Today, I’m republishing an episode with my dear friend, youth advocate, internet crusader and incredible human, Collin Kartchner, which was originally recorded in April of 2018. I’m putting this back out in the world with a little bit of commentary and whole lot of love.
Collin’s message and mission touched hundreds of thousands around the world as he taught parents to connect with their kids in this digital age, fought against the dangers of social media and spread the joy of 8 second hugs. I will never know the reason he was taken so soon, but I will continue to be inspired by his passion and support his mission in every way I can.
He wanted parents to wake up to the dangers that surround our kids and families. No one will ever fill his red Nike shoes, but I have listed below some accounts and organizations who are also spreading messages of hope and healing. I’ve also linked to Collin’s 2018 Tedx talk and his podcast. Please get educated and inspired and let your voice be heard. This is a fight worth fighting! #savethekids #savetheparents #forcollin.

As a part of the Sexual Health Series, today we are chatting with the amazing Kristen Jenson, author of the best-selling Good Pictures Bad Pictures series. She shares with us; how important it is to talk with our children about pornography.
Kristen loves helping and empowering parents. She encourages them and equips them with what to do WHEN (not if) their child sees pornography. These books give children a simple and age appropriate definition of what a bad picture is, and what to do when they see it.
At what age, is it appropriate to talk to your child about pornography?? Well… “At what age does your child have access to the internet”? WOAH! A big eye opener.
Even with the best technology and ALL of the filters we put in place. There will come a time, when your child is staring at a screen full of adult content. Will they know what to do when they see it? Will they come home and tell you about it?
Kristen teaches us the importance of having these difficult conversations early on. It actually strengthens the parent-child bond when you face these challenges together and even more, helps our children have healthy sex lives when they are married.
If you have additional questions about your child and pornography visit ProtectYoungMinds.org or you can grab yourself a copy of these books over on Amazon! You can also find resources on Facebook, Instagram @protectyoungminds, or Twitter @ProtectYM
