How My 10-Year-Old Son’s Battle with Porn Brought Us Together

My son came forward on his own about 6 weeks ago pleading…begging… to “make it stop Daddy!”

His “friend” introduced him to porn videos and even knew when to “shut it off” before his Mom made her way down the hall to “check on them.”

We find ourselves lucky and even grateful because he came to us…we didn’t have to catch him. Truth is he showed ZERO signs that anything was off, so had he not come forward, I don’t think we would have ever known! He hid his pain well. That said… your little angel you think isn’t struggling probably is, or has some heavy thoughts, images, and emotions they don’t quite know how to process.

Now, that’s not always the case for most kids, so if you catch your kid in the act, pull him/her aside lovingly. They’re in enough pain—believe it or not—already, and it’s killing them inside despite what you might think. As enticing as porn is, they want out. They don’t know how to break the barriers of shame, guilt, and embarrassment. It’s too much for their minds to handle between the ages of 5 and 17 years old, in my opinion. My son is 10 years old, and his battle is fierce.
