Children and Pornography
We all know that children are increasingly being targeted to look at porn. The pornography industry is a well oiled machine in using the latest marketing tools to get people to click and view.
Here are some of the latest statistics from a study in the United Kingdom.
1. 1 in 20 visitors to adult sites are under 18.
2. 6% of children aged 15 or under had accessed an adult website over the course of a month
3. 5% of visitors to adult sites were under 18, and one website alone, Pornhub, was visited by 112,000 boys in the UK aged between 12 and 17.
This is why we, at the AZ Family Council, feel so strongly about educating parents about the harms of pornography. Many parents don’t even know this is happening and when they do find out, parents don’t know where to turn. It’s time to step up and begin in the conversation in our homes and communities about the devastation porn is causing our children, families and communities.
