Revealing Truth An Edge Parent Night on Pornography About this Parent Night This Edge Parent Night begins with a welcome to all of the parents and a teaching video that summarizes the importance of parents talking to their children about God’s plan and purpose for sex and sexuality so they can better talk to them about distortions of sexuality, such as pornography. The parents are then led through the content that will be presented to their children at the Edge Night about pornography, with questions for discussion between each section of content. After all of the content has been presented and discussed, there will be time for the parents to ask the youth minister questions or share concerns about the content that will be presented at the Edge Night. The Edge Parent Night ends with a time of prayer where the parents will be given the same prayers their child will be learning at the Edge Night to pray for help and protection in times of need — the Memorare and the St. Michael the Archangel Prayer. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Parent Night is to help the parents understand the importance of educating their middle school youth about the truths of pornography and how to support them if they have viewed pornography. Catechism # 2196 # 2332 # 2354 # 2360 - 2363 # 2523 Scripture 1 Corinthians 13:4 -7 Key Concepts We are greatly influenced by the world around us, especially through media. While there are good influences, there are also equally bad ones — and one of the most destructive is pornography. It is important to be aware of the influences and channels of influence that come into your child’s life. Pornography is destructive and harmful on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level for both the people who are involved in creating it and those who view it. If your child has come across pornography on accident, out of curiosity, or is continually watching it, they will be instructed to tell a trusted adult so it is important that you are prepared to have those conversations.
