I feel so relieved to have this resource as a way to speak to my children about pornography. When I pre read this book, I cried. This was not a subject I wanted to discuss with my children, but I knew that it was important and needed to be done. I was so nervous when I started reading this with them. While reading, I felt such peace. This book was done so gently that they felt comfortable asking a variety of questions. We had so many amazing conversations! Another blessing from TGTB.

A day at the beach gives Dad and his two children the chance to address a subject that can be hard to talk about for both children and adults: pornography. Dad creates the Turn Away Game to help his children practice turning away when inappropriate pictures pop up on screens. Dad warns them to turn away even if they are curious, and he shares how looking at pornography can be addictive. The Turn Away Game is a gentle story that teaches children to discern between bad and good images and the importance of deciding to turn away.
