How to Talk to Children and Youth About Pornography

Wednesday, March 2 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

on Zoom

Sponsored by SD 85 DPAC

It is not about if your child/children will view pornography, it is about when. Schools and families must intentionally filter out inappropriate sexual images so that they are not viewed by children. Nearly 50% of children who see pornography by accident say they can’t forget that first image. According to a 2018 study in NZ (Youth and Porn) 25% of kids under 12 have accessed pornography. The largest group of viewers of internet pornography is children 12-17. The biggest problem with our kids seeing pornography isn’t that it’s about sex, but that it’s about unrealistic sex. Want to learn more about the long-term impacts of pornography viewing? Want to learn how to talk to your kids?  Then this workshop is for you!
