Parenting can be tough because it's not only exhausting at times, it also holds a mirror right in front of you, forcing you to face you beliefs, hopes and fears; but it's also an amazing experience and there is no shame in admitting that sometimes we have questions as parents, and if we reach out, the answers are indeed there.
When was the last time your children watched a hardcore porn video online? I'm guessing you're all outraged and shouting 'never' but how sure are you about what children are viewing online? Leaving aside any debate about the rights and wrongs of pornography in society let's be clear about one thing. Children shouldn't be seeing it.
