We realize that no silver bullet exists to protect our children from pornography. Parents must constantly engage their children in the fight for honor and sexual integrity online. We hope the resources we have recommended here will help you continue an open conversation with your children so that their view of sexuality will be shaped not by online filth, but godly parenting.

Filters

One of the best options for blocking pornography is Internet filters. Three major filters we recommend parents consider are XXXChurch, Covenant Eyes, and Net Nanny. Each of these filters offer parents a variety of options from completely blocking adult content to emailing their child’s internet search history to a designated accountability partner. X3watch and Covenant Eyes also provide a smartphone app that parents can install on their children’s smartphones for further protection.
