The stats on pornography use are alarming. Sixty-seven percent of young males view pornography on a regular basis. Porn use for this generation is no longer the exception – it’s the norm.
Many parents do the bare minimum when it comes to talking to their children about sex. They have “the talk” and encourage their children to pursue abstinence, but otherwise they sit back and hope that their kids stay pure for as long as possible.
But in a world increasingly fueled by pornography, you cannot afford to be passive.
We’ll give you practical tools for guiding your children on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Equipping Your Kids to Resist Pornography.” Our guests are coauthors Daniel Weiss and Josh Glaser. Each has spent the last two decades involved in ministries promoting healthy sexuality.
They will help you cast a godly vision of love and sexuality for your children with their 4D framework:
- 1D: Desire – The world permits pursuing any sexual desire. Christianity teaches that sexual desire is good and that people must learn to master it.
- 2D: Design – Sex works well when we use it in the way for which it was created.
- 3D: Destiny – Sexual intimacy is a sacred signpost pointing to the spiritual union between Jesus and the church.
- 4D: Detour of Sin – God can redeem our failures.
Learn to navigate the challenges of the digital landscape and help your children embrace God’s vision for sex. Hear our program on your local radio station, online, on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or take us with you on our free phone app.
If you need help with a child who is struggling with pornography, we have caring Christian counselors on staff, and it would be their privilege to offer you a free consultation. Call us, leave your name and number, and they’ll get back with you just as soon as possible. The number during business hours is 1-800-A-FAMILY (232-6459).
Josh and Daniel have written a book called Treading Boldly Through a Pornographic World: A Field Guide for Parents. I believe in their book so much that I endorsed it. We’ll give you a copy for a gift of any amount as a way of saying thank you for touching others with the love of Christ. For more information, visit our website or call 1-800-A-FAMILY (232-6459).
