How Do I Say It? Talking to Kids and Teens About Pornography
I know how exactly how you feel! Your heart is beating. Your mouth is dry. Your words seem to stick in your throat. It’s that moment when you start a conversation with your child about pornography. But take a deep breath and relax! You’re doing great! Even parents who are never at a loss for words often stumble when approaching this topic. In this class Deanna offers practical advice for starting positive conversations with kids of all ages—from preschoolers to college kids. You can build trust at every age. Let’s talk about it!
This presentation was given at the Utah Coalition Against Pornography Conference in Salt Lake City on March 12, 2016.
Deanna Lambson has lots of experience talking to kids as an elementary school teacher, mother of 6, and PTA volunteer for over 22 years! (There must be some award for that!) Deanna developed the Internet Safety Program “I’ve Got the Power!” for her kids’ school. With the help of Women for Decency she published “I’ve Got the Power,” and “Let’s Get Real!” She has since published “Be a Media Detective!” and “Brain Power!” which have been presented at elementary and junior highs across the state and country. Each week-long program helps parents teach Internet safety in a fun, positive and empowering way. Deanna is the founder of whiteribbonweek.org.
