Training your toddler to battle porn...

The battle against porn starts while your son is still in diapers…

My oldest boy, Hudson, has developed a habit of requesting his

dessert before he finishes his meal. This request always meets with a

firm denial from me. And so my sweet little boy decides he will not eat

at all. I am careful to inform him that this decision is okay, but that

he will not be eating his dessert either until he clears his plate.

Often, he will then attempt to persuade me to reconsider my position

with an oh-so-polite, “Please, daddy!” But his manipulation only results

in a much sterner reiteration of my earlier declaration. I do add a few

qualifiers this time around. I tell him that I want him to enjoy his

dessert. Desserts are gifts from God meant for our enjoyment, but they

only come after meals and not before them. Sometimes my son listens to

reason; sometimes he goes to bed with an empty stomach.

Regardless, this post is only kind of about desserts. It really is

about something much weightier than a popsicle. This is my preemptive

strike at the ominous threat of pornography that shackles and pacifies

the majority of our young men. (to read more...)
