Dad wants to protect his right to 'teach' daughter about pornography
January 22, 2014 10:59 AM Subscribe
Should I pursue legal action? I've met with my ex and a child psychologist re: his sex toy and porn collection as a means of getting him to agree that he will keep these materials locked up or password protected when she is with him in his home. However, he was vehemently opposed to being 'censored' in what he teaches her about the real world - specifically, he wants to expose her to Playboy, etc. as a way of teaching her. He did not listen to the psychologist's warnings that this is inappropriate behavior for a father to do with his daughter.

I am worried that it might take legal action to get my ex to agree to terms that specify that he is not to expose our daughter to pornographic/erotic images while she is in his care, even as a 'teaching tool' since these images are designed to produce arousal, and that would be a confusing sexual experience for her to share with her father.
I don't have much money, and I hate the idea of having to take him to court, but is this an important enough issue? Is he right to think that it's ok for a dad to hand his young daughter a Playboy and talk about how lots of people enjoy porn?
