Here are a couple of others you can try:

“Do your friends watch porn?”
“Can you download porn on an xbox?”
“Do girls watch porn?”

The answer to each of these questions is “yes.”

These conversation starters can be enough to simply get the conversation started and then its up to you to keep that conversation going. Not every day, but with enough frequency that your young person knows you know that porn exists, and that you are not ok with them watching it.

I strongly encourage folks to watch our YouTube video series here:https://youtu.be/fHBweisq5vE It will give you everything you need to know to start that conversation.

And remember parents, with communication, someone has to be listening, and in this conversation, the person that should be listening is you.
