The porn problem: What's a mom to do?

Did you know there's a federal law that makes it illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to look at pornography?

And yet ...

~The largest group of viewers of Internet porn is children between the ages of 12 and 17. ~ Family Safe Media, December 2005

~In one survey, 42 percent of Internet users age 10 to 17 said they had seen online pornography. ~ Report released in Pediatrics February 2007

~Another study found that 47 percent of school-age children (7-18 years of age) received spam with links to X-rated web sites on a daily basis. One in five opened the spam. ~ Business Wire June 9, 2003

What's an mom to do?

I've got some practical answers to that questions. And I'll be talking about equipping moms to help their sons--and daughters--resist porn on this website as we transition it from Mommy-Come-Lately® to "Life: Perfection not Required.

Watch for a revamped website coming soon.

I'll still be talking about the joys and challenges of late-in-life motherhood--that won't change. But, I'm expanding my vision. I believe life doesn't have to be perfect to be fulfilling.

On a rather funny note: A good friend pointed out I had a typo in my original post. I wrote "perfecton" instead of "perfection." How ironic.
And, thank you, Marty, for pointing out the mistake and for being my friend, even though I am not perfect.

Thanks for the encouragement.
I am working on a book--expanding my conversation with moms from my original magazine article and workshop. My son will be writing with me.
