Balancing Acts

…as in the actions that balance us. The gives and takes that lightens our burdens or increases our strengths. The movement that keeps us centered.

What to do when an adolescent has BDSM Porn on the computer?

Today on my twitter feed I was asked for a resource to refer a parent who found BDSM porn on their 12 year old daughter’s computer.
