Parents: Have You Checked Your Child’s Cell Phone Today?

It’s not enough to explain to your children not to talk to strangers or to get into a strangers car. Thats 20th Century parenting. Since entering the 21st Century, a new phenomenon has broken out that parents should be aware of. Children are forwarding pictures of themselves with no clothing on. Parents, did you know that is a crime and if found your child could be locked up in jail and be forced to register as a sexual offender??????? Did you also know that this will ruin your childs hopes and dreams of ever getting gainful employment and will practically force your child to live where other sexual offenders of greater crimes live?????

A recent national survey found that 20 percent of teens said they have sent or posted nude photos of themselves. Most of the teens also admit to sharing those images with others when they receive them.

So, why do they do it? More than half of teen girls said they felt pressured by a boy.

The problem extends far beyond the walls of the schools, and because the pictures are of children under 18, they are considered child pornography. A recent national survey found that 20 percent of teens said they have sent or posted nude photos of themselves.

 Parents, Proverbs 22:6 says “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” It’s up to YOU to monitor your children’s cell phone activity. It’s up to YOU to explain to your child the difference between right and wrong and the consequences thereof. Did you know that according to John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:”????? Did you also know 1 Peter 5:8 says “..your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” This includes YOUR CHILDREN.

8-9 hours out of the day, your children are NOT in your presence because they are in school or doing school related activities. They are learning things that are contrary to God’s Word. The only way you’ll be able to deprogram your child is by telling them why its important to not do things that could cause their ultimate demise.

I’m not trying to tell you how to parent your child, I’m only trying to assist you in understanding 21st Century techniques that the enemy has in place to entrap your child for eternity. Thank God for holiness, but thank God for having a parent who does NOT play any games when it comes to their child’s soul.

Take that cell phone every chance you get and make sure nothing elicit is on it. Your child will be pleased, however Christ will be pleased even the more.
