From FOCUS ON THE FAMILY, Today, 15-Feb-2008 Edition
by Dr Bill Maier


Here's one of my biggest worries -- how am I going to keep my kids
from some of the corrupting influences in our sex-saturated culture?
If you're a parent of young kids, I'm sure you worry about the same thing.

It seems you can't turn on the TV without being assaulted by profanity,
violence and sexual images. Even many so-called "family shows" aren't safe to watch
with your kids. And a lot of secular music these days has reached an all-time low
on the morality scale.

So, what is a parent to do?

First of all, we need to pay attention. It's naive to think that our kids aren't affected
by what they see and hear.

Our first job as parents is to monitor what they're watching and listening to.
Young kids should never be allowed to flip through TV channels or surf the Internet
without supervision.

And finally, we need to talk to our kids about making wise choices and developing character.
