    Navigating Youth and Pornography Exposure: Expert Insights

    Navigating Youth and Pornography Exposure: Expert Insights

    "Get comfortable with the uncomfortable." -Devon Mills (And Johann Hari)

    In this episode Carly and Dr. Skinner welcome expert Dr. Devon Mills, founder of Thrive Counseling in Atlanta. Together Dr. Skinner and Dr. Mills, both with decades of research and empirical evidence to back it, powerfully examine the harm pornography poses with our young people.

    We go over the average age of first exposure, the developmental dangers, and the detrimental effects of early exposure.

    We cover how the challenges of pornography have evolved with technology advancing at such an extreme pace, and the necessity for proactive and supportive parental involvement.

    Dr. Devon Mills and Dr. Skinner invite parents to have the crucial, albeit admittedly uncomfortable, conversations with their children about pornography and sexuality.

    We discuss what the most helpful and also the least helpful responses are when learning of a child's pornography exposure.

    We also touch on the importance of not vilifying sex, the role of consistent and frequent dialogue, and understanding our own beliefs about pornography to effectively communicate them with our children.

    Parenting with a Partner: Navigating Parental Differences

    “As we go outside the family, how I see the world might first of all be influenced by how I see relationships in my own home.” —Dr. Skinner

    The conversation also addresses tailoring parenting approaches to each child's unique needs and the impact of home relationships on children's worldview.

    We hope to provide valuable perspective to parents seeking to enhance family unity and effectively address challenges.

    Nurturing Healthy Body Image

    Nurturing Healthy Body Image

    "The body is the cup in which to drink the world." --Dr. George Handley

    In this episode we highlight how attitudes towards body image begin formation at a young age and how body image affects overall mental health. The conversation advocates for a shift in how we view, talk about, and take care of our bodies--Rather than a focus on individual body appearance, listeners are encouraged to refocus their messaging on body appreciation. Young people can learn to appreciate their own bodies most especially for all the experiences their bodies allow them to enjoy. It is through our bodies we experience life. Dr. Skinner emphasizes the role adults play in shaping their children's body image and ultimately how taking care of our bodies allows our bodies to bountifully take care of us-- mentally, physically, emotionally and intellectually.
