Format: Paperback
A better parental handbook will be hard to find. The authors have drawn from their own life experiences and decades of professional involvement to produce a volume that should be required reading for every parent.

Protecting Your Child sounds the alarm on an issue that should be alarming to every parent. The authors point out that there has been a 500% increase in rape over the 19-year period from 1980 to 1999, the decades during which the U. S. porn industry grew from a $4 billion annual business to a $10 billion dollar business. Worldwide, it is estimated that pornographers profit $56 billion a year.
York and LaRue document countless law enforcement records that tie pornography to sex offenses. Other disturbing statistics add to the cause for concern. For example, the authors write, "A report in the Philadelphia Inquirer in 1993 noted that nearly half of the nation's child molesters were children. In addition, in 1983 there were only 22 juvenile sex offender programs nationwide; in 1993 that number had grown to 755. Today there are more than 1,200."
Readers should not overwhelmed by the barrage of statistics and tragic stories told in the opening pages. LaRue and York always provide an antidote including concrete steps for action.
Both authors are honest and straightforward in sharing how they were themselves victims of pornography at a young age.
"I am fighting pornography for the sake of our nation's children who are becoming the primary consumers of pornography," says LaRue. The book documents how children are, indeed, being exposed to hard-core pornography at younger and younger ages.
York was first exposed to pornography as an 11-year-old in 1955 when a local drugstore began carrying the brand new Playboy magazine.

This is an excellant book to equip parents with up-to-date information on how to protect our children from pornography. The authors include resources for internet filters, counselors, and groups that can provide additional support.

Format: Paperback
This book has practical helps for parents to teach children about sex from God's point of view. Pornography violates that, and parents need to know how pervasive pornography is: sex-ed materials in public schools, dial-a-porn, the Internet, magazines, comic books, videos. If children don't learn about good sex from their parents, they'll learn about bad sex somewhere else. Highly recommended!!!

Format: Paperback
York and LaRue's book presented interesting arguements of reasons to protect children in the so-called "X-Rated World". However, the book also shared opinions and social commentary with serious religious biases. It was difficult to concentrate on the topic when the authors often digress onto religious topics of which I do not agree. The authors address the issue of premarital sex and homosexuality with complete intolerance for those of alternative lifestyles. When they accused Planned Parenthood of "promoting traditional-values-free sex for teens" and of having a "radical agenda" I grew frustrated and abandoned the book. The authors, while presenting accurate information about the pervasiveness and danger of children accessing information via the Internet, they also presented their own "radical agenda"s with Christian biases and promoting wholly the intolerance of homosexuals.

Format: Paperback
Jan LaRue is one of the most narrow-minded, accusatory, and ugly (I mean on the inside) women I've ever heard speak (or read) and you'd be better off following the guidance of someone who truly cares about your children, not just about her own narrow agenda.
