In this blog post from the Net Nanny website, Annemarie Lange uses statistics to describe the magnitude of addictions among young people. Just to quote one statistic:
“ONLY 3% OF TEENAGE BOYS AND 17% OF GIRLS HAVE NEVER SEEN ONLINE PORNOGRAPHY.”
This article from Net Nanny is a good reminder why parents need to take the time to repeatedly speak to their teens about the dangers of internet pornography, arm them with the risks involved with pornography, and stay up-to-date on proper filtering software.
We owe it to our children: who else will care for them?
