CHAPEL HILL, North Carolina, March 23, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) â€“ Movies, television, music and magazines are fuelling promiscuity in children aged 12-15 according to a new study recently released.

All i have to say is that I am heavily involved with teens everyday of my life at the local YMCA. I know that my young people are challenged everyday with filth on television.

I'm not telling America to totally throw out their televisions, but I AM saying that you should monitor what goes into your young people's minds by maybe having a time where y'all as a family watch television together. May i suggest...ANDY GRIFFITH?!
Television, media, printed material, internet use- all influence kids TREMENDOUSLY: the Godly parent will attempt to control access to anything that is a powerful influence-to make sure it doesn't HARM them.
Mark 10:13-16 "And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them. "
