The corporations, the kids channels, the toy companies, the cereal companies just won’t leave my kids alone. They seem to think they know better than I do about how to parent my kids. Sorry, no, my responsibility is to protect my children from ideas and ideologies, especially sexual ones, that they are not mature enough for yet. These cartoons are aimed at little kids.
Parents, you need to know what your kids are watching and guard their hearts and minds.
Here’s the verse:
Ephesians 6:4 Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
The first part of the verse is to remind fathers to be kind and gentle with their children not giving rules just for the sake of rules, but the second part of the verse talks about ‘bringing up children’ in the training and instruction of the Lord. Paul is talking to fathers here, but the principle applies to mothers as well in training and teaching children.
Bringing up children is about setting a clear example for how they are to live but for parents it is also about what to protect them from. Children should not be subject to things beyond their maturity level, but more and more this culture is insistent that children, YOUNG children, must know about gender theory and LGBTQAAIP+ ideology. They are insistent that this is the way towards a utopian society and the parents, the ones who want to protect the children, are the ones in the way of advancing this goal.
And here’s a link to the article by Abigail Schrier I mention in the podcast today.
