Porn-Resilient Relationships: How Parent Responses Grow Kids Up or Shut Them Down
Our children are being raised in a hypersexual world. Yes, they need protection, but more importantly, they need resilience. Your primary task as a parent is not to prevent exposure (although that’s critical), it’s to help your child mature sexually and as a whole person. The Porn-Resilient model includes 4 steps that will help you:
- Establish a healthy relationship with your child
- Prepare them by cultivating resilience, responsibility, and intuition
- Help them manage media through family culture, boundaries, and filters
- Navigate exposure to pornography by responding in a way that helps them grow and become wiser and stronger.
Learn which responses grow kids up and which responses shut kids down. And learn how balancing love and discipline can help you raise a porn-resilient child.
