Pornography addiction and other immoral behavior are like a disease.
The Plague of Pornography. Most young men commence their pornography use at the age of eleven; there are approximately 107 million monthly visitors to adult websites in this country; twelve million hours a day are spent watching porn globally on the adult-video site Pornhub; 40 percent of boys in Great Britain say that they regularly consume pornography—and on and on. Bishop Robert Barron, Word on Fire, The Catholic Thing.
Historically, we inoculated against smallpox. We would prevent the child from “catching smallpox” by deliberate introduction into the child’s skin of material from smallpox pustules. This process generally produced a less severe infection than naturally-acquired smallpox, but still induced immunity to it. The child’s body learned to “fight off” the more dangerous natural acquired smallpox by his/her exposure to the less severe material.
In order to effectively “inoculate against pornography addiction” and other immoral behavior, children must receive regular “boosters” of specific material at a certain developmental stage in their lives.
Inoculation against pornography addiction and other immoral behavior: Is the act of introducing a specific booster of “skills and knowledge” into a kid to produce immunity to pornography addiction and other immoral behavior.
A Booster: Is the material “skills and knowledge” used in the inoculation process. Multiple boosters are necessary to successfully inoculate against pornography addiction.
And finally let’s not forget who is responsible for teaching children.
No other work transcends that of righteous, intentional parenting! (The Sabbath Is a Delight, Russell M. Nelson Conference April 2015)
Intentional Parenting is essential, if you want your children and grandchildren to be successfully inoculated against Satan’s sexual messaging.
