    “Finding Help”: Consider reading the article together as a family and then discussing the following questions: (1) What types of images or media might children come into contact with? (2) Which of those would not be good for us to look at or focus on? (3) What would each person do in a situation where they see or hear something they know they shouldn’t? Discuss the strategies from “Oh No! Now What?” on page 74 if you need help with ideas (getting away from the situation, talking to parents, doing service, etc.).
