One of the best books I’ve ever seen to introduce the topic of pornography to kids 9-12, without shaming, but while giving them all the info they need.
Good Pictures Bad Pictures is a comfortable, read-aloud story about a mom and dad who teach their child what pornography is, why it’s dangerous, and how to reject it. Using easy-to-understand science and simple analogies, this ground-breaking book engages young kids to porn-proof their own brains. It goes into all the science of how porn can become addictive, and tells kids that if they’ve seen it and they’ve become aroused, they’re not bad or wrong. It’s just dangerous.
And then it shows kids how to fight it.
It’s very real, very relatable, and it removes parental stress about talking to our kids about porn!
The 5-point CAN DO Plan™ teaches kids how to avoid the brain-warping images of pornography and minimize the troubling memories of accidental exposure that can lead them into a dark and destructive addiction.
To stay safe in the digital age, kids must install an internal filter in their own brain. Good Pictures Bad Pictures shows them how.
