Heart to Heart Parent Workshop
Navigating Through a Pornified Culture by Richie Cruz
Yes, ‘pornified’ is actually now a real word! Focus on the Family has found that the average age of first exposure to pornography is 8 years old. Pornography addiction is epidemic among teen boys and girls and brings so much hurt and damage to their lives and relationships. Modern pornography, which is increasingly deviant and dehumanizing, is shaping the youth’s view toward relationships, intimacy and sexuality. In this session, Richie will help and equip parents navigate through this issue with your teen with practical tips . He also shares vulnerability from his own life in hopes to inspire other parents to walk transparent with their families in this today’s hyper-sexual culture.
