Average which borders. Begin your love and by the turn of the century is under 17 verse 26, 257 more time on adult porn sites did against thanks for joining us this week or family policy matters. Tracy did that Greeks director of communications in this week for NC family Pres. John Weston to be discussing an increasingly important topic for parents and educators today.

Strategies for battling pornography in our homes and classrooms are guest today is Dr. Thomas Laconia, a developmental psychologist and professor of education at the State University of New York at Cortland where he serves as director of the Center for the fourth and fifth ours, which stand for respect and responsibility. Dr. Laconia has spent his career helping families and schools foster good character in young people through writing and speaking to teachers, parents, religious educators, and other groups concerned about the character development of young people around the world.

Parents please be aware that portions of today's program may not be suitable for younger ears. Dr. Laconia, welcome to family policy matters router. First of all how big of a problem is pornography use among our students. Is it really something we need to worry about in elementary and middle school will warm waters explode where reality is churches are almost 100% the children to be exposed accidentally or deliberately.

The average which borders the United States. The good news and appropriate love and by the turn-of-the-century is under 17 were spending 64% more time on adult porn Internet, supposedly due to James 410 pornographic site will girls particular stores slowly more dramatically compelling. For example, one scriptural boy was blessed by his foster sister which began a premature interest in sex is a preaching stored within an appropriate wasn't until he was 17 that his parents found out that you lusting his younger sibling siblings four years as per our prediction, so even if the overage is that the average of 11 kids can get pulled into this terrible problem this terrible stuff to look at what we know about how pornography exposure and use affects the psychological and emotional development of children and adolescents both in the short term, and in the long term will work through distorted picture of humans, which routed which current distorts the normal sexual development of young people, consumer pornography, deviant, and abuse of sex is the norm one-sided. For example, of the most popular pornographic videos from 9/10 seems it would be verbally humiliated. The greatest various ways, humiliated and always the victim was made to seem not to mind Ruben to look happy about actual interviews of people who've quit the program threatened or terminated various ways a person who is pornography use of sexual delivery distorted relationship you have on your website actually interview with Michelle tell all of the president of the American College of surgeons cited to very important norm research review that they released in October 2015, titled the impact of progress for young children to secure the findings that the American College of pediatricians highlighted.

Children exposed to pornography. For example, more likely to sexually assault their peers in young people with consultant partners is linked to increased risk of depression, anxiety about early sexual activity and social problems. Higher rates of teen pregnancy, teenage sex thing has been linked with using private college students who viewed promptly part of material for six weeks became more interested in extreme forms considered very pleasant crime more accepting of sexual infidelity expressed, decreased interest in getting married or having children in studies of brains and how they are affected by private consumption show that the reduced brain volume lower functional conductivity and neural changes that are sequential workflows and embrace a person's difficult cocaine, alcohol, or horror for Beth and the press will most interesting recent reviews of the research looked at the global impact upon our and organelle global trends were similar across cultures with more frequency is consumer store like you are to be preoccupied with sex more likely to improve early sexual activity more likely we are to view women as sex objects for girls to do themselves as such subjects. Boys tend to worry that they might not build performance amendment films do girls reportedly physically impaired woman in the more teams consume preferably more likely we are to engage in other problematic so all kinds of effects documented in a cross-cultural it's very sad to think that young children might have their view of the opposite sex and sex and marriage in general, swayed by just some accidental exposures to pornography.

So if that's the case, when should parents begin talking about this topic with their children so that they all feel prepared to deal with the unforeseen exposure to pornography.

Well, the earlier the better. Many parents feel one way or not. At least if you value children is just want to protect them from the worst things are out there in the world and what you talking about the really awful stuff like pornography. If you have the courage of these thoughts about seven or eight or nine might hold off on discussing progress. Jos 1213. Her early teens were really that runs with roasted your children are going to be exposed to it by pure or action going on the Internet and then you will be coming in reactively instead of proactively.

So I really strongly recommend parents a book which your website has preclinical good pictures. Pictures for improving today's young kids by Kristin Jensen and Gil pointer is very gentle very tasteful very concrete very helpful book which I think frankly every parent should make use of speech was listening to policy matters of resource to listen to our radio show online, and someone resources that will be a voice of persuasion in US community to our website NC Dr. laconic. What is the importance of teaching students to think critically, specifically about media and what can parents and teachers do to help students with that larger shown sure is to really learn. When a bigger project with quotient score. The family setting, which is where the right uses of media reviews. Positive way. Build good habits, positive future out of we avoid using negatively. The first thing is to just ask. Okay this is really good for me or preferably is producing at one of the messages and in the second question is, what were the effects on the water. My current media habits of the sexes personnel becoming my values by police. My attitudes, my character how I spent my time to make me a better person or not to make whatever changes are needed in that context. So really parents the broad approach to regulating the beauty of family law cases were not merely proactive enough so I encourage precious at the end I go across a very big concert. The use of the media and our family is a privilege not a right. That privilege must be exercised with the approval and permission of parents.

In a way that's consistent with her family values.

So for any particular TV show, movie magazine music CD videogame Internet site social media. The question is it consistent with what we value employee was a family that you work out, media contact is a filming agreement that will regulate how to use a video hall that would certainly include something about pornography would explain their fear blocking using in its range, but that the most important control is your child's conscience because kids were digitally savvy they want to get around things report that blocks we can figure a way to do it suite we we say we done this to just as a caution and to help but really the most important regulation is conscience. So you try to create a partnership really parents and children working together to create a certain family culture which includes a sense of mission become a family want to be that in turn includes how use media to help with the fulfillment of that. Not to undermine so what schools, what can schools do to try to help protect students from pornography exposure while parents and teachers need to be articulate in giving kids for very specific reasons to avoid letting this since there hearts monitor souls and reliable for parents and teachers was conservative because reasons you can choose from wrong according to your your moral beliefs or religious convictions of Joseph everybody is the usual 70s reasons with their whiskers people a sense of how to how to articulate the reasons not to become involved in this. Many times adults stumble in this area find it difficult to find were societies from the first reason is that private retreats people as objects to be used as respect every person is to get to the bench respect. Second is that social and this is meant to express love between people porn separates or tomorrow because of her full spectrum from Church Road 30s with the body stores everything once you have these images in may be very difficult or impossible to get rid of them.

Even if you want to fourth reason is that private changes the brain.

Just like a drug can quickly become addictive take over your life.

For several boys and men, would be accompanied by another good habit, masturbation, something that's also hard to break both the privacy masturbation will reduce your self-control and reduce commercial respect.

If you carry either or both of these absent marriage that can cause problems between thousands of lives followed from a faith perspective. Mrs. how does this relate to God's plan for the gift or sexuality. So those are some very specific reasons that taken together, helping impression, resist the temptation to have a solid basis for making the right decision so what parents do what he teachers do they discover that their child or their student has been mired in this habit of pornography. What are some steps they can take 10 get out of that wall. We need to listen for so-called lead to what happened.

Effects of matter maven accidental exposure to department guru produces going on really efficient just to find out how it came about and then to explain lovingly but clearly why are you seriously wrong for the reasons described in and then how to avoid it in the future you work at a specific plan summary shows this to what you say way some kids that they have anxiety or distrust or anger or combination of emotions as result of their involvement. They now have the least positive plan for going forward legislation a couple of the resources of family and hopefully would love that. Thinking of one is the website porn proof porn proof that website is created by the two alteration of the book called good perjury.
