Protecting our Children

A few weeks ago our kids and I were looking for a family night message video on our big screen. I began typing in the words to find the video, and with one wrong letter entered, soon inappropriate life size pictures were blaring in our faces. I screamed, "Everyone cover your eyes!!!" as I fumbled to remove the images from the screen. 

My night went from a wonderful delightsome family night, to a feeling of being wracked with fear about not being able to protect my family . . . in a matter of seconds.

I was sick to my stomach for hours thinking about how many times I had talked and talked with the kids about what to do if someone ever showed them inappropriate pictures. I never thought that someone would accidentally be me.

So this topic of inappropriate and pornographic pictures has been on my mind for a few weeks. I wish there was a way could shield our children from ever seeing anything we didn't want them to see. Or that we lived in a world where these things disn't exist . . . but they do. And no one is exempt from having these nasty images pop up and threaten our children's innocence.

An amazing lady who has studied the science of the brain, and how different pictures effect children is doing a free webinar with my sponsor for our online event coming up in March. Her name is Kristen A. Jenson.

I have had the same thing happen to us when searching YouTube. Then I discovered that there were safe search settings that needed to be enabled. I also discovered that if I actually logged into the app under my account it made it safer be aid it knew my browsing history and what kinds of things I liked. It is a scary world out there!
