Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying. Proverbs, Chapter 19, verse 18.
Sometimes it’s all too easy to give in to our children to keep them from nagging us. Their best interest needs to always be in sight as our ultimate goal. I hear children in primary grades talk about graphic, sexual things that they must have picked up from the shows they watch. It may be easier for parents to just let their children watch these shows rather than to have to deal with their children nagging them.
The real question should be, “What does this do to the child?” Little children are exposed to all too much sexually explicit, violent and vulgar language and scenes in the media today. The media isn’t going to stop making these shows, so it’s up to the parent to value their child enough to monitor the shows they view and put up with some nagging and fits. After all, it’s their child’s well-being that counts.
