      Kid’s Week, Pt. 4

      Matt. 18:7 Woe to the world because of its stumbling blocks! For it is
      inevitable that stumbling blocks come; but woe to that man through whom the
      stumbling block comes!  

      Over exposure can cause a child’s mind to develop prematurely. Even physical
      growth can be premature if a kid is exposed to things that are for adults
      only. I know we as adults like to have our fun. We like movies, and
      television. We like music and shows. But we cannot allow ourselves to enjoy
      certain things at the expense of our children’s minds. For example, when was
      the last time you went to an R rated movie and took your kids because you
      didn’t have a babysitter? Or you wanted to watch something at home and
      allowed your kids to be in the room with you even though it contained sex,
      nudity, language, etc? Many times we say “they are young, or just kids” and
      we think that it won’t bother them. But the next thing you know, they are in
      the room playing with other kids bodies, experimenting, or writing foul
      words in notes to their friends. They will even have “play” sex and
      nowadays, it’s very graphic. Why? Because they have been overexposed. Why do
      you think their bodies are maturing so fast these days?  

      They are making decisions to become homosexual or lesbian at very early ages.
      Kids that aren’t sexual don’t choose sexual orientations! But overexposed kids
      do.
      They are having grownup sex and relationships with their boyfriends and
      girlfriends.
      It’s because we are not protecting them from overexposure. They shouldn’t be
      asking sexually related questions when they are 7 or 8 years old. They should
      not be in a movie theatre watching a PG13 movie at age 10! And when the rating
      is
      R, that does not mean that you should go with them if they are under 17.
      IT MEANS THAT THEY ARE TOO YOUNG TO SEE IT!!!!! Our kids are playing
      house, doctor, and all kinds of other sex games, but they are not like we were
      with it.
      They are experimenting with oral sex, drugs, and drinking at very young ages
      because they have been exposed to these things during our quest to be
      entertained. Parents, relatives, teachers, etc! Be careful with the minds of our
      youth.
      The devil would want nothing more than to plant a sinful seed into their
      minds that will mature into a sexual struggle that will follow them into their
      adult years. How many of us have had to fight past sexual and emotional
      issues in our lives because of what we experienced as a youth? Well, things are
      much worse now.

      Suggested Reading: Matt. 19:13, Mark 10:14, Luke 18:16, Matt. 18:14

        • Oh how true this is! It’s awful how the children in this world are exposed to such things as sex, violence and hatred and many parents are oblivious to the negative effects it will have on their childrens futures.
          As you said one may not think at the time it will do them any harm but the next thing you know they are doing very adult-like things. Kids need to stay kids and do age appropriate things. They will see enough in this world without parents exposing them to filth and violence.  

          IMHO! (I learned that on here.
