A recent article shared that time on the internet is surpassing television time in taking family quality time. It is a place where students can go to get research but it is so easy to get something undesired and undesirable — Internet porn.
I will never forget when our son as a young teen signed up for some freebies. He was into games at a time when Nintendo, Playstation, etc. were just beginning to start their markets. We never were sure how it happened, but he began getting emails enticing him to look at “some nice pictures.” And these emails became more frequent … just click here to “see my picture.” Unfortunately, although the Internet provides us so much information at the touch of our fingers, there are many undesirable porn sites and they are just as easily available.
This warning isn’t just for Asian parents, but I can see how in trying to give our kids educational advantages, the Internet will regularly be used at home to write papers and do research. Sadly, the Internet can also create some addictive problems. The statistics are overwhelming in how many men and women are addicted to porn, and even worse, the percentages of people who don’t view it as wrong.
All parents should be aware… it’s not just our home computers, but our smartphones and tablets as well.
Parents, be aware.
What do you do to shield your children, your spouse and yourself from internet porn?
