    Decoding boys and Their Journey Through Puberty

    Decoding boys and Their Journey Through Puberty

    I’ve said it a gajillion times. I’ll say it again. Our kids are waiting for us to start this conversation! But what if we get mixed signals in return? Like slammed doors. Or a son who suddenly grunts most of his words. What then? Is there a different approach for boys than girls? And how does a boy’s journey through puberty impact their response to pornography?

    I Don’t Think I Can Tell My Parents About This

    I Don’t Think I Can Tell My Parents About This

    I’ve heard it both ways. Either “I could never tell my parents” or “telling my parents was the best thing I ever did.” Sometimes from the same kid! The truth is, it’s often when our kids need us the most that they retreat and distance themselves from help.

    Helping boys build identity and self-worth free from pornography

    Helping boys build identity and self-worth free from pornography

    Porn is a health issue that impacts EVERYONE—women and men, girls, and boys. Still, the statistics are clear that boys consume porn more frequently and earlier than girls. So while we work hard to dispel the myth that “only boys struggle” we certainly don’t want to minimize or dismiss their specific challenges. What do they need? How can we reach them? And how can we help boys build identity and self-worth free from pornography?

    Dear Savvy: How can I avoid scarring or scaring my child with too much information?

    TMI, too much information. It’s a real thing. And it can present real challenges when talking to kids about pornography. How do we balance the desire to protect children while preparing them with the information they need?

    Managing Media and Tech with Multiple Ages Under One Roof

    Managing Media and Tech with Multiple Ages Under One Roof

    It's tricky enough managing media and screens with one child, right? What do you do when you have a whole crew of kids? A lot of well-meaning parenting advice tends to gloss over the reality that most families are navigating multiple ages and stages of development simultaneously. How do you shelter the youngest while giving your older children the autonomy they need?

Simple and actionable tools to support parents!

I really appreciate the simple tools and resources mentioned in this podcast. I especially appreciate the recap at the end and challenges given to help me engage my children in discussions about technology and pornography. If I had one suggestion it would be to make the episodes shorter. I’d love the episodes to be 10 minutes in length so I can listen in bite size pieces. Overall I love the podcast and will be sharing it with my friends!
