YOGYAKARTA. Pornography may be the most alluring trap of all for our teenagers. It certainly can be one of the most destructive. Children are naturally curious anyway. But when they approach adolescence and hormones begin streaking through their bodies, curiosity about the opposite sex soars.
Of course, curiosity is a natural, good thing—as are the normal feelings of excitement that accompany sexual awakening. But the trap of pornography can turn innocent inquisitiveness into an obsession with destructive, lifelong consequences.
Pornography can tear apart a home, and it can tear apart a person’s soul. And in some cases it leads to even worse consequences.
Therefore, to prevent those impacts, RZ organized an Upgrading Mentor program that involved mentors and parents of Anak Juara to learn to identify children who are exposed to pornography and to help them to shift into positive things.
There were 55 mentors and dozens of parents who attended the program. “This upgrading program is awesome. Hopefully, we could save the next future generation fro pornography,” Zaitun, a mentor, said. ***
