Teens and Porn

As a mother of two teens, I was appalled when reading this headline in the Daily Mail :

Mother of four-year-old girl raped by boy, 14, blasts judge who freed him because he had been corrupted by internet porn for ‘cheap sentence’

This is scary! Not only can porn be viewed on the computer, but it can be viewed on almost anything linked to the web. Cellphones, PSP’s, tablets…

Even when you are not looking for porn or nudity, it sometimes finds its way into your daily browsing. I have seen obscene pictures on blogs and have seen quite a few on Instagram too. Luckily you can report it, like on Facebook and such, but it was too late for my poor little eyes. Yuck!

So even if we come across it, unwillingly, that’s how easy it will be when our kids start looking for it, willingly. Tongue twister, sorry.

So my question to you is, what are YOU going to do to keep your kids and yourself safe from porn. Or do you think that it is harmless? Are the one who says, “ah, if they will want to see it, they will find it?” True, but it is your responsibility to talk to your kids and to make them aware of the dangers that it brings.

Am I over reacting you think? I’m sorry, but porn IS dangerous!

  • It’s as addictive as crack
  • It gives one the a false illusion of how sex should be.
  • It destructs intimacy in a relationship.
  • Porn is degrading to the women (and to men) , many of whom are forced into making pornography.
  • In most of the movies, pictures there is no condom in sight. So, no safe sex and that can result in STD’s and AIDS.
  • Warped Thinking and Desensitization

And I could go on.

Still not convinced? Then maybe you should watch this following clip. It’s one of Mark Driscoll‘s sermons on pornography :

So again, what will you do to make your kids aware of the dangers of pornography? I hope you’ll do something, because even if you think that your child doesn’t look for it…you could be left very surprised.

The WorshipMob did the job

Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. My soul is downcast within me ~Psalm 42:5-6a

David penned down exactly, in Psalms, how I am feeling today. I haven’t had the best of day yet and I’m at a loss for words right now, so I’m just share with some a something that I’ve just discovered on the internet . The Worshipmob! If you have never heard of them yet, look them up! I watched a couple of their video’s on their YouTube channel and the one titled “Forever lifted Higher” just lifted me up. I ended up watching it over and over again and singing along in praise and feeling my sorrow slowly leaving me. Thank you guys!
