Smartphones and Teen Pornography
If you walk the halls of any middle school or high school in America today, there is a good chance that you will see most of the kids with some sort of Smartphone, Ipad, Ipod, etc. Now these technological wonders in and of themselves are not dangerous, but like anything else, we must use them with caution.
One of the fastest growing problems with our kids today is pornography. It is easily accessible through their Smartphones and other mobile devices. With over 22 years teaching experience in our public schools in both Florida and Georgia, I have seen the number of teenz addicted to pornography rise dramatically. The fact that it is so easily available on the device that they have with them 24/7, it is nearly impossible to stop this epidemic.
The "TRUTH" is that we cannot monitor and block everything that our kids see on their mobile devices. Even while I was teaching at school using my desk top, certain male enhancement ads got through the county protective fire walls. That is still a mystery to me to this day.
We must work together to help our kids with this alarming and growing trend among our kids. Refer to the information to the right to learn how you can help monitor and protect our kids from pornography. Because if we do not raise our kids, the world will.
1st Corinthians 10:13 " No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man or woman. God is faithful, and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation He will also provide a way of escape, that you may be able to endure it."
