In Their Own Words

Listen to these stories from parents and teenagers as they recount their struggles and successes when dealing with pornography problems.

  1. A daughter expressed thanks for the loving adult help.
    “I learned about why I used the Internet to escape my feelings and learned better ways of coping with pressures at school and in friendships... I am so much happier now…”
  2. A father advised parents to understand and validate a child’s feelings.
    “It was so difficult to validate their feelings because I naturally want to throw out all of my advice and wisdom; but unfortunately, this often turns them off.”
