The Issue with Romance Novels

Many young adults have access to picking up a romance novel and reading it from cover to cover. But as a parent, have you ever wondered what the content may include? Romance novels are filling our children’s mind with “textual porn” in the same way visual porn would. Fantasies are created leaving our children curious for more. Bobby Angel from Covenant Eyes phrases it as, “Romantic novels are about escaping the humdrum and conjuring up some excitement – particularity sexual excitement.” Parents, be aware that pornographic images or thoughts can be seen and heard through movies, song lyrics and images on social media sites. It is important to begin talking with your children about pornography and continually having open conversations about the harm it can have on them and their future.
