We know how prevalent the access to pornography is for children, we have ample peer-reviewed journal articles, and experts from around the globe agree that a significant number of young people will be faced with the negative impacts and require restorative support.
Important 'next steps' to ensuring the health and wellbeing of children and young people is working with our Government and technology companies to prevent the harms of pornography from occurring in the first place. PREVENTION includes reducing access through a range of ‘Digital Child Protection Buffers’. eChildhood has adopted the term Digital Child Protection Buffers, to refer to the various ways in which pornography harms can be prevented. These Digital Solutions form one component of four within our Public Health Approach, first detailed in The Porn Harms Kids Report - protecting our kids from online pornography harms is everyone's business.
As an advocate, we invite you to download The Report and share it with your Federal Member of Parliament, key stakeholders and other decision makers, to help them understand the scope of this issue, and implement effective solutions to deal with pornography as a form online sexual abuse upon our children and young people.
Take the time to read this information to assist you when discussing the harms of Internet Pornography on children and young people with your Member of Parliament, the eSafety Office, or other people of influence.
