Here are some of the best children's books about pornography that will help parents with protecting their child from the harmful effects of porn.
I'm sorry to say, but this is a conversation that you must have with your children. Online porn is so easy to access. Some children find it accidentally, by clicking on a popup or a link. Whereas others might search for information online about sex, and find pornography instead. And because it is easier to find porn (than to avoid it), it is a matter of when your child finds porn, and not if they find porn.
If you are unsure about how to start talking to your child about pornography, then this blogpost, How to protect children from internet dangers (like online porn), can help you with getting started.
The easist way to start this awkward conversation is with some children's books about pornography. The books in this list all talk primarily about porn. There are also some children's books about internet safety that may help with talking about online safety in general. Some of the puberty books and most of the sex education books for teenagers will talk about pornography.
You will only find books in this list that are readily available at bookshops today.
You can find more books about different topics in the main list of Sex Education Books for Children.
And if you find this list a little overwhelming, you might want to look at the age-appropriate list of sex education books.
You’ll find more information about sex education in my Sex Education 101 page.
NOTE: Before passing any book to your child or reading the book with your child, you should read it yourself first. I might think it is a great book for a certain age child or that the information is valuable, but you may disagree. You need to choose books that reflect your values and the messages you want your child to receive.
These are some of the many children's books about pornography that have been written. As I find more, I will add them to this list. They are all really good books that kids can read to find reliable and accurate information about love, sex and relationships. Plus they will help prepare you too!
If you have looked at these children's books about pornography, you may also be interested in books on other topics too. You can find many of them listed in my sex education book review site.
