From SugarBank, a blog about the business of pornography: A Pornographer's Guide to Protecting Kids from Porn Online. (This specific post does not contain explicit content.)

It's nice to see someone else saying the same thing I was saying to a newsgroup in 1999 about safe surfing needing active supervision more than filtering software. My favorite lines from Sam Sugar's article:

"Protecting children who aren't actively looking for sexual material is as simple as good parenting."


and

"When minors are interested enough in sex to look for it online, the rules change. You can't treat pornography as something they're innocently stumbling into, and you can't expect them to ignore the mental and physical aspects of puberty until they're legal adults."

I was very open with my daughter, too... but then, my parents taught me the basics at age 5 (because I was questioning).

But, when she was 9 we had this really awkward discussion about what a period is and why it happens and why it was happening to her at that particular time. {chuckle} I'm not sure she'll ever forgive me for that.

Then, again... she thought I was gay until I met oddharmonic and I actually think she was pissed when she found out that I wasn't. LOL So, who knows what the random kid will think?
