To initiate a conversation between children and their parents regarding online pornography exposure, and to provide practical, real world solutions.
Because this conversation has historically been too awkward or uncomfortable, our children have grown up in a world of constant exposure to pornography without adult input, supervision, or restrictions. Pornography will be a part of all our young teen’s / tween’s life, for a very long time and must be mitigated by communication now, before any exposure.
This is not our children’s fault. This is not the fault of a 15 year old boy, mirroring what he has seen in online pornography for years, because it has not been made clear to him that it’s not real. He may then cross serious boundaries, drifting into assault, as he acts out what he believes is ‘expected’ or ‘normal’, and only because his sex education has come from porn. The Third Talk is here to speak with these children, and their Parents, and initiate the porn conversation in a way that does not produce shame or blame. Our children are innocent of this challenge. They are not ‘bad kids’ because they are biologically and spiritually attracted to this content. They did not invent porn, or smart phones. This is the world they now live in, and this is not their fault.
We are a non-denominational, non-partisan, kid focused education organization; we are for education, communication and solutions that take into consideration the real world our kids live in now, and not the world we wished they lived in. Help us to create a better world for our kids to grow up in.
I hope you’ll help me change our porn-culture.
