Slacker and his wife accidentally forgot to turn the parental locks back on to the iPad after having friends over, and discovered that their 9 year-old son had decided to look up sex and wound up being exposed to extreme pornographic material.  Slacker and his wife are having a hard time deciding if they should maybe take him to a therapist to talk about what he saw, and perhaps get some advice on how to talk more about the situation. They don’t want to shame him, but they want to express that what he viewed was inappropriate and that type of material was an unrealistic expression of intimacy.

 

How do you communicate to your kids that watching explicit material is inappropriate without shaming them?
