Media Choices

Media ChoicesMedia Choices
by Phillip Telfer

For: Parents of all Children, ages 11-19

Today’s entertainment has become one of the biggest stumbling blocks to purity in our culture. The author helps us examine the choices we have and questions to consider when making choices for and with our children. The author does not suggest an all out ban on media, but helps us think through the media choices we make.

Parenting teens was a noble challenge long before society became surrounded by captivating screens, and navigating life as a teen had plenty of difficulties and distractions long before the game changing technology of the smartphone. The bottom line is that parents and teens are both in need of help! Our generation is faced each day with an all-you-can-eat media buffet. It has a huge influence on how we think, how we spend our time, and how we relate to others.

Phillip Telfer handles this challenging subject deftly with story-driven analogies that serve as a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down. While this does not conclude with a call to be anti-media or anti-technology, it does raise concerns about the unchecked enthusiasm regarding media and entertainment, which are often consumed without discretion.
