A Parent's Guide To Young People And Porn
A practical, realistic guide for parents wanting to talk to their young people about explicit material.
Books, Parents Guides
Finding pornography online is as easy as googling the word ‘sex’. Technological shifts have made it accessible on mobile phones, videogames and laptops.
That means young people grow up with frighteningly easy access to unregulated online pornography and sexually explicit materials. Increasingly porn depicts the degradation of women and violence, desensitising those viewing it.
The best response starts with adults acknowledging the reality of teenager’s daily lives, and then being prepared to find ways to initiate conversations that are factual, sensitive and appropriate for their children.
This guide addresses the impact pornography is having on young people. It offers practical guidance about what you can do to support healthy sexual development of the children and young people in your care as well as signposting further information and support.
Suitable for: Parents and carers, Youth workers.
