Is Your Web Filter Helping or Hurting?
Is your internet filter harming or helping in your home? Internet filters can be a valuable tool in preventing accidental or intentional exposure to pornography, as well as an aid in recovery for those addicted. However, they can also do more harm than good when not used properly; a filter is only a small part in the equation for overcoming pornography addiction. It is not the cure to an addiction, nor is it a “digital parent”. Learn how and why human intervention and meaningful connections are vital to overcoming pornography by learning effective habits for using internet filters at home with children and addicts; learn to avoid the pitfalls and misconceptions surrounding internet filters; and learn to evaluate your own personal use of a filter in your home to use it more effectively.
