This is the mother of all rice krispy treat recipes. Actually, that’s not true. There are a gazillion out there and I have learned that although I’m an adult I totally still dig the RKT as long as it’s made well and not all dried out. This fluffy golden oreo funfetti rice krispy treats is so not dried out thanks to the gobs of marshmallows and marshmallow cream. Plus there’s sprinkles and oreo cookies. Totally kid approved. And fun. And care free. Which is why I made them because just two hours ago I was pretty fuming mad and I have to warn you, this post is pretty blunt and if you don’t agree please remember to be kind.

Today pornography popped up on our computer in front of our girls, who are 9 and 5. Our daughter was working on a power point for her book report on The Boxcar Children (one of my favorites as a kid) and she needed a picture of something from the book. Now, we are very careful about computers as we do not support pornography in any way. In fact, we wholeheartedly disagree with it because of the false reality, turning people into objects to be lusted after and the destructive addiction it becomes. Trust me, while the media may glorify it and make it into the norm we have witnessed lives ruined by the addiction and families destroyed. Anyway!  So we are always present for computer time, and I was doing a google search and clicked images. Someone had linked image after image to that search. It popped onto the screen and I yelled for the girls to shut their eyes as I quickly clicked off the page.

Cade and I talked and decided that although we’ve talked to our girls before about safe touch and unsafe touch, and pornography that it would be best to discuss it again. We started by showing them the video below, then we had a discussion about why we don’t look at such images and if they ever were seen how they should come to us and we would help them. We also discussed ways to remove the image if it popped into their head by thinking of a picture of a puppy or whatever they wanted.

We’ve upped the filters in our home as well. We chose to go with, Here’s the thing though, why should we have to do this? Pornography is something we don’t support just like how we don’t do drugs. We don’t have drugs arriving on our door or being handed to our children. We don’t smoke so cigarettes don’t just show up or get offered to our children. No, we would have to go buy those things. So why is pornography allowed to be so readily accessible?  We don’t support it and I should be able to choose if it enters my home.

I’m mad. I’m worried for my children because bodies are to be used these days. Billboards, TV ads, mall posters and so much more are all about sex. Women are to be lusted after and used. Men are to sleep around otherwise they are weird if they are chaste. How is this ok? I want our daughters to know true love. Respect for people and bodies. I want them to understand that images cannot take the place of something real and most importantly that intimacy between a man and woman should be something special and not what the world makes it into.

So there it is. We have the best readers ever so I’m sorry for the heavy note today, but I knew I could trust you all to be supportive. Gosh darnit, why can’t little kids just be allowed to be little and innocent these days? What does your family do to protect your children from pornography?

What Makes Rice Krispie Treats Hard?

High heat is the number one reason that rice krispie treats go hard.

Melt the butter and marshmallows over low heat for treats that stay soft and gooey.

Are Marshmallows Dairy Free?

Marshmallows are basically just sugar water and gelatin.

They are dairy free and gluten free.

Can Marshmallows be Frozen?

Marshmallows freeze well.

You can store an unopened bag in the freezer for up to 3 months.

  • While I appreciate and empathize with your frustration with porn as a parent, I feel this is a highly inappropriate place to vent. My 9 year old stepdaughter just googled this recipe and is now asking me what porn is. Those of us lucky enough not to have this issue yet didn’t need this new word popping up in a SEEMINGLY safe place like a rice Krispies treat recipe!!! Maybe this is something you should write in a private diary or talk to your therapist about. I’m sure my child isn’t the first very you g child to be looking for a treat recipe geared for specifically children. Parental controls doesn’t weed out recipes so this is in particular a really reckless parenting fail on your part. I hope you edit your recipe and find an appropriate place to vent about pornography.

    • Hi April, thank you for your thoughts. I understand 100% not wanting children introduced to things before their time. With all do respect to all parenting needs as I GREATLY believe that only an individual parent knows when to talk about what, did you know most children see their first pornography between 5-8 and often addictions are cited as beginning at age 10? I’m not trying to convince you, truly I’m not, but I’m so glad that we started to really educate ourselves years ago in our work with operation Underground Railroad. Tim is a close friend and my goodness, it’s so important to talk to kids from the get go with age appropriate information. You’d be surprised on our speaking tour around the world how many stories we learn about that are just regular families like ours. It’s infuriating and sick, but it a multi billion dollar business that’s growing rapidly so yes, our little ones know about images that they should never look at, what the word is, what safe and unsafe secrets and safe and unsafe touch is. But I remain firm, if you feel it’s not time for your child, I’m sorry it brought up a question on my site that you didn’t want to discuss. I don’t teach sex Ed to my kindergartner or even 10 year old, but then again where my sister lives their schools are teaching things I didn’t even know about until high school, including choosing genders. It’s a very, very sad world we live in. I hope you’ll forgive me and know that I truly do apologize. We are just different but the same, that’s all. You haven’t breached that conversation, my 10 year old isn’t to be on the computer without me yet. Each family just trying to do our best.

      All the love, and my sincerest apologies to you both. ❤️

  • Is extremely distressing,for myself,a 54 year old mother ,wife,grandmother;and a Jesus loving person as well;…To have had my brain poisoned with the most vile and beyond pornographic images on,of all places,Pinterest!Bare in mind,this is the ONLY social networking I am involved in.Mostly due to my love of all things creative,food the main entity;and to support the close to 400 mainly food related blogs that I receive daily.My username is ubermomy,and my pic is of myself and my 18 year old “baby”,1 of 4.Nothing enticing to be seen at all.Maybe I have lead a sheltered life,but to distort sexualit as well as the human form;making it ugly,vile,and distasteful,is so very sad.All we can do is be examples to our children and teach them to love and respect themselves,their bodies and each other.Love is the key.Pure love,not that which is stained with perversion.

    • Isn’t it just awful?! I’m so sad about this world.

  • I love the way you handled this with your girls. It makes me so sad that something like that would pop up with an innocent Google search. I wonder how often that happens when children aren’t supervised for computer time. I have two 5 month old babies and my husband already said to me that we are going to have to be so careful with computers in the future!

    • Twins!! How exciting and yes, we have to be so very aware of everything that could potentially cause issues in this world.

  • Please post about what filter you use! Is it just for one computer, or for all the wifi in your house (so it covers all the phones, tablets, etc). Our oldest is in first grade and is just starting to use the computer for homework and research, and I’ve been realizing that we don’t have enough safeguards in place. Any suggestions?

    • Nicki, many routers actually have filters you can use so look up yours but K9 is another great option.

  • That is out of control. And you were just looking for images from The Boxcar Children! My son used to be on Playstation sites, and that is where he came across some and I was shocked and dismayed and sickened also. I don’t believe it should exist at all, and it should NOT be popping up like that. What a world we live in. Thanks for sharing your yummy recipes.

  • Porn is terrible and so sad it’s taking over this world and destroying families. Fortunately people are realizing what it’s doing to our families and lives and have started support groups against porn. Thank you for your bold statement. I agree 1000%. I have 5 boys and it scares me what they have to endure. Part of me wants to keep them all inside for the rest of their lives. ?

    • Melissa, I could not agree more, it’s tempting to want to keep them inside! I know it’s not the answer but so glad to hear that the world is slowly starting to wake up.

  • Carrian,
    First, these look yummy! Second, thank you for standing up for your beliefs about pornography. I wholeheartedly agree with you. We haven’t allowed out 10 y.o. to be on the computer by himself (except for Kahn Academy), and don’t currently have filtering software, but I know it’s coming. What do you use?

    • Sorry about the bad stuff, being pro active is necessary in the world we live in. Made hour treat for a party. Kids loved it. FYI did you know the make a non stick foil. Yes it’s a little more but oh so worth it.
