Growing Up in the “Porn is the Norm” World
Gone are the days when a boy would have to look high and low to find pornography. New technologies have combined with our brokenness to create a world where even the youngest of kids will be found by pornography long before they might go looking for it themselves. In this seminar, Walt Mueller looks at how the pervasive presence of pornography is shaping youth culture and our kids. We will look beyond the facts to discover the influence pornography has in young lives, along with looking at practical hope-filled strategies for equipping kids to live godly lives in the midst of a culture where pornography has been normalized.
