Plugged In: The viewing of pornography by children
Children are now growing up in a world saturated by sexual imagery, internet access, and frequently, pornography. This could be very different from the world their caregivers and teachers grew up in! As part of protecting children from harm, adults in this workshop will: a) analyze the potential impacts of pornography on healthy sexual development; b) summarize potentially healthy responses to the viewing of pornography by children. Tools will be provided to help families, teachers, and caregivers consider their options when it comes to helping protect children from harmful messaging as well as to nurture healthy sexual development. This program is particularly for infant through afterschool (children up to 12 years old) teachers and caregivers, and those who support them.
