Finally! A safe place for parents to discuss protecting kids from pornography (and its difficult effects). We created the Protect Young Minds Parent Discussion Group on Facebook as a safe place for parents to share stories, tips and ideas. And you can even submit questions or advice anonymously!

So many parents want to talk about taboo topics such as pornography, sexual abuse, masturbation, etc. but don’t have a comfortable and safe environment to do so – until now. We’ve made it totally comfortable because if you’d like, you can submit questions to us and we’ll post them anonymously. It’s an easy and effective way to seek advice from one another and collaborate on parenting challenges in the digital age.

Plus, to add lots of valuable discussion topics, I’ll be hosting weekly live videos that will include important tips and updated information to keep parents informed.

Why it’s important

Today pornography is rampant and unfortunately at your children’s finger tips. 1 in 10 visits to porn sites are by kids 10 years old and under. Internet filters can help, but they are in no way the only answer. The best protection for your child is you helping them to become their own filter. This group can help you gain the knowledge needed to be a more informed parent and navigate potentially difficult situations and conversations with your children.

4 reason why YOU should be a part of it

  1. It’s a great support network! It’s a safe place dedicated specifically to parents to help one another on taboo topics that are sometimes uncomfortable to discuss elsewhere.
  2. It’s completely private and a closed group.
  3. You can seek advice for yourself, in a safe and anonymous environment.
  4. AND you can offer your advice and experience to other parents as well.
