Media’s Exploitation of Children and Families

Visual, verbal, or tactile messages are communicated through a variety of media. The most common formats include TV, videos, video games, computers, music, movies, animation, magazines, CDs, DVDs, radio, phone, etc. In this age of positive and negative image bombardment all of us must make a decision about what is good and what is not.

Media tools can be used for good. However, they are often used to send negative information or images that affect children and families. That same media also opens the door for children, teens, young adults, and adults to be enlisted for inappropriate roles that are billed as entertainment.

Who are the victims? You are. Your family is. Your neighbors are. Your church is. Our nation is. A positive Christian influence in the world is victimized by this issue.

“Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil” (1 Thess. 5:21–22 NIV).

Steps to address this issue.

Do you live with chronic overload? Do stacks of to-do lists beg for attention? If so, I feel your pain. Add all I want to do with what I need to do, and life can become overwhelming. Occasionally I consolidate my lists, as a single page appears less ominous than several stacks.
