We received an email from a parent who was deeply concerned about his primary age child’s experience viewing internet porn on a smart device. He had taken steps to block access, to put in parental controls and to talk to his child about it. Still the child is trying to access more sites and has spoken about an urge to do so. What do they do now to help their child out of this trap?
Porn exposure, and even addiction, is sadly a reality for younger and younger children. The average age of first exposure to violent internet porn is now 11 and the majority of exposure is happening in the family home.
