Saving Our Teenager from Inappropriate Media and Information

Sometimes early this year, a dear pastor told of how he was watching a preacher on television with his children in the sitting room, and suddenly he began to hear some funny funny things. His son look at him as if to confirm if what was being said is true.

He got the message, and asked that the channel be changed. The next day he had to sit with them to set the record straight.

A censor is any person who supervises the manners or morality of others. An official who examines books, films, news, etc. that are about to be published and cut out any parts that are considered obscene, politically unacceptable, or a threat to security.

As parents, it's our duty to ensure that we filter the information our children received from the media.

What we see and listen to go into the store room of our mind. That's our subconscious. They pop up unexpectedly and suddenly, we find ourselves acting out those things. The same is applicable to the children.

A censor board is a rating body under the ministry of information and broadcasting set up by the government of a country.

If a country is concerned about the type of information their citizen are fed with, how much more you as a parent?

Be a censor official!

Someone brought a bag full of clothes to my house once for my daughter. She decided to give some of the clothes out as it turned out to be in excess.

While in school one day, a number kept calling my line at intervals because my phone was in silent and I wasn't aware of the call.

At the point of returning the call, the same number called back. The person on the other end happened to be the father of one of my daughter's class mate.

The man had just came back from a journey only to be shown clothes given to her daughter by a friend. He immediately ordered the clothes to be returned. His daughter started crying, telling the dad she could vouch for the girl who gave her the clothes. After much although, he asked to reach the parents of the giver. Hence the need to call.

He asked to know if am aware of the gift to his daughter, their relationship, who am I, my family and all sort of questions just to be sure he's not treading on a dangerous path. He finally asked to see me and my daughter.

I find the whole scenario funny but glad that there are still parents who will not turn blind eyes to what is happening in their children's lives.

We actually went to see him, it was more funny to know he actually knows my daughter. I was just laughing all through our conversation.

According to him "I have actually met your daughter before, but you know a lot happens among these teenagers these days. Before someone would play on my intelligence, I have to go all the way"

Honestly, I was more impressed with the man's action. He was a watch man over his household. He took responsibility for what happens in his home.

How responsible are you?
