  1. Thanks for reblogging this! As an Seventh Day Adventist, I find it a challenge to keep my son focused on Friday nights and Sabbath’s with the influence of the media and technology. I thank you for the suggestions that I’ve read in this article. I see a few suggestions I want to put in to use. We are fighting a battle with the enemy as he is relentless in the pursuit of our youth. He is using anything and everything to keep them distracted from things of God and His righteousness…

    Thanks for the blessing!

    1. If i may also add, the battle becomes easy with God’s guidance, if we know the tactics the devil uses. The deception and enticement and the whole worldly appeal is dangerous. Discernment is given if we ask for it. What’s dangerous is subtly presented as harmless and FUN.

    1. Hi friend! I try to catch up on all my friends’ article and just showing appreciation of your work is a thumbs up:)

      Like the author said, there is no guarantee of success but it is worth a try. Parenting in this day and age is a lot like navigating the net, but God honors the purity of purpose and motives. It can be done just a bit challenging.

      Thanks, too Jalal.
