In Protecting Your Children from Internet Pornography, Dr. John Foubert writes about complex concepts in practical terms that will help you understand issues like how pornography affects the brain, how pornography is a recipe for sexual violence, and why you should take measures to protect your children and those you love. This scholarly perspective is well balanced by practical suggestions at the end of each chapter that gives parents advice on how to apply the information in their own home. It is time for a national conversation about what pornography is really all about. Foubert's book opens the door on that discussion and invites the reader to join the battle against porn with greater knowledge of its actual effects.
