  1. Hey, I’ve been looking at a few of these articles on this site, and this one caught my eye. Now, I’m college aged and I’ve got a ways to go (unfortunately) until I finally reach the point I can start a family. Well, I may be a bit strange in that I’ve never once looked at pornography nor had the desire to. I’m not sure what I’m going to tell my son eventually when he start maturing enough to be curious. I was certainly curious, but I made it a goal never to seek out pornography, and I actually avoided it. I wonder if I’ll be able to connect with my son if ever he stumbles into a kind of struggle I’ve never had to deal with before.

    • Brian, I trust God will give you the right words! He is faithful, and will bless your commitment to “run away” from this issue. If you have a son, do your homework and figure out what tools he will need to be prepared for the internet. Just be open and honest with your future son, and if he stumbles, shower him with grace, and maybe there will be someone else in his life you can point to who can help him make sense of the issue. These are all just hypotheticals, but I’m impressed that you’re thinking ahead and wanting to be prepared. Be well!

    • Thanks! I’ve been thinking about what I want to do as a parent for a long time now, and I’ve still got a long ways to go. I’m really looking forward to what the Lord has planned for me. Thanks for your advice!
