Rise in Grade-School Kids with Pornography Addictions

Rise in Grade-School Kids with Pornography Addictions

Sexting. Cyberbullies. Online predators. When your kids have access to a phone, computer, or tablet with Internet capabilities, it seems there's no end to the worries. And now there's a new one: kids getting hooked on online pornography.

ABC News is reporting on the rise of pornography addiction among kids as young as 8. Nathan Haug, a former addict who was interviewed for ABC's report, says he quickly learned how to hide his habit from his family, and Breanne Saldivar, also a recovering addict, says she isolated herself throughout high school because of the shame she struggled with.
