Pornography is a confronting issue to every good parent. But it is readily available everywhere; thanks to the internet and it is best to have a plan on how you are going to talk about it. It is confusing to young children and bears the excitement of forbidden fruit to older ones.
You don’t have to be stressed about it if you have an open relationship with you child because they will being it up. Honest discussions are always the best protection against all the misinformation out there. If you have such an open relationship you will get more than one go at getting it right.
What do I mean by and open relationship? Well in the case of my own children it meant: “nothing is forbidden as long as it is discussed with respect”. This does not mean that everything always went smoothly; far from it. Nor does it mean that the discussions were never heated. But as long as the opportunity to re-approach the subject was never removed it meant that when we messed it up both parent and child got to try again.

Sometimes however, even the best child parent relationship needs a way in. That is where it is good to have a script. They are never perfect but they can help. Especially for anybody that is having trouble opening up their relationship, they are a great support mechanism.
This article has three scripts on helping your children work through the issue of pornography, that can help open the discussion. They are far from perfect and as the author says you will need to modify them to suit. But they are a good start and I hope they help.
