Last night I spoke at a stake Relief Society meeting about getting organized.
Even though I showed up to speak about organizing, as usual I diverged and talked about media for a while. Afterward, moms asked me to email them information to help arm families against inappropriate media. One idea is to include one of these media resources in a family home evening lesson each week or month until you feel like you've covered the topic enough (for now).
|Last night I spoke to a stake Relief Society in Syracuse, Utah. This time it was my own stake...fun!|
1) Here is the handout I created to use when I teach this topic.
2) Turn off the TV and Get a Life! Audio talk by John Bytheway.
4) Here you can listen to an education week talk by Randal Wright called To the Parents of Youth: Avoiding Oft-made Mistakes.
|Randal Wright is one of my favorite BYU Education Week speakers. I've heard him live many times. I was happy to see that a handful of his talks are free online.|
5) This is my favorite parenting book, also by Randal Wright: Power Parenting in the LDS Home: Avoid the 25 Most Common Mistakes
This is a great read-aloud picture book to open up this important conversation with children. Kids are becoming addicted as young as 7 or 8, because they get exposed and parents haven't given them tools of what to do.
Watch this 2 minute video to see how this picture book may help you save your child's brain, soul, relationships, and future.
I'll add a few more resources as a P.S.
8) Protection from Pornography -- A Christ-Focused Home
By Linda Reeves, LDS General Conference talk, April 2014
By Clayton Ostler, is a great presentation on installing filters and blocks on all your computers and devices.
