SAFE HAVEN (PORNOGRAPHY HELP)

Para español oprima aquí.

The current statistic says that 94% of children are exposed to pornography by the time they are 14 years old. The average age of first exposure is between 8 and 11 years old.

Never before has a generation dealt with this challenge with such intensity.

For those who struggle with a pornography habit, freedom is possible. There are a number of resources available to help one move forward to a better way of life.

TEENAGERS, there is tons of content on the internet that is easily accessible and difficult to break away from. In order to grow as Christian men and women, we have to challenge ourselves in being willing to surrender that which holds us back from loving ourselves and others well.

For Parents, there are a number of resources to keep your child safe from the dangers of the internet. When it comes to having this conversation with your child, the goal is to help them understand the harmful effects of porn, while also creating a safe space for them to open up to you, now or in the future. If your child discloses that they have struggled with pornography, it's important that you respond to them with support and love, rather than anger or punishment.

The following are various resources for people of all walks of life. As a church, let us become a 'safe haven' where we can embody true love and safety. Together, let us be leaders on the path of freedom and healing.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fr. Brian McNavish, BMcNavish(at)transfiguration.com
