Pornaddiction.com Talks About Protecting the Family from Getting Hooked on Porn
PR Log - Oct 24, 2012 - No one wants their children to be exposed to pornography. With porn addiction on the rise, it's more critical than ever to shield your family from porn. Unfortunately, it's not easy to do so. With the proliferation of mobile devices and easy access to the Internet from computers and laptops, viewing porn is easier than it's ever been. Luckily, there's a lot you can do to protect your family from becoming hooked on porn. The following tips are sure to help.
Use Filtering Software - Install top-quality filtering software on every computer in the home. This is one type of software that's well worth the money. Do some research to ensure that you get a program that gets the job done right. In most cases, you will have to install updates regularly to ensure that it continues to work properly.
Keep Computers in Common Areas - People in your family are less likely to become addicted to porn when they're unable to view it privately. Don't allow your children to have computers in their rooms. Have a single computer in a common area to reduce the risk that people will be able to view porn.
Monitor Cell Phone Use - Unfortunately, people can view pornography on devices other than computers. Smartphones and cell phones are prime examples. The best thing to do is to stick with basic flip phones for kids. If your child has to have a smartphone, make a point of monitoring its use. There are apps that block inappropriate content, so find one and install it.
Block Mature Content on TV - There's a lot of pornography available through satellite and cable TV these days. In many cases, viewing adult content is as simple as pushing a button on the remote control. All major cable TV providers have options for blocking mature content. Learn how to do so and enable this feature. Examine cable TV bills carefully as well.
Spend Quality Time Together as a Family - The members of your family are far less likely to become addicted to porn when everyone spends plenty of quality time together. Sit down and eat meals together as a family. Talk to your children and make sure they know that they can come to you with any problems. Isolation often leads to porn addiction, so these efforts are well worth it.
By keeping these points in mind, you should be able to shield your family from porn and prevent porn addiction.
