Porn, Purity, and Parents

One of our main messages to parents is that they are the most influential persons in their child’s life.  Given that, they have a responsibility to create trust and dialogue with their kids, so that they–not the culture–become their child’s source for counsel and understanding about the issues of sex, purity, pornography, temptation, etc.  Moreover, there are specific steps we can take to create that environment.

In this post, our friends at Covenant Eyes, the leader in Internet accountability, relay an email they received from a 19-year-old young man about his struggle with pornography.  It is an encouraging story about the role parents can play in aiding and equipping their kids to pursue purity in a pornified culture.  Sadly, stories like this aren’t common enough in an era when silence, apathy, and avoidance on the part of parents regarding pornography seem to be the rule.  Let’s do our part to change that and employ the Biblical model of
openness, candor, grace, and accountability.
