#106: Pornography and Boys Part 1 (with guest Stephen Arterburn)

With struggles coming at them from every angle, young boys need all the help from their parents that they can get to avoid temptations. One temptation that all boys face, but that can be extremely destructive, is pornography. That’s why this episode will be so important for parents of young boys since Dr. Meg interviews Stephen Arterburn. Stephen is the author of the book Every Man’s Battle, and a nationally and internationally known speaker, and he has great advice and warnings about the temptation surrounding young boys, pornography, and how demeaning and objectifying it is toward women. This is an episode that parents of boys cannot afford to miss! Also in this episode, Dr. Meg will give you her points to ponder that you can start using right away and answers questions from a mom about her 14 year old daughter who is in therapy for anger issues and from a mom about the importance of her husband spending one-on-one time with their twin boys. If you have a question you want Dr. Meeker to answer in a future episode or on the Meeker Parenting Community page, email them to askmeg@megmeekermd.com and listen to see if your question is featured next!
