Did You Give Your Kids Porn for Christmas?

Did You Give Your Kids Porn for Christmas?

Woah, hold on! Should this even be a question for any decent parent? You are correct, but many parents are giving their kids access to porn without knowing it. In fact, according to a 2010 survey from CovenantEyes, 93% of boys and 62% of girls will be exposed to internet pornography during childhood (those numbers are rising, by the way, not declining).

Do you know how many devices can now connect to the internet? Here is a list of current devices that kids can use to access the internet:

  • Desktops
  • Laptops
  • Smartphones
  • Tablets
  • Smart TVs
  • TV Appliances
  • E-Readers
  • Video game consoles

If your kids received one of these devices for Christmas, then you will probably want to consider two things:

1. Consider having conversations with your kids about porn and setting boundaries that prevent them from discovering it, either purposefully or accidentally. The reality is that most kids are not going to come to their parents with questions and concerns when they view explicit material. It is the responsibility of the parent to initiate those conversations with their children.

2. Consider purchasing a helpful program like Covenant Eyes, which helps you monitor what your kids are accessing on the internet. With Covenant Eyes, you can monitor the websites they visit on any device that can access the internet and set boundaries as desired. The program itself is very affordable as well.

It is all too easy for kids to find pornography on the internet. Are you actively seeking to keep your kids safe from the world of pornography?
