Youth Viewing Porn

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

MODS: l checked but double-check these.

My local TV station a little while ago gave a statistic about how many teens and pre-teens are viewing pornography.

Couldn't find their reference and l didn't catch the numbers.

Here are two recent news articles about this unhealthy behavior:

This filth is mind-warping. Does anyone have links to counseling styles for parents?

Do not allow the computer in the child's bedroom. Keep it in the living room or family room where others can be present and see what sites the child is viewing. Parents can set up the homepage to a safe site. Bookmark safe sites for the child to use. Use a search engine that offers a "safe search" feature or install one of the Net's many software filters.

Salam Uhty.

l read last year that this is now an obsolete format because -as mentioned in one article- the kids have their own phones to log-in with.

How to discuss it is what l am trying to get posted for the parents on SC.

A child's phone can be adjusted so that they cannot browse the Internet. I don't think children should be using their phone except for calling or texting someone to pick them up and take them somewhere (school, home, soccer practice, etc.).

The path I’m following with my son is to educate him as to what Islam allows and what Islam forbids. I’ve also explained to him that Allah in his wisdom has not just randomly chosen to make things Halal or Haram. When Allah made something Haram it was because it causes harm to the person or persons on some level.

I’ve also explained the negative consequences of not only Porn but also Alcohol, Gambling and the other vices which are Haram. How they harm a person’s life in complex and deceptive yet real ways. How Porn affects one’s opinion towards the opposite sex as well as how it corrupts one’s mind and soul. How gambling destroys one financially, Alcohol destroying the proportionate amount of liver cells, etc...

Personally, I’m of the mindset that instead of taking a child’s access away that educating him on why we should be avoiding those things will be more successful. As we all know the more you tell a child not to do something the more they will do it.

Granted my son is only 11 right now and not really at the age when his hormones go crazy but at the same time having an open line of communication as well as educating him on the Halal and Haram should hopefully play a role in him stopping to think for a minute before he engages in any such act. This all goes hand in hand with educating him on Islam.

Porn is dumb. Period. 

An adult woman student of mine about 30 years ago made -what is to me- an insightful comment: it is so childish.

The reason l think this has to do with child development. Children go through stages of awareness and pre-occupation. Study their hands, inspect their feet, ... ,play with water, bodily functions, and so forth. Then they hit the sex stage and never grow out of it. That is why l was/is struck by her comment.

Which correlates with an Army course l had which -then- said most people never grow out of their teenage years. Now l think there is a lot of pre-teen/junior-high-school people that never grew into high school.

My kids do not have smart phones. They can call and text on their basic phones. At home, the computers are in a public area and monitored. The kids all know that I can go through their files and browser history at any time, and my parental controls software logs all computer activities too. They know I'm watching so they watch themselves. (One of my kids alerted me when he was looking up a famous man named "Richard".)

I can't control what they see when they aren't home, but they have been taught right from wrong. What they do is up to them. Parents give guidance but kids have free will, you know.

You can also set up parental control in a router. Right now, skipping browser's history is as easy as pressing Ctrl+Shift+N. You can still find wesbites they visit as the network administrator. Or by installing a ley logger.

I once had to monitor the use of my father's company's workstations, and used both hidden keyloggers and net monitoring. Even in workplaces you find people watching porn.

I am with notme here, though. One has to teach right from wrong, the harm they do to themselves after that, it is pretty much up to them.

Smart phone easy Internet access and free time is Shaitans best weapon in this modern age. 

To prevent teens from using it we have some Internet security from many antivirus like Norton and others which gives you the right to give your pc a limited access on internet

We should also closely monitor the friendship of our teen brother or our children coz that is where it comes from

Specifically porn is destructive in future marital relations. I honestly feel ashamed how some people believe in these false stereotypes found in the porn industry, where both men and women have exaggerated features that have little to do with normality. They believe in these stereotypes and then expect them in their partners, to the point they even dare to bring the subject in public. And I prefer to stop it here because it is embarassing.

They imitate them, too. About fifteen years ago l read a study of 10 to 13 year old s-activity. Different areas of the country were selected. One thing l remember reading is that the children would watch the Playboy Channel and then do the same things.
