The attached MT has some important new announcements for you, so please take a look.
Today I would like to share a few thoughts on what has become an epidemic in our country and, unfortunately, has become just one more danger from which you as parents must protect your children. The new statistics are shocking and I thought it appropriate to pass this information and the resources on to you.
Because technology is widely available, even to children, and sex and technology have become hopelessly intertwined, more children than ever are being exposed to pornography eariler than ever. This is a far cry from what you may have found in your back alley as a child, and the effects on children are profound. While I really only have time to bring this to your attention and beg you to take steps to protect the young minds placed in your care, I would also like to point you to a few resources you may find helpful.
This poignant article entitled, “Will I Rob My Child’s Innocence If I Start Talking about the Dangers of Porn?” is a great place to start. The book that is mentioned in the article is available in our school offices for parents to check out. This is not a topic we address at ICA, but feel that parents are best suited to have sexual-related discussions with their students.
Parenting today is not an easy job and I commend each of you for taking it on. You have some amazing children and we are so glad to come alongside and help you with the challenge of keeping them safe!
Blessings on your day,
