From hundreds of channels on TV, to Netflix, YouTube, and Instagram, today’s kids are inundated with entertainment options. With so many available options, it’s difficult for parents to weed through everything to determine appropriate content for their children. It’s much easier, instead, to leave them to their own devices.
As much work as it may take nowadays, parents should be more vigilant in considering entertainment options for their children. It seems that celebrities, themselves, are selective in what they do and don’t allow their children to view. Shouldn’t we be even more inclined to do the same?
Making Wise Decisions About Our Kids’ Entertainment Options
Careful consideration should go into what we allow our children to be entertained by. Keep in mind that many of today’s entertainers are not parents themselves. Because of this, they have little interest in how their craft actually affects our kids. Fame and profits are their top priorities.
Think of all the actors and musicians that sing a different tune, and act a different way when they finally do have kids. In an interesting twist, many celebrity parents won’t even let their kids watch TV, much less allow them to be entertained by what they freely entertain our children with. We need to make sure that we are making wise decisions when it comes to entertainment and our children.
