Parents ask their top questions about preparing children and teens to reject the lies of pornography and how to teach the truth of human dignity and healthy sexuality.
This session was part of the Utah Coalition Against Pornography Conference in Salt Lake City on April 18, 2015.
Kristen grew up wanting to write a children’s book on the dangers of pornography. OK, that’s a stretch! But it became her passion after she received a late-night phone call from a traumatized mother dealing with the consequences of her porn-addicted son. That’s when she linked arms with Dr. Gail Poyner and spent the next three years writing the Amazon #1 best-selling book, Good Pictures Bad Pictures: Porn-Proofing Today’s Young Kids. Since then, Kristen has become a frequent speaker and guest on podcasts, webinars and radio broadcasts and is a member of the National Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Prevention Task Force. She actively blogs at PornProofKids.org, where she helps parents empower their kids to reject pornography. Kristen is the mother of three (really great) kids and lives with her (really supportive) husband and (extremely cute) doggie in the beautiful state of Washington.
