Ok, so maybe I’ve said this before, but I really mean it: This podcast episode is sooo important. I would put this week’s episode at the top of the list of most important Boy Mom episodes to listen to!
As we are wrapping up my summer mini-series on Boys and Technology, today we dive into the most concerning issue related to boys and devices: Pornography. Josh Glaser and Daniel Weiss, authors of Treading Boldly through a Pornographic World, join me to talk about how we can help our kids navigate in this hypersexualized, porn-friendly world we are raising them in. We talk about how parents can protect their kids, as well as how to handle it if we find out that our kids have already accessed porn. You’ll find so much empathy and grace as well as practical help and encouragement in this episode. Please, please spread the word to your friends because hearing this episode could make the difference in a child’s future.

Thank you to this episode’s SPONSOR, CANOPY!
Canopy is an app that blocks explicit, adult images on kid’s phones. We’ve talked before about just how important it is to guard your sons from some of the bad content out there. A lot of kids accidentally stumble across explicit images and videos online. One study found that twice as many kids had seen pornography as their parents thought.
Canopy blocks explicit content that other filters miss. How? Because it uses artificial intelligence to detect bad stuff before your kid sees it. Canopy also lets you block and manage apps and websites and works on Apple, Android and windows.
I actually interviewed canopy’s founder, Sean, last week and we had a great conversation about just how big of a deal this is.
