There is no fool-proof formula to follow when it comes to protecting children from sexually graphic material, pornography or online predators.  Even if you make your own home secure, at some point your children will walk out your door and have to make their own decisions.

You can prepare your child for possible exposure to sexually graphic material through regular and intentional interaction with him or her on the topic.  Teach them about healthy sexuality and help prepare them with a plan for what to do if they are exposed to pornography or an online predator.  By addressing the issue up front, you will create an awareness that may protect them if they are exposed to these materials or influences.  

Keep your home computer safe by installing family protection software.
