What On Earth Is On
Our Televisions Today?!!!

Whether our houses have a new baby or toddlers or teens, I am very concerned about what is on the horizon as far as the airways are concerned. I am not one to go to the extreme of "no television in our house?" Please don't take that wrong. I have a great deal of respect for and admire those who can rid their homes of the box that carries so much junk. However we do enjoy a few things on t.v. as a way to relax after a long day of life's pressures and trials.

We are very careful what our child sees...changing the channel when something awful is on it... utilizing the parental locks...only allowing certain shows... and using some of the material to teach our child a lesson of what is really out there in the world that she will eventually encounter. Given the fact that we can't live in a protective bubble (although sometimes I wish we could!), we have to figure out a force field of sorts to prepare her. This goes for the internet as well but that is fodder for another day!

There are some great tv shows on. But.... PUUUHHLEASE! What is going through the minds of t.v. executives and writers these days? Why is there a weekly television show on a highly popular kids channel that promotes homosexuality and promiscuity. Why are the commercials riddled with half dressed people who are airbrushed to "perfection"? Why are the sitcoms so reliant on the main jokes to be centered around pre-marital affairs, infidelity, googly-eyed half-witted men, or dumbed down women and children?

Very gratuitous at first glance and yet seemingly representative of "what is going on with kids today". But deeper in if you put on your moral goggles you will see it is a deliberate attempt to nullify all that is pure, and brain wash our children into becoming mindless adults who are dependent.

Dependent upon...

...their parents for years beyond necessity.

...the government (which is precisely what they want).

...the hand out.

...the next paycheck.

...the free ride.

Keep the remote close at hand and check what your kids are watching. Don't assume that the shows are harmless if they "look" harmless. The snare is subtle and slipped in, but the bite is relentless and deep and long lasting.

Don't be discouraged when you feel like the only parent who is trying to tackle a battle that is raging and furious. Don't let it get you down when you feel like you are the t.v. police. Your kids will appreciate it some day.

I can't explain the sheer delight I felt when my daughter thanked ME for all those years of watching out for what she was watching. She literally watched only a handful of things... mainly reruns of 1950's sitcoms by her own choice. I was thankful because I had a budding Lucille Ball fan... a love and a laugh we could share!

Look forward to that day when your child thanks you for the same thing. That may very well be when they are an adult with their own kids, but it will happen. And you will know that smile of contentment your heart feels.
