Teaching Children about Pornography

New Family Home Evening Lessons: Teach Children about Pornography 


The Church has published a series of family home evening lessons designed to help parents discuss pornography with their children and to give their children tools to respond appropriately when they come in contact with pornography.

The following lessons can be accessed on the overcomingpornography.org website:

Some parents may feel uncomfortable discussing sexual intimacy and pornography with their children, or they may feel like it is not necessary until children are much older. However, Elder Richard G. Scott counseled, 'The addiction of pornography can begin with youth at a very early age. Take preventative action to avoid that tragedy' ('To Aquire Spiritual Guidance,' Oct. 2009 General Conference).
