Guarding Our Children







We live in a world that is moving fast in technology, faster then I can keep up with.
It spins my head to hear of the things a smart phone or I-? can do. 

I don't keep up with it!  I have nothing against having these things, but we must 
set boundaries, and restrictions on these electronics
that we have in our homes and in our hands.
As  parents we must beware of the dangers.
Oh, how we need to guard our homes, and our children with these types of things.

If we think about it, it is no difference in setting restrictions on your T.V.
 or movies you may let or not let your kids watch.
Before we trust handing our child a smart phone or I-? ~ think again.
We are handing that sweet innocent child this world and all it's filth.
We would not hand our child things that would harm them physically
 (drugs or alcohol),or let them drive a car before
we knew they could handle it.

Children can not make a wise decision with the phones or I's they are children.
Wisdom, understanding, and maturity comes with age.
Let's teach them the dangers and how to stay away from them.

There is a place called  Accountable 2 You It's not only a great thing to do
for your older teen phone, but it is great to have it on all your devices
(phones,tablets, I's, laptops at work and home) for each family members.
This allows you as parents to keep track where you family is visiting and even all texts.
It teaches your family to be accountable to each other.  Accountability is a good thing.

Here's a post that really covers more on the danger of the phones in children hands.

Matt 19: 14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, 
to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

  1. I agree with everything you said here. Our daughter is grown but she has two preteens and worries about all of these same concerns with them. The biggest thing right now is, why can't we have a phone, all our friends have them? It is not easy being a parent,sometimes you just have to be the bad guy . . . And hope that they will one day know that you were really being the good guy.

    1. Thank you Connie, yes they do feel that way and use it to put the presser on the parent. It isn't easy to raise kids today. They will understand when they mature and gain understanding. Hugs!

  2. This is an excellent reminder of this topic. I just read something yesterday about the new 5G systems they're putting in and I didn't like what I read. The frequencies are so high that people are getting sick being around the transmitters. I know people love their technology, but I don't think that's a good reason to rush into it with open arms all so quickly.

  3. I love this post. I really dislike families that think getting the kids all the latest tech is going to give them happiness. It makes me cringe. How about a romp in the mud?

  5. Excellent ideas on how to deal with the issues that are plaguing parents and children alike today. The advance of technology is determined to take away our ability to think and reason. It is like putting a rattlesnake in the hands of a child! Thank you for sharing these words of wisdom and warning today!
