5 behavioral steps parents should do when their children watch sensitive movies
Most importantly, don’t make your child feel scared or embarrassed after watching porn.
This is something every parent will have to deal with one day. The only way that parents can do it is to face reality, talk openly with children, answer children’s questions. And most importantly, don’t make your child feel scared or embarrassed after watching porn.
1. Don’t overreact
Anyway, it happened. No matter what you do, that fact cannot be reversed. Therefore, parents have to deal with this with a sober mentality. If you spot your child watching porn, say it’s inappropriate and you should discuss the topic with your child. But don’t do it with anger.
Parents, think in advance about what to say to your child. Then bring up the topic in a simple way, in easy-to-understand language so your child can understand what pornography is.
2. Discuss the topic
During the discussion, use the exact physiological terms you mean. This is not the time to understatement. In this way, parents are showing their children that sex is a process that doesn’t have to be hidden by using alternative picture words.
The discussion will consist of three steps:
First, let your child know that you have been exposed to pornography.
Second, tell your child that it’s normal and he shouldn’t be ashamed to discuss sex. Almost every child wants to talk about this topic but doesn’t know who to talk to. As a parent, you should be one of those people you trust enough to turn to.
Third, tell your child that’s not how sex really works. Please share your views on sex. Emphasize the emotional aspects of intimate actions.
Fourth, convince your child that pornography rarely reflects reality. Your baby’s body will change and these changes won’t look the same as you see on the video.
3. Encourage your child to ask questions
Encourage your child to ask you questions, instead of asking others. Please answer those questions frankly. Use the right words for things your child may have seen. It will help you keep the discussion going on this sensitive issue.
The most important thing is not to frighten or embarrass the child. Even if you do, your child won’t stop watching porn. They will just keep you from noticing.
4. Make it clear that it’s not okay to continue watching porn
Finally, don’t forget your child is just a kid. So let’s emphasize that there’s more to watching than just porn. Just like being allowed to drink alcohol, up to a certain age your child can watch them even though you don’t encourage it.
5. Cut off the source of contact
The next step is to find out from which source the child was exposed to pornography. By using techniques, make sure that if your child continues to watch, you will know it.
In addition, parents need to keep a close eye on their children’s use of network-connected devices and usage time.
