Internet Pornography is a huge issue in today’s society. Most parents already know that there is no quick fix to pornography. There is almost no way to completely eliminate this information from being uploaded onto the web. A study done by the United States Research Council entitled: Youth, Pornography, and the Internet, confirms that finding a way to absolutely rid the internet of pornography is a near impossible task. The internet’s global reach makes it impossible to make obscenity laws banning pornography when it is uploaded overseas as much as it is at home.
What it comes down to is this: the internet can only do so much for the safety of your children. Parents should take the necessary steps of getting internet filters, and using kid-safe technology to reduce the risk of your child being exposed to unwanted material. The next step of keeping your children safe lies not in internet filters or anything to do with the internet at all, but in what you teach your children about pornography. Be willing to sit with your child while they use the internet and teach them what is appropriate and what to avoid. Have conversations with your children that are not always easy. Teach them good values and morals.
If you do all that you can for the safety of your children in teaching them to avoid,how to avoid, and why to avoid, pornography and other negative influences from the web, Kidsemail.org will do their part to keep them safe from these influences from their email.
