Isaiah 61:9 - The Goal of Parenting

  1. The single point of influence in kids/today’s generation that is more influence than parents and friends combined is media.

  2. Media is all about emotional disconnect.

  3. Media is the harddrive of faith – when your mind is consumed by media, it has little time to think on issues of the faith.

  4. People can’t exist without T.V and MEDIA because they need external noise to tune out their internal noise – something that terrifies them.

  5. No one after 10 hours of media has had MORE peace – or REST.

  6. The only group to limit media to weekends are the Educated community – they know that kids need to be free of media to limitations in order to be smart.

  7. Your goal is not to protect your kids. Your goal is to train mighty warriors.
