+  Researcher: Study after study finding kids do best with married parents

  • Description: Three new pieces of scholarship released in recent weeks suggest that children do best with married parents and are more likely to face a host of challenges in other situations. W. Brad Wilcox, a sociologist at the University of Virginia, said that there is a “growing scientific consensus” that marriage and family structure are important for both children and parents, despite persistent efforts to claim otherwise. Writing in National Review Oct. 23, Wilcox said “study after study” is showing that children and families benefit from “strong and stable married families.”

+  Good Pictures Bad Pictures: Porn-Proofing Today’s Young Kids

  • Description: "Good Pictures Bad Pictures is a comfortable, read-aloud story about a mom and dad who teach their child what pornography is, why it's dangerous, and how to reject it. Using easy-to-understand science and simple analogies, this ground-breaking book engages young kids to porn-proof their own brains. It only takes a few taps on a mobile device for a curious young child to find an endless supply of deviant, hard-core, and addicting pornography--all for free. Unfortunately, many young kids are being exposed to pornography without the slightest clue that it can damage their developing minds."
