When my children were younger, we had a videos series called Psalty the Psongbook. They had caseete tapes and movies. One of my personal favorites was “The Computer”. In this episode, Psalty taught a valuable lesson to the children. He taught them that whatever they listened to or watched on TV would program their minds and warned them of the consequences of putting “bad programming” into you mind.
The kids loved watching Psalty, and so did i!! I became very conscience of what my children watched and listened to – at least for as long as I could and controlled their lives as much as I could. When they became teens I just prayed that I had bought them up in the right way and that they wouldn’t depart from it. The lessons seemed pretty much like common sense, but now I realize it’s not. Lots of parents themselves have been “programmed” by the likes of these “reality shows” like BB Wives, The Kardashians, music videos and audios, etc . Unfortunately some take from just being “entertainment” and turn it into a way of life. Then when children are in school acting up, imitating what they see on TV and hear in the music, we wonder what’s wrong. Then they get misdiagnosed and labeled…for life…at the age of 6.
