The Church recently released a new series of videos covering various aspects of dealing with pornography. Some of the videos discuss how to deal with issues that you are personally struggling with, others–like this one–are resources geared to help parents help their children. So, what is the best way to handle your child’s exposure to pornography?
When you discover your child has viewed pornography, be calm and provide unconditional love. Your child is already hurting and aching and just needs someone to talk to. Kids may initially want to run and hide, but you can remind them of the freedom that can be found with opening up and partaking of the Savior’s Atonement. Be gentle, meek, and loving as you extend your love and teach the doctrine of Christ.
