Brittany and I had a miscommunication and I didn’t realize she had posted our podcast way back in May! I just got the chance to listen to it last weekend, Episode #25. It’s fabulous, and available anywhere you download your podcasts—or you can listen, or read the show notes here. I also listened to several other episodes, and I love them so much. Brittany has a wonderful way of bringing positivity and peace to difficult topics, which is exactly what we want as parents to be able to do. I highly recommend the entire podcast, and of course her website.
UCAP St George is coming up in just a few weeks. I’m so excited! There will be speakers and booths with wonderful information for addicts, betrayed spouses, parents who want to teach their children about healthy sexuality, etc. I look forward to seeing you there! Come see me at my booth for books, course information, and giveaways!

Summer can be crazy, if you have to miss a week, you can make it up, or a temporary recording can be made available (based on the consent of other participants).
If you want a course but can’t take it during the offered time, let me know, I’d love to try and accommodate you now or in the future. I do occasionally add additional courses.

I have been derelict in posting about the newer website put out by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, entitled Addressing Pornography. I had the opportunity to assist in writing content for parts of this site. While you may not agree with every word posted, there are some wonderful resources here for parents seeking to protect their children, for those who struggle with porn use, and for betrayed spouses. I highly recommend checking it out and exploring what content connects with you.
Brittany Homer over at raisingtodayskids.com interviewed me as part of her recent podcast episode on the most important things parents should know about pornography. You can check it out with the link (for iTunes), listen on any other podcast app, or go to raisingtodayskids.com to listen on the website.
I will be recording a full episode with her next month about how parents can talk to their kids about sex. So stay tuned…
Note: Today’s post will include Judeo-Christian stories that help parents talk to their children about inadvertent exposure. Take what you like and leave the rest.
Inadvertent exposure is an important discussion topic that helps children bust shame around coming into contact with pornography. It helps open space for children to come and talk to their parents about exposure to pornography.
I love to use two examples in Judeo-Christian heritage in having this discussion. The first is the story of
These two pages introduce the topics of pornography and other sexual content—written or heard. The great thing about this is that parents can decide when to introduce the words associated with these types of explicit content while still giving children protection.
