Who is influencing your child? In today’s digitally driven society, Junior now has more access than ever to his social life.
1 Corinthians 15:33 states it clearly when we read, “Bad company corrupts good character.” What company are our kids keeping? Either in their physical lives, or on their devices.
The Power of Peers
As a kid, I remember the impact my friends had on my thoughts and behavior. But, at day’s end, those friends all went home to be with their families. Today, with no social media limits, the influence of our kids’ friends can virtually be 24/7. Proverbs 13: 20 says, “He who walks with the wise grows wise; but, a companion of fools suffers harm.” When that Proverb was written, there was certainly no way friends could have a round-the-clock influence on one another as they can today. Still, Solomon emphasized choosing one’s friends wisely. You may not want to choose your kids’ friends; but, it’s incumbent upon you to teach your kids how to choose good friends and keep them from choosing bad ones.
