  1. What tools can you give to parents to help us educate our kids on these matters. I would not have been able to say the same things that “Ben” said to the other teen boys – because I just don’t know. Would love some information on starting dialogue and some some facts and ways to equip our boys to stay strong. Thank for what you do! God bless.

  2. Dealing with any sin or addiction can be embarrassing enough… (I should know) but having our children caught up in it is even worse for me. We need to be willing to talk about these things with our children and help them feel comfortable talking about them with us – regardless of our personal comfort.

    Covenant Eyes is awesome because it provides an immediate layer of protection for me and my family when on the internet. It’s a lot harder to stumble when you have a silent and invisible guardian that just shows up to protect you.

  3. I have 3 boys 17,15,12. My oldest has been suspended from school 3 times for looking at and downloading porn on school computer. First time was in middle school. He also has ordered porn on the tv not only at our house but a relatives house. I was so ready to send him to boys town or something because I couldn’t take it anymore. Made an appointment with his Dr and was told that he is addicted to it. WOW! He has lost internet until he is an adult. He is no longer allowed to use school computers. My 15 year old has never looked at it. Thinks it is disgusting. Recently found my 12 year old looking it up. Not a happy mom. He has lost internet until further notice. Is there a way to block porn sites on the computer??
