The days of sitting around a record player in the living room are over. Today, kids can access all kinds of music with the click of a few buttons and listen to it in the privacy provided by headphones.
Because of this, parents should consider having a talk about music with their teens. The musical interests of teens are not as conspicuous as they once were, and it is a good idea for parents to be aware of the type of music their kids are consuming.
How a Talk About Music May Uncover Negative Influences in the Life of Your Teen
When was the last time you had a sit-down discussion with your teenagers about the music they listen to?
You might be surprised—shocked actually—to discover what kind of content is going into Junior’s head. If it’s going into his head, don’t be surprised if it eventually goes into his heart.
I was talking to one of the world’s premier Christian apologists one day, and he agreed with my statement that music is the single most powerful yet grossly overlooked tool of the devil to corrupt the hearts and minds of our teenagers, our society, and the church at large.
Do not assume that everything our kids are listening to is wholesome. Society has desensitized even the strongest among us these days, so have that talk.
