Join us for an afternoon session designed for parents, youth workers, teachers, school administrators, and anyone who works or is involved in teenagers’ lives.
Did you know:

Studies have found that frequency of porn use correlates with depression, anxiety, stress, and social problems.
There are clear differences in the brain activity between patients who have compulsive sexual behavior and healthy volunteers.
Porn use has been found to influence some users’ sexual preferences, leaving them wanting what they’ve seen onscreen an significantly less satisfied with sex in real life.

Among the effects of the use of pornography are an increased negative attitude toward women, decreased empathy for victims of sexual violence…and an increased in dominating and sexually imposing behavior.

The Department of Justice and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children both recognize that pornography is an element that adds to the serious problem of sex trafficking.

90% of boys and 62% of girls view porn before age 18.

Easy accessibility has turned the Internet into today’s “drug dealer”- a place where porn-related searches represent nearly 25% of ALL online inquiries.

Come learn more about this issue facing today’s teens and families. Saturday, August 17th at 3:00pm at the Brown Grand Theatre. This special event is free.  Call the TFC office or send us an email for more information
