It is not a question if your child/children will view pornography, it is a question of when.

Schools and families must intentionally filter out inappropriate sexual images so that they are not viewed by children. Nearly 50% of children who see pornography by accident say they can’t forget that first image.

According to a 2018 study in NZ (Youth and Porn) 25% of kids under age 12 have accessed pornography. The largest group of viewers of internet pornography is children aged 12-17. The biggest problem with our kids seeing pornography isn’t that it’s about sex, but that it’s about unrealistic sex.

Want to learn more about the long-term impacts of pornography viewing?

Want to learn how to talk to your kids? Then this FREE workshop with Kerri Isham is for you!

Kerri Isham is a CHILD SAFETY CHAMPION! She believes that childhood should be a magical time in someone’s life…free of abuse and exploitation. For many children this has never been a reality. She has committed her life to changing that by writing books, offering workshops, and by teaching in public/private schools and in Indigenous communities.

She is a certified sexual health educator who trains social workers, early childhood educators, teachers, educational assistants, foster parents, parents, and grandparents raising grandchildren in three main areas: creating a culture of child protection, sexual health education for children & youth with special needs, and information regarding the long-term impacts of pornography. Why? It will take an entire community’s focus to create this change for our most precious resource – our children.
