography and sex-trafficking through the vast resources available to you. Provide information about pornography at your local and or diocesan CCW meetings yearly that address this silent but highly destructive subject. Show how prevalent pornography is in our homes and society, and how it is ensnaring our children, and spouses.
