Reclaim childhood innocence

The God-given right of children to their innocence is fast becoming a casualty of our post-modern, digital age.

While children are in the care of a loving parent or guardian it is possible, to a large extent, to shield them from violent or sexually explicit material. But outside the relative safety of home they are often confronted with inappropriate imagery and messaging - while travelling, shopping, visiting friends or even at school, on public billboards, shopfront windows, mobile phones, tablets, magazines, music videos or TV.

Preparing children before they are exposed

It is important to be proactive in preparing children before they are exposed to this kind of content. We know that while parents and guardians can teach their children, pray for them and put them on the right path, ultimately a person’s character lies in their own choices. Because of this, it is vital that children are taught while they are still young how to make good choices for themselves in terms of what they allow inside their minds.

Children naturally trust their parent or guardian to want what is best for them. We can equip them with the information they need to make wise choices and instil in them a conscience to help save them from a pathway leading to a lifetime of grief and regret.  Let’s teach them from a young age what it is to guard our eyes and minds from material that hurts others and damages our own lives.

The Centre for Human Dignity will work to educate all Australian children about the dangers of the ‘bad’ things that they see. We believe that every child has the right to be a child for as long as possible, and not to be exposed to adult content before they have matured.
