How Do You React When Your Child Admits to Watching Porn?

“No parent looks forward to the day their child admits to watching porn for the first time, but such a scenario is inevitable today,” John Fort wrote in a recent article.

The article, entitled How to React the First Time Your Child Admits to Watching Porn, helps parents plan their initial reaction and their conversation prior to their child coming to them.

Despite the surprise you may feel as a parent, your child needs a safe place to share their failure. A parent’s reaction is so critical, Fort wrote, “The child already feels enough shame, I promise, they don’t need more from us. Not that first time, anyway.”
