Youthful Porn Addicts

By ImageofGod

His parents were blind-sided by the phone call. Even though they'd noticed their son's grades had slipped, they blamed it on entering high school. He was a quiet kid, staying in his room when he was home. He'd lost interest in youth group, but since they were still able to get him to church most weeks they let it slide. Nothing outward seemed all that different, so when the principal told them to come to the school immediately, they thought there'd been a mistake.

Their son was part of an underground porn cartel in his school. Distributing pornographic DVDs had become a thriving business-but it had been a one-way street to a mind-consuming obsession for their ninth-grade boy. They'd been unwittingly raising a porn addict. The confiscated discs were beyond reprehensible.

The parents felt a mixture of shame, uncertainty, and fear that "normal" wouldn't ever return. Their fears would prove to be well founded. For their son, getting busted was the best thing that could happen. He wanted his old life back. But breaking out of his mind's porn prison wasn't something that anyone in that principal's office knew how to help him do.

Parents take note: This is just one kid in one school in one town in America. There are thousands and thousands of others. They just haven't been caught.
