Being a young kid is an exciting time. Awkward, but exciting. Our hormones are raging, we’re discovering ourselves and our sense of individuality, we’re given more freedom and choice as we begin to navigate the world outside the direct supervision of our parents. Our feelings are big and bold and brash. They’re also unpredictable and fluctuating.
ONLINE PORNOGRAPHY IS A PROBLEM FOR PARENTS OF YOUNG PEOPLE. THE THIRD TALK™ PARENT’S GUIDE VIDEO SERIES IS THE SOLUTION.
Subject matter experts The Third Talk Inc. today announced the release of their Parent’s Guide, a first-of-its-kind program to provide parents the language necessary to have a pornography prevention conversation with their children. Designed for parents, grandparents, caregivers, and guardians, this seven-part video series offers adults the words to use to initiate the conversation, and the multiple health and safety reasons young people shouldn’t see adult content. This video series is available at www.thethirdtalk.org and arrives just in time for back-to-school discussions each parent must now have with their young students.

Personable and without colorful language, John Van Arnam has been speaking about the harms of adult content with parents and their children for years. His style is practical and he puts everyone at ease.
