I was watching a show on RTL last night and they had a story about pornography videos on cell phones. The story was mainly focused on preteens and young teenagers and the responses from some of these kids shocked me to no end. The questions posed to the kids were along the lines of "When did you first see pornography?", "Do you have pornography on your cellphone?", "Who first showed you pornography?". One of the boys that they interviewed said that they were around 8 when they first saw hard-core pornography videos and that he had first seen them on his brothers' cell phone. He also stated that he has access to his father's "huge" stash of porn DVDs at home and that he watches them on occasion with his friends. They also interviewed a mother (who looked like they pulled her out of a gutter ) and she said that it was perfectly acceptable for her young boys to watch porn and "boys will be boys" and it's a manly thing. What do you think about this? Is 8 years old too young to be seeing pornography? Is this a form of child abuse? ------------------------------------- In my opinion, allowing children to have those types of videos on their cell phones and allowing them to view it openly at home is a form of child abuse. Children that young do not need to be seeing those types of adult images, let alone be having them in their posession. I think that if I were a parent to one of these young kids, I wouldn't allow them to have a cell phone...or wouldn't allow them to have one with video capabilities. Granted, they would be able to get it from somewhere else...I don't know. Is there really a way to control if your kids can or can't get to this stuff?
