Smartphones, pornography and violence are inevitably linked today….
By the end of third grade (age 8) 75% of the Israeli children have smartphones.
By the end of fourth grade (age 9) 43% of them, have been exposed to porn already.
Children are confused today regarding sexual conduct and, as parents, we can certainly not allow ourselves to sit and wait for “something to happen”… Every parent needs to be pro-active, talk and guide his child (as young and as early as possible) regarding:
Safe behavior on the internet.
The truth about body image (and not the images our children are bombarded with on social media).
The difference between healthy relationships / sexuality and pornography.
Appropriate conduct and guidelines regarding sexual behavior.
I decided to join a wonderful team of women, who created “the Israeli center for sex education” (מידע אמין על מין) and took upon themselves the crucial mission of educating children, parents and professionals on all of those subjects, and provide reliable information.
For those of you who read Hebrew, they have tons of extremely useful info on their site!
For those of you who don’t, they have just translated 2 of their brochures IN ENGLISH and they are FREE (guidelines for children / for teenagers).
Finally, I am finishing their intensive course for parenting coaches, and will soon start giving talks and lectures on that subject.
Let me know if you’d like to be updated on my upcoming talk.
