The Turnaway Game

By Jenny Phillips
Picture Books

A day at the beach gives Dad and his two children the chance to address a subject that can be hard to talk about for both children and adults: pornography. Dad creates the Turn Away Game to help his children practice turning away when inappropriate pictures pop up on screens. Dad warns them to turn away even if they are curious, and he shares how looking at pornography can be addictive. The Turn Away Game is a gentle story that teaches children to discern between bad and good images and the importance of deciding to turn away.
