Pedophiles routinely introduce pornography to set the stage for abuse. Since children
of all ages are curious about sex, it is not difficult to hold their attention with
adult magazines, videos, websites and e-mail. Often, youngsters are exposed to increasingly

Children as young as three have been known to innocently imitate behavior they have
seen in adult videos or magazines.
Explain that adult magazines, videos or computer images can be used to lure children
into abuse. Tell children that should an adult (or older kid) show them such materials,
to make up an excuse to leave - and to tell you immediately. Reinforce the concept
of the Bathing Suit Zone and instruct youngsters to never remove clothing for photographs
