BULL'S EYE JOSEPH EDGAR SAMPSON ASKS- WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU STUMBLE ON YOUR TEENAGE KID WATCHING PORN?
Joseph Edgar Sampson is our regular columnist, he writes the page known to all now as Bull's Eye. He writes or should we say shoots as he deems okay. No topic is a no go area for him, he loves to get people's reactions. He has those who loves and waits for his next write-ups and he has others also who given the chance would shoot him down.
For today's write-up he has thought to provoke each and everyone's mind. There are those things we try to hide from, but that we can never run away from either we like it or not. His thought provoking question to all of us is-
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU STUMBLE ON YOUR TEENAGE KID WATCHING PORN?
This question shocks everybody I have asked. The kind of expression I get from people I throw this question at, range from bewilderment to screams. People especially females just freeze, squeeze their faces and begin to cast demons from me.
But the reality is that, porn is everywhere. Our phones, laptops, magazines everywhere and our kids daily assaulted with images and texts all lewd and enticing. The messages are so powerful that even matured people find it difficult to resist talk less of our young children.
So the question now is, what do you do if you are suddenly faced with this situation. Would you scream and faint, would you beat the child mercilessly, would you blame the father who would have accidentally left it for the kids to see, would you go into serious fasting and prayer or would you sit down and watch with the child.
Me I have no answer for this. Each time I look at my daughters, since this crazy thought crept into my head, I cringe.
Let me have your responses. What would you do?
