Jenson Good Pictures Bad Pictures: Porn-Proofing Today’s Young Kids by Kristen A. Jenson Bark.us 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

Today I interview Lyschel Burket. She has been working with women since 2008 as they take steps toward healing and their pursuit of God as they face sexual betrayal in their marriage. She has facilitated support groups specific to partners since 2013 both locally in Knoxville, TN and online through Vicki Tiede Ministries. After serving in these two spaces for almost 5 years Lyschel returned to school and obtained her coaching certification in recovery work. Lyschel is a Professional Coach, and Certified Partner Coach with APSATS (The Assoc of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists). Lyschel is the Lead Hope Caster and Founder of Hope Redefined.

  7. Discerning what level of sharing will help and what will harm. Whether you want to know everything or absolutely nothing that is going on inside your husband's head, it's good to know what level of sharing from him is going to help you heal and move forward and what is going to hold you back. Learn why being your husband's primary accountability partner is a bad idea, and also why basing your feeling of stability and safety on his thought life is a precarious and ineffective strategy.
