    Sister Joy D. Jones, Primary General President, expresses that love is the greatest weapon against pornography: “As the popular catchphrase says, ‘porn kills love,’ but let’s also remember that love kills porn.” Here are three ways that expressing love safeguards children against the influences of pornography.

    Protection: “I Love You”

    Create a relationship where your children feel safe and loved.

    Response: “I Still Love You”

    Talk to your children about pornography and invite them to come to you with their questions.

    Healing: “I Will Always Love You”

    Reassure your children that even if they struggle with pornography, your love does not change.
