BreakPoint: Help in the midst of a pornography plague

Computer tile

A few years ago, a woman spotted her teenage son's laptop on the kitchen counter. She opened the lid, and what she saw horrified her - a series of pornographic pictures. She clicked on an image, and a sexually explicit video began playing. She checked her son's browser history, which revealed this was not the first time her son had accessed pornography. This woman was shocked, but she should not have been. As author Josh McDowell once told me, "The question is not if my kids will see pornography, but what will I do when it happens."

In their new book, "Treading Boldly Through a Pornographic World," authors Daniel Weiss and Joshua Glaser note that today's parents are the first in history to bring up children in such a digitally connected, pornography-saturated world.
