Good Pictures Bad Pictures: Porn-Proofing Today’s Young Kids, written for 8- to 12-year-olds, is designed to be read with a parent or guardian. It can be read straight through or one short chapter at a time. Each chapter ends with a “Let’s Talk!” section with a few discussion questions.

Narrated by a preteen boy, the story tells how his mother introduces the topic of pornography. She begins by talking about good pictures—like the ones in the family photo album, and then transitions to bad pictures—those that show people with “little or no clothes on.” In an age-appropriate way, the mom describes the dangers of pornography.

To help her son develop an internal filter, she then explains how people have “two” brains: the feeling part and the thinking part. The feeling brain helps us to survive but doesn’t know the difference between right and wrong, but the thinking brain does. She teaches her son that he must use his thinking brain to control his feeling brain.

Next, the mom describes the attraction center in the brain, which is part of the feeling brain. “It’s normally turned off in young kids until they get older. The attraction center creates feelings of excitement and happiness that lead people to fall in love. It makes them want to be close to one another” (p 24).

She goes on to explain how this natural function designed to create families is tricked by pornography. Instead of this attraction drawing people into loving relationships, pornography leads users to view other people as objects of pleasure. The mom continues by explaining the biology behind pornography addiction.

The mom closes her talk by giving her son a CAN DO plan. When he sees pornography, he can remember to

* Close his eyes.
* Always tell a trusted adult.
* Name it when he sees it.

Whenever a bad picture enters his mind, he can
* Distract himself with something different.
* Order his thinking brain to be the boss!

The book provides a glossary and tips for parents.

I wish such books existed when my children were young. With sexual images popping up in many places, a wise parent should talk about bad pictures early in a child’s life.
