Children, Youth & Porn

Pornography is now available to children and youth at younger ages and in more forms than imaginable. In order to protect kids, prevention and education are crucial! If children aren't taught about healthy bodies, behavior and development, it is difficult for them to identify when content is harmful or inappropriate. Talking about this topic is hard! That's why we gathered these resources to help. Please reference our Sexual Abuse Supports, Technology, and Teens & Tweens pages for more resources.

"Discussing harmful internet content with your child is strongly recommended as early as elementary school. The average age of kids accessing porn is now 8 years old." ~Kids Before Screens
