Quotes and Tweets:

When it comes to the issue of second-hand porn in our homes, there is still a collective blind spot despite the overwhelming evidence that parents’ porn consumption negatively impacts children. @RosieMakinney

Porn activates the sexual part of a child’s feeling-bring before their thinking-bran even knows what sex is. @RosieMakinney

Porn is the quiet killer of families, slowly and progressively destroying trust and intimacy between mothers and fathers. @RosieMakinney

It is natural to want to shield your kids from the truth when it involves compulsive porn use, but experts say that it is actually worse for the child to be kept in the dark. Pretending that everything is fine will backfire. @RosieMakinney

Average age of first exposure to porn is eleven. Other studies say the figure is closer to eight. @RosieMakinney

My top piece of tech advice to parents is to ensure that you restrict your child’s ability to download apps onto their phone without your knowledge. You need to keep on top of what black holes your child has access to. @RosieMakinney

Porn-proofing your kids does not happen in a single conversation. It is an on-going dialogue.@RosieMakinney

Even when your kids’ dumb decisions trigger you, don’t forget to take a few deep breaths before responding. Your goal here is to keep the channels open. You want your kids to come to you when they have questions about something they have seen. @RosieMakinney

Remember: a child who is struggling with compulsive porn use is a child whose brain has been hijacked. @RosieMakinney
