How to Teach Toddlers About Biblical Truths

Why the early years are the most critical!

Parents embrace the Easter Bunny but miss the key teaching years to build solid biblical truths in their child. These tips will help!

The Bible tells us, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). But how exactly are parents to teach spiritual truths to their young children? This is no small question. It is a question that has life or death consequences.

We often ask ourselves why so many teenagers walk away from their faith in college. Could the problem lie in the fact that we don’t start teaching biblical truths to our children early enough? Take Easter as an example. On Easter morning, most children look forward to waking up and finding a basket full of colorful Easter eggs, marshmallow Peeps, chocolates, jellybeans, and maybe even a stuffed bunny rabbit. But how many of them look forward to rejoicing that the Lord is risen? How many of them even heard the story of the resurrection?

What to Do to Combat Porn on Social Media

Parenting that will guide our kids' hearts in the right direction

We will never eradicate porn on social media. However, if we teach our kids what to do when they discover porn, we will help them know how to protect their hearts and minds from this very additive, damaging temptation. Problem solved.

I am 19 years old and an avid social media user. I know first-hand that in the world of social media, it is virtually impossible for parents to monitor every single platform, text message, and website their child engages in. Parents can put parental guides and restrictions on their child’s device, but this does not block every site, and they can’t stop their kid from seeing ungodly material while with their friends.

How to Talk to Your Kids About the Movies They Watch

Ted Baehr's new book Reel-to-Real is an excellent resource for families

Your kids pop on a movie and you finally have two hours of peace and quiet. However, don’t miss out on these meaningful character-building conversations you could have with your children by doing a quick, easy follow-up movies devotion from Ted Baehr’s new book Reel to Real.

This generation doesn’t read; they watch movies. Does that scare you? It shouldn’t. Yes, there are some pretty horrific films out there that hit the box office that should never been seen by a child (or adult for that matter). But luckily, there are still quite a few good flicks to see with your kids.

Ted Baehr grew up in the entertainment industry as a “broadway brat.” He now runs MovieGuide.org and is the author of the newly released book Reel to Real: 45 Movie Devotions for Families. When he started his organization, only 1% of movies had positive Christian content. Now up to 62% of movies have a Christian component, and of the top ten movies last year, 80% of them contained positive Christian attributes. That’s great news!

How to Talk About Tragic News Events With Your Kids

What to say and what not to say

What should you say and do when your kids hear about tragic news like school shootings or kidnappings in the media? How do you work through their fears, comfort and reassure them? Here’s how.

Being a parent is the best job in the world, but it is also the most difficult one. The highs are high, and the lows are low. Parenting is certainly not a task for the faint-hearted. The good news is that our children’s futures are never left up to chance. We know that our children are in God’s hands, and this gives us hope beyond measure.

Brainwashed Teens Reason Behind March for Our Lives Protest!

Hollywood Hypocrisy and Socialistic Schools Must GO

What happens when teens have been brainwashed by Hollywood and a socialistic school system? An attack against our fundamental right to keep and bear arms.

Knowledge is power. The problem with knowledge among our young people today, is that they are not receiving it. Our teens are being brainwashed by a culture, primarily Hollywood, who is training our kids how to kill through violent media including TV shows, movies and video games. And we wonder why our kids are picking up guns and not thinking twice about pointing it at their classmates and pulling the trigger.
