this is the saddest thing that parents have to deal with..but having said that what are we to do?? I have come to know that it is prayers for deliverence work well every parent especially mothers please get the book "Power of a praying parent" by Stormie Ormatian there is e section on praying through your childs room.. It worked well for me cos I once found my then 14 year old son with a CD of porn and I was not amused. He has not touched or seen them again and we are in constant discussions on the effects of the porn on his marriage life and relationships. God bless and please get the book, it will bless you
