What can I do to help my son with a porn addiction?

If your son’s father is rooted in good recovery, your son will likely be more receptive, assuming his father talks to him as one struggler to another, rather than an authority. Finding help for a teen or young son will likely present a huge challenge. I suggest you call 1-800-New-Life and ask if they are hosting retreats for young men. And order a copy of, Every Young Man’s Battle: Strategies for Victory in the Real World of Sexual Temptation (The Every Man Series) . Ask New Life if they know of other resources for teens and young men.

Avoid shaming and preaching, which can only drive a wedge that will guarantee that you cannot help. Also, be aware that you may need to create in-home boundaries to protect younger children and teenagers, especially girls. If that is necessary, do it quietly in a conversation with your son.
