The crisis cyber-powered porn presents youth and what to do about it

According to the XXXChurch website, a non-profit dedicated to prevention of and recovery from porn addiction, sex is the number one topic searched on the internet. And so parents monitoring their child’s on-line activities should not be surprised to eventually find evidence of pornographic or sexualized content.

Your child does not have to hunt for sexualized content; it will find her or he will stumble on it.

Pastor Steve Lindner at Life Community Church in Roseville is concerned that parents are better equipped to help their children navigate the network culture in ways that prevent and overcome the influence of pornography.

“We know that kids can easily find apps to unblock the parental controls,” he said. “So how is a parent supposed to get control?”

Hence the challenge of the modern parent is to create a culture of transparency at home where it is safe to talk about the frightening and shameful things kids can witness and experience via internet connectivity. This requires that parents become well informed and confident about the nature of the harmful things that disturb the peace for their children, and how to be a trusted resource to help manage network connectivity.

Forum on the network victimization of children

Lindner is organizing a forum, Sunday April 27, at Life Community Church in Roseville, to help parents understand the prevalence and impact of internet porn on our youth, and offer simple guidance for concerned parents. The forum will feature various local experts on the sexualizing and victimization of kids and how to be the proactive parent for this threat in the social network.

Register for this event that is open to the public and free of charge. You may also register by calling the church office: 916-788-2697.
