watching porn in the darkProtecting children is an important aspect of being a parent. One of my most significant responsibilities as a parent is to look ahead to the risks and dangers that threaten my family.

This is why Kristen Jensen’s Good Pictures, Bad Pictures has been a tremendous support. It’s a book you can read with your kids on this difficult topic that includes discussion questions at the end of each chapter alongside solid research and an action plan for moments when they see pornographic material.
