It used to be that kids had to go outside to play in the dirt. But surveys say that there's plenty of filth online to keep them busy. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. When kids are cruising the Internet, it's not the surf but the turf more parents should worry about. A third of all children are accessing online pornography by the time they're 10-years-old, according to experts. And by age 14, a majority of them are regularly seeking it out. Of course, some people will point the finger at technology -- but the blame begins at home. If moms and dads don't approve of those images, their kids need to know it. In a new survey, teenagers say that their parents have never brought up the harms of pornography. Not once. The web may have posted those pictures, but it's our job to explain why they're wrong. And if your teenagers don't know where you stand on pornography, how can they stand up for what's right?
